NTSB Factual Report

On January 13, 2018, at 0919 Hawaii standard time, an experimental JA30 Superstol, N413Z, was substantially damaged during a ground loop at Kalaeloa Airport /John Rodgers Field (JRF), Kapolei, Hawaii. The private pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed no flight plan had been filed.

The pilot reported that earlier that morning, during his first landing at Dillingham Airfield (PHDH), Mokuleia, Hawaii, the right strut "felt stiff" and the airplane behaved as it was trying to ground loop. After landing, the pilot performed a walk around inspection and stated that both landing gears appeared normal. He decided to fly the airplane back to JRF where his hangar was located. About 30 feet into the landing roll, the right strut collapsed and the airplane ground looped.
