  1. I did some research on this incident. I found that this aircraft is currently for sale. At one point during the last flight it looks like the aircraft was aerodynamically stalled/spun but recovered. I suspect the recovery was abrupt and possibly wrinkled the wing skins, just a guess as the rest of the flight looked normal. I theorize this was a demo flight possibly with a prospective buyer on the controls.

    1. Looks like a stall demo was performed. That poses an interesting insurance scenario if the owner was not at the controls during the stall demonstration.
