Détails:
A Fairchild C-123K Provider cargo plane, registered N709RR, was destroyed when it crashed at the southern flanks of Mount Healy, about 2 km from the Denali National Park, AK. The crash started a wildland fire. The three occupants didn't survive the crash.
Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight that originated at the Palmer-Wolf Lake Airport, AK and was destined for Unalakleet Airport (UNK), AK. The purpose of the flight was to transport a large generator to Unalakleet.
Numerous people observed the airplane flying low and slow over the Denali National Park before it entered a steep left bank and then nosedive into the ground. The airplane impacted sloping, wooded terrain adjacent to Park Road, which is the main road into Denali National Park. The airplane collided with numerous standing Spruce trees that were densely situated on the hillside.


PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to maintain adequate airspeed to avoid a low altitude stall, resulting in a loss of control and collision with terrain."
