The training flight originated at Houston, at 17:59. The flight had been cleared by Beaumont Approach Control to a practice area between the 270 and 360 degree radials and within 20 DME of the Beaumont Vortac, and given a block of airspace between 5,000 and 7,000 feet. The pilots practiced various maneuvers under the direction of the instructor-pilot, including steep turns and approaches to stalls. Then the first pilot was asked the to demonstrate an approach-to-landing stall. Flaps were extended and the landing gear was lowered. Power was reduced to idle and the plane stalled at an altitude of 5000 feet. The crew were not able to recover and the airplane impacted marshy terrain in a nose-down, wings-level attitude.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The first pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control and adequate airspeed. Contributing factors included performing intentional stalls at too low an altitude to afford a safe recovery, the pilot's failure to add power in an attempt to recover, and the flight instructor's inadequate supervision of the flight."
