Excerpt
Excerpt: On August 19, 1995, a Bellanca Scout Model 8GCBC N86587, sustained an in-flight structural failure of the right wing and crashed on Lufker Airport, East Moriches, New York, killing the pilot The Model 8GCBC is a two-place tandem, strut-braced, high-wing airplane constructed with sitka spruce wing spars and covered with Dacron fabric, The flight was being conducted for the purpose of aerial advertising, (banner towing) According to a witness, the pilot was attempting to engage the banner but missed it and was in a climb maneuver when the wing snapped and folded upward and inboard The airplane rolled to the right, descended and impacted the ground, and was engulfed in flames shortly thereafter, Between December 9, 1983, and September 8, 1984, three Bellanca Scout Model 8GCBC.
