June 03, Tulare, Calif. / Cessna 150


At 10:00 Pacific time, a Cessna 150L crashed into a farm equipment yard shortly after takeoff from Mefford Field, killing the student pilot. Witnesses flying remote-controlled airplanes nearby watched the accident airplane take off and noted the flaps appeared fully extended. As the airplane climbed through about 250 feet and began a left turn, the airplane stalled and spun into the ground. The wreckage showed the flaps were fully extended.
