Détails:
The flight had departed Tucson, Arizona, on a special VFR ferry flight to Greybull, Wyoming. The airplane was not instrumented for IFR flight. When the flight reported over Winslow, it was advised that VFR flight was not recommended northbound from its present position. Surface weather conditions in south-central Wyoming/northwestern Colorado at the time of the accident were consistent with low ceilings, clouds and snow. Radar data shows the aircraft tracking northbound slightly east of the Dixon Airport, and executing a clockwise 360 degree turn northeast of the airport and in the vicinity of one of the witnesses. The last radar target received placed the aircraft approximately 1 mile NNE of the accident site. The aircraft impacted snow covered terrain in a steep nose-down attitude.

Probable Cause:

Probable Cause:
The pilot-in-command's continued VFR flight into instrument meteorological conditions which resulted in a loss of control due to the lack of aircraft attitude indicators and resultant pilot spatial disorientation. A factor which contributed to the accident was the weather condition(s).
