Circumstances:
The pilot was performing a training flight in the region of Newcastle when he encountered poor weather conditions en route. He lost his orientation and decided to fly lower, certainly to establish a visual contact with the ground when a wing hit a stony wall. The aircraft crashed and came to rest upside down, broken in two. The pilot was injured while the aircraft was destroyed.
