Narrative:
The amateur-built airplane was substantially damaged and the pilot sustained fatal injuries during an in-flight collision with terrain. The owner of the airstrip reported that he knew the accident pilot and waved at him during a pass over the airstrip prior to the accident. He stated that the accident pilot had landed at his airstrip in the past and he assumed that the pilot was approaching to land at that time. He noted that he lost sight of the aircraft behind a tree line. He stated that shortly afterward he looked down the runway and saw the wreckage. He did not see the accident sequence. The accident site was located in an agricultural field approximately one-quarter mile east of the runway. A post-accident inspection did not reveal any anomalies consistent with a pre-impact failure. Flight control continuity was confirmed from each control surface to the cockpit area.
Probable Cause: In-flight collision with the ground for undetermined reasons.
