It was a beautiful sunny Thursday morning over Brevard County countryside west of Cocoa, Florida in June 1978.
It was a perfect day for flying with scattered puffy clouds at 6,200 feet and the winds were around 8 knots.
A white with red Piper Warrior Cadet airplane, with the tail number of N986ZT, flew straight and level at 3,500 feet just west of Lake Poinsett.
