It appears the Kasperwing U/L mishap at Arlington Airfield was the unfortunate result of a rotor/downdraft that frequently occurs at the area. ........
Update: or more likely was affected by the wake of the PPC that was operating at the time of the accident. WX conditions at the time of the incident were near calm and stable air letting the wake remain a threat for a relatively long time.
