NTSB was created in 1967. I'm guessing you will not find an NTSB report for an accident in 1928 :)

Sure looks like an "elevator stall" or "tail stall" to me.

The tail forces cannot overcome the large wing's negative Cm.

That is what it looked to me.

Also looks like the forces are too great to move the elevator at speed.

Pilot has also no harness.

Ground crew in Santiago will get ground out. Lots of space on the tarmac there. Nice airport, great country to visit. I have been to a few airports where such an event would not surprise me. Only time I saw a ground collision was at the airport in Hong Kong, if I recall correctly. Think one bird was getting a bit of a push from wind, scraped the elevator of a nearby MD-80.

Lost a Grumman Tiger and 2 people over the weekend just outside Houston.

Engine failure or problems from witnesses.
It was not engine failure. An instructor and a student flew into IMC. Classic graveyard spiral. Unfortunately none of us who fly out of the airport were surprised. To a man we have all at one point said it was only a matter of time till something happened with him. Poor ADM.

2 dead in small plane crash on Whidbey Island

WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. – Two people are dead after a small plane crashed Wednesday on Whidbey Island southeast of Langley, officials with South Whidbey Fire say.

According to the FAA, the single-engine Cessna 177 Cardinal went down just west of the runway at the Whidbey Airpark just before 12pm. It hit the ground and ended up in a patch of woods nearby.
