Narrative:
On November 29, 1994, at 1553 central standard time (CST), a Yakovlev YAK-52, N2215C, operated as a personal airplane by Harlass P. Moore of Caruthersville, Missouri, impacted level terrain at the Caruthersville Municipal Airport (M05), Caruthersville, Missouri, and was destroyed.

The flight operated under 14 CFR Part 91 as a personal flight, had originated from West Memphis, Arkansas, at an undetermined time, and no flight plan was filed. Upon arrival at M05, the airplane was observed overflying the airport, then making a second pass and performing a roll over the airport at approximately 1000 feet above ground level (agl) and continuing southeast. A short time later the airplane was observed approaching from the southeast, rolling inverted at approximately 300 feet agl, and stabilizing inverted for a few seconds. The nose then dropped to near vertical, and the airplane impacted the ground near the airport boundary.

The commercial rated pilot sustained fatal injuries, and a post-crash fire occurred. The cockpit area was destroyed, and minor damage occurred to the surrounding crops and field.
