Circumstances:
Four pilots left Oklahoma City-Will Rogers for a local training flight. While cruising at low height, between 200 and 500 feet, the airplane went into a dive and crashed in a canyon located in Mustang, about six miles west of Will Rogers Airport. The airplane was destroyed and all four occupants were killed.
Probable cause:
The pilot failed to maintain flying speed during VMC demonstration manoeuvre and the conduct of the demonstration flight at an excessively low altitude.
