June 4, Prescott, Ariz. / Schweizer SGS-1


At about 15:20 mountain time, a Schweizer SGS-1-26 glider crashed while landing at Coyote Run Gliderport. The student pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured. The pilot said she dropped the microphone in turbulence and it lodged behind the control stick, making it impossible for her to apply aft stick. The glider maintained about a 15- to 20-degree nose down attitude until it collided with the ground and a fence.
