Mishap aircraft was being flown by a student and Instructor pilot from the Spangdahlem AB, AERO CLUB. The student pilot was practicing basic flight maneuvers in the AERO CLUB practice area south of Spangdahlem AB. The mishap aircraft apparently entered an unrecoverable spin and impacted the ground, killing both occupants. The probable cause was determined to be that the mishap aircraft encountered residual wake turbulence vortices from a B-737-200 passenger airliner in bound to Saarbrücken Airport, Germany. Both victims were active duty USAF personnel.
