Narrative:
At the end of a flight from Cerfontaine Airport near Cerfontaine, Namur, Belgium (EBCF) to his home base at Buzet/Pont-à-Celles Airport, Hainaut (EBBZ), the pilot announced his intention to land. He also informed another ultra-light pilot on his intention to land exactly when the Hobbs meter of his aircraft was indicating 1000 hours and asked him to delay his take-off.

The pilot accepted to wait and observed the airplane passing in front of him and continuing his right hand downwind leg, he then saw the airplane making a 180° right hand turn in order to directly align in final leg. Suddenly he saw the airplane stalling, entering into a right hand spin and colliding with the ground almost vertically.

The cause of the accident is a loss of control of the airplane during the last turn in a landing circuit. The loss of control probably occurred due to the execution by the pilot of a 180° turn with an inappropriate monitoring of the speed and slip indications.

Contributing factors:
- At the end of the last flight, the pilot focused to land at 1000h “Hobbs”. This probably prevented him considering a go-around.
- The description of the stall characteristics found in the flight manual could have reduced the pilot awareness about the danger of stall with a “Rans Coyote” airplane.
