Descripción:
The C-47A was on a local flight out of Camp Mackall. It was manoeuvering at an altitude of 6000 feet when it stalled in an inverted attitude. Witnesses say the plane was doing a loop at the time.
The crew attempted to recover, but overstressed the fuselage in doing so. The airplane broke up in midair.
