Location:Greenwater, WA -   United States of America
Phase: Take off
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Greenwater, WA (21W)
Destination airport:Puyallup, WA (1SO)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot said that soon after departure from runway 33, he inadvertently entered a fog "bank." He said that he attempted a climbing right turn to return to the clear air over the departure runway. He said that his airspeed dropped, and the aircraft stalled subsequently impacting trees and descended vertically to the mountain side. The airplane came to rest inverted bending and wrinkling both wings and the fuselage.
Probable Cause: The pilot's inadvertently flying into IMC weather conditions, his failure to maintain sufficient airspeed for flight, and his subsequent inadvertent stall/mush into trees. Contributing factors were the fog and the trees.
