The pilot of the single engine airplane stated that he took off from the remote grass airstrip, which had 80-foot-tall pine trees along both sides of the air strip. Shortly after takeoff the pilot heard a bang and the airplane veered right. The pilot tried to correct the flight path, however, the airplane descended and impacted pine trees about 300 feet east of the departure end of the airstrip. The pilot was able to extract himself from the cockpit before the airplane was consumed by a post accident fire. A Federal Aviation Administration inspector and the county sheriff inspected the control cables of the airplane and found them all connected and continuous between the flight control surfaces and the cockpit controls.
