On October 16, 2016, about 1430 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 150F airplane, N7948F, impacted a field after takeoff from Berry Hill Airport (7GA7), Stockbridge, Georgia. The private pilot and passenger sustained serious injuries. The airplane was substantially damaged. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan had been filed for the local flight.
Shortly after takeoff from runway 11, the airplane cleared a line of trees 75 to 100 feet tall, approximately 500 feet from the departure end of the runway, then went into a steep nose down descent and struck the ground at a nearly vertical attitude less than 800 feet from the runway.
The airplane was secured for additional investigation.
