Anatomy of a Fatal Stall/Spin

by Rich Stowell (Lifetime Member) on December 21, 2009

AvWeb 12/21/2009: So-called over-the-top or cross-control stall accidents have been common among general aviation pilots for years. But no one has ever really documented what happens in one – until now. Thanks to the widespread use of glass cockpits, this fatal stall accident has been extraordinarily well-documented by accident investigators and includes a video re-creation. Aviation Safety magazinewalks you through the accident in this video. Aviation Safety also interviewed John King (King Schools) and Rich Stowell (SAFE #0002), two veteran flight instructors who discuss the state of stall and spin training.
