July 6, 2008, in Point Lookout, Mo., Cessna 337 Skymaster


The solo student pilot reported a moderate crosswind when he was attempting to land so he executed a go-around. During the go-around, he raised the flaps. He reported that taking out two notches of flaps caused the airplane to lose too much altitude and “the plane stalled as I pulled back on the yoke.” The airplane struck several trees and impacted the ground. He reported that there were no mechanical difficulties with the airplane.
