Narrative:
On January 20, 2020, about 1220 central standard time, a Cessna 150G airplane, N4763X was
substantially damaged during a collision with guy wires about 8 miles north-east of Cherokee County
Airport (JSO) Jacksonville, Texas. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was registered to and
operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual
meteorological conditions prevailed for the local flight and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated
from JSO at 1200.

A preliminary review of radar data revealed that the airplane's last depicted altitude at 1220:14 was
about 577 ft above ground level. Physical evidence indicated that the airplane initially impacted a set of
guy wires that were secured to the top of a 1,586-foot television tower, located about 1,100 ft east from
the airplane wreckage. About 5 ft of the outboard section of the airplane's left wing, was located about
468 ft south of the tower. Additionally, impact marks and stripped paint found on the separated wing
piece were consistent with the imprints and paint transfer from the wire. With the exception of the
outboard section of the left wing and the portion of the right fuel tank, the entire wreckage was located
within about a 50-ft radius of the main wreckage site.
