On June 18, 2021, about 1357 central daylight time, a Cirrus SR20 airplane, N62WR, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident at the Conway Regional Airport (CXW), Conway, Arkansas. The pilot and sole occupant sustained fatal injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

A witness reported that after the airplane departed Runway 22 at, CXW, he heard a transmission over the Universal Integrated Communications (UNICOM) frequency that stated “six-two whiskey Romeo emergency landing runway 2.” Shortly thereafter, he observed the accident airplane make a left turn and overfly runway 4 and stated that the airplane appeared “crazy fast.” After the airplane overflew runway 4, it entered a steep left bank and then spun. The airplane made one and a half rotations and then impacted the ground.

The airplane impacted the ground in a nose low, inverted attitude. the right wing fractured and pieces of the wing were located in the initial ground scar. Propeller slash marks were found in the ground near the initial impact point and contained white paint transfer signatures (see Figure 1). The propeller blades were found fractured and separated from the crankshaft flange.

Fragments of windscreen were found in the vicinity of the propeller. During the impact sequence, the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) deployed and the canopy was found still bundled in a straight line away from the wreckage. The total debris field from the CAPS rocket to the main wreckage was about 110 ft. A post-accident examination revealed the pitot tube cover remained secured on the pitot tube.

The airplane’s avionics were retained for download and analysis.
