Air taxi Friday June 19, 1992
While cruising at 8,000 feet, the aircraft entered a rapid descent, during which it reversed direction in a left turn. The descent was briefly arrested at a low altitude; however, the aircraft again turned left and descended rapidly. There are indications that the center of gravity moved further aft during the flight, until reaching a point at which the pilot was unable to prevent significant diversions in both climb and descent from the reference altitude, culminating in the rapid descent.
