Subject:   Recovered wreckage of Kitfox IV-1200 Speedster N728KF

On August 28th, 2004 N728KF was destroyed shortly after takeoff in an accident 10 miles west of Payson, Arizona. While in level cruise flight about 800-1000 feet AGL and about 70-80 KIAS the aircraft was caught in a lateral windsheer that caused the airspeed to drop to 30 KIAS in about one second. The aircraft stalled and was in mid-recovery when it struck rough terrain in a wilderness area.
