The Cirrus SR22 GTS X G3 Turbo, N661FT, went down in the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge west of Boynton Beach, near Palm Beach, FL. The pilots of the non-aerobatic airplane were returning from an air show and flying in formation with two aerobatic airplanes. A pilot of one of the aerobatic airplanes reported that, shortly after the accident airplane crossed the border of an unpopulated wetland area, the airplane's pitch smoothly increased upward to an angle of about 30 degrees. The accident airplane was flying at a global positioning system-derived altitude of 29 feet. The airplane then began a roll to the left, and, as the airplane rolled toward an inverted attitude, the pitch quickly began decreasing below the horizon. The airplane then began a rapid descent and impacted the marsh below in a 68-degree nose-down pitch attitude.

Both occupants were killed
