At about 400 or 500 feet the left Wing w As carried away throwing the air plane completely out of control. It crashed in the rear of a residence and burst into flames setting fire to two residences and a warehouse. Statistics Tell Story. The Accident boards to opinion was that the Accident probably was caused by poor judgment on the part of the Pilot for subjecting a commercial air plane modified for Long distance flying it to prohibitive loads. This was an error in judgment rather than a violation but the Pilot had been seen to engage in illegal acrobatics at a Low Altitude during his earlier flight. A Pilot May violate the regulations repeatedly without suffering an Accident and there undoubtedly Are Many violations of the air Commerce regulations and air traffic rules which never come to the attention of the Bureau. But available statistics and general observation Point unmistakably to the fact that the Pilot who ignores regulations or makes a practice of violating them thereby multiplies the hazards and risks in his flying.
