Nov. 11, Lake Elsinore, Calif. / Schweizer SGS 1


At about 15:08 Pacific time, a Schweizer SGS 1-36 struck trees while approaching Skylark Field. The student pilot was seriously injured. The student was returning to land when he misread the altimeter and initiated a circle to lose altitude. Midway through the turn the student realized his error and headed directly back toward the airstrip. The glider continued to descend and crashed about a half-mile from the airstrip.
