Narrative:
LN-HAS took off from Værnes airport, ENVA, at 0949 UTC on a local familiarisation flight with 2
persons, instructor and student, on board. At time 1025 UTC, the aircraft was observed by witnesses
spinning into the sea in the Trondheimsfjord were it quickly sank. No survivors were found in the
area by rescue helicopters.
The wreckage was located on the bottom of the fjord at 100 m depth and was recovered from the
water 9 days after the accident. The two persons on board were still strapped into their seats.
The flight of the aircraft was plotted by two different radar stations, one operated by ATC and one
by the Royal Norwegian Air Force. The plotted data coincided, and gave an accurate portrayal of
the aircrafts manoeuvring during the last minutes of the flight.
The aircraft entered a spin during recovery from a power on stall at 2 100 ft and hit the water
approximately 25 seconds and 7-9 turns after spin entry. There was no sign of spin recovery before
impact with the water.
The two pilots were certified and qualified according to Norwegian CAA requirements. The Pilot in
Command was flight instructor rated and also CAA approved aerobatic instructor with authorisation
for public aerobatic displays.
No safety recommendations were made during the course of the investigation.

Owner Magne Lilleli, Bjugn/Ørland Flyklubb and chartered by Værnes Flyklubb.
