NTSB Factual Report

The pilot of a recently purchased tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that following two go-arounds, during the landing roll, the airplane veered to the left. The pilot further reported that he attempted to abort the landing, but was unsuccessful. The airplane continued and veered off the runway. During the runway excursion, the airplane nosed over.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings, fuselage, and empennage.

The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during the landing roll, which resulted in a runway excursion.
