On May 21, 2014, about 1430 mountain daylight time, a Rockwell International S-2R, agricultural airplane, N702CB, sustained substantial damage after colliding with terrain while maneuvering near Medicine Lake, Montana. The airline transport pilot, who was the sole occupant of the airplane, was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a flight plan was not filed for the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 137 aerial application flight. The local flight departed from Sher-Wood Airport, Plentywood, Montana about 1230.

The pilot reported that after he completed an application run over an agricultural field he maneuvered the airplane into a left turn. The airplane descended and the pilot attempted to correct the airplane's attitude; however, the airplane subsequently collided with terrain. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wing and fuselage.

The wreckage was recovered to a secure location for further examination.
