From the official accident report:
"It is the opinion of the Committee that this student pilot was practicing elementary 8's at a low altitude, with a strong gusty wind condition. It is believed that the pilot instructor allowed the student to make a steep climbing turn down wind a nd the airplane reached a stalling position without his applying corrective action. After stalling, the airplane fell of and struck the ground, with the resultant damage to the airplane, and injury to personnel."
