Approaching Orillia Airport, the crew stated their intention to do a fly-past on runway 04. The aircraft descended to approximately 150 to 200 feet over the runway at a speed of about 200 knots. During the climb-out and at about 1,000 feet above the ground, the aircraft started a roll to the right to an inverted attitude. It then descended steeply, striking the ground right side up in a near vertical left-wing-down attitude.
