99 Shockingly, an Air Force test pilot crashed while landing and died in a Cirrus SR22. Max and Rob pull the accident apart and examine how failure to follow procedures caused this crash. The pilot entered the traffic pattern two hundred feet low. But on base he was 12 knots fast with an 18-knot tailwind. Turning to final at just 200 feet above the ground he was pitched up and in a 48 degree bank.
