May 05, Perry, Ga. / Hispano Aviacion HA-200-Saeta


At about 1700 eastern time, a Hispano Aviacion HA-200 Saeta crashed in Perry, killing the pilot. Witnesses said the aircraft appeared to be moving slowly during the takeoff and initial climb and stayed at a high pitch attitude after it had rotated. The airplane then entered a 90-degree banking turn to the left, as if the pilot was attempting to make it back to the airport. During the turn the aircraft crashed.
