101024_211.jpg - Date of accident: 26-FEB-2011| BAC 167 Strikemaster | N167SM | Pilot: Michael Faraldi | Hudson River, Kingston  NYOn February 26, 2011, about 1332 EST, a British Aircraft Corporation BAC 167 Strikemaster, N167SM, crashed into the Hudson River, following an in-flight loss of airplane control, near Kingston, New York. The experimental airplane was registered to and operated by Dragon Aviation Inc. under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was filed. The private pilot was killed and the airplane received substantial damage. The flight originated at John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, about 1235.According to a representative for Dragon Aviation, the pilot was flying the airplane to Columbia County Airport (1B1), Hudson, New York, with his permission. The purpose of the flight was to reposition the airplane from Smyrna, Tennessee to Hudson. A fuel stop at Johnstown was planned.While at Johnstown, the pilot purchased fuel and telephoned friends to inform them that he would be flying over Kingston-Ulster Airport (20N), near Kingston. After calling his position on the airport Unicom frequency, he reportedly flew over the airfield and performed a rolling maneuver, described by witnesses as a roll or a barrel roll. Following the rolling maneuver, the airplane remained in the traffic pattern and the pilot executed a second pass, down the centerline of runway 15 at low altitude and with the landing gear retracted. Following the low pass, the pilot reportedly pulled the airplane up to a nose-high attitude and initiated a left-hand turn. During the turn, the airplanes nose reportedly dropped and the airplane entered a steep, descending turn until it impacted the river.
