The aircraft, operating in the vicinity of Castle Howard, North Yorkshire, was engaged in a general handling flight which included aerobatics. It was seen by witnesses in the area and recorded on radar. One witness saw the aircraft carry out a loop and, having passed the apex of the manoeuvre, enter what appeared to be a spin. The aircraft did not recover from the spin and struck the surface of a ploughed field, fatally injuring both persons on board.
