November 17, Albion, Mich. / Taylorcraft BC12-D


At 1545 eastern time, a Taylorcraft BC12-D crashed after an inadvertent stall/spin while maneuvering. The pilot reported minor injuries and the passenger reported no injuries. The pilot said he was maneuvering at 500 to 800 feet agl on a deer-spotting mission when he stalled the airplane during a left turn at 500 feet. The airplane entered a spin, which he recovered, but he did not have enough altitude to arrest the descent. The airplane crashed into heavy brush at nearly a level attitude.
