Default Fatal RV-6 Accident at CMD

There was an RV-6 accident today at Folsom Field (Cullman, AL) today with two fatalities. Our thoughts go out to the victim's families.

Please refrain from commenting/speculating on what may be an all-too-familiar scenario. The facts will come later.

Default It's listed as a 360...

"While rotating the vacuum drive it was
noted that all six cylinders displayed thumb compression and suction."

Clerical error?

If my understanding of the NTSB Preliminary Report is correct there were no annual condition inspections (or indeed any maintenance whatsoever) recorded in the aircraft log books since the C of A was first issued in August 2014. Amazing. The final report should be most interesting.
