Default RV-7a Fatal Crash N787NV 2/19/22

Van's RV-7A, N787NV: February 19, 2022, near Triangle Airpark (AZ50), White Hills, Mohave County, Arizona.

(NTSB?) Accident Number: WPR22FA100
The accident number may be a Kathyn's Report number.

Today's search in VAF and on-line, and in NTSB and Kathyn's Report I did not find any updates or current status of the accident.

Are there any recent reports on the accident probable cause? If so I would like to see them, please list sources.

Only this from the Aviation Safety Network: https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/275672
"Confidence Rating: Information verified through data from accident investigation authorities

Narrative:

On February 19, 2022, about 1328 mountain standard time, an experimental amateur-built Vans RV-7A airplane, was destroyed following an inflight-break up near Triangle Airpark, (AZ50), White Hills, Arizona. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

Recorded Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) showed that the airplane departed Boulder City Municipal Airport (BVU), Boulder City, Nevada, about 1315 and ascended to about 5,500 ft mean sea level (msl). The airplane traveled east south-east over mountainous terrain for about 28 miles and made several wide 90-degree turns. The radar data showed that airplane began a rapid descending turn near Triangle Airpark, in the area where the main wreckage was located.

Security video captured the airplane in a steep nose down spiral before it impacted terrain. Several pieces of aircraft structure were seen falling from the airplane as it descended to the ground.

The airplane was relocated to a secure facility for further examination."


This is approximately the 8th or 9th in-flight breakup of an RV-7/7A.

It seems that the NTSB investigation and the Las Vegas FASSTeam investigation is not present even as an 'Open' case. It would be helpful for RV'ers to know what has been found so far and to be kept up to date with where the investigation is now.

[ed - it is DR’s policy that there be no speculation on incidents/mishaps until official final reports are issued, so interim official data (if available, which it usually isn’t) shouldn’t be used for discussion anyway. Since there is no official new information on this event, I am closing the thread - DR can re-open if he feel it is appropriate….mod]
