May 20, Newellton, La. / Golden Circle Air T-Bird


At approximately 1930 central time, an unregistered Golden Circle Air T-Bird crashed while maneuvering near Newellton. The non-certificated pilot and passenger were not injured. The pilot said they were flying at 400 feet agl when he decided to show the passenger a series of stalls. During the second power-off stall the airplane entered a left spin. When recovery from the spin was unsuccessful, the pilot released control of the airplane so the aircraft could recover on its own. The airplane crashed in an open field. The pilot added that as far as I knew the airplane was spin resistant.
