Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) officials are investigating a recent Florida aviation accident near Winter Haven that killed the pilot and his passenger. Accident investigators say that a 60-year-old Zephyrhills woman and a 61-year-old Inverness man were the only two people aboard an ultralight aircraft when it crashed. They say that the pilot of the Airborne Windsport experimental aircraft was performing touch-and-go maneuvers when the aircraft hit the ground, flipped and skidded nearly 200 feet before stopping. Early indicators suggest there was a gust of wind that may have contributed to the pilot losing control of his aircraft.
