NTSB Factual Report

During a telephone interview with the NTSB investigator-in-charge, the pilot reported that, he "landed around 80 knots" and "didn't get the flaps down" before landing. He further reported that, the airplane "didn't want to stop" and it then "ran off the runway." During the runway excursion, the nose wheel collapsed, and the airplane nosed over.

The fuselage, wings, and vertical stabilizer sustained substantial damage.

The pilot did not report that there were any preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

An automated weather observation station, about the time of the accident, 28 nautical miles west from the accident site, reported wind from 170° at 7 knots. The landing was on runway 36.

The pilot failed to submit the NTSB Form 6120.1 Pilot/ Operator Aircraft Accident/ Incident Report.

A witness reported that he was at the airport in a hangar, and noticed that the accident airplane was "high, fast, and down wind." He added that he observed the airplane overrun the runway and nose over into the grass.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's decision to continue an unstabilized approach for landing in tailwind conditions, which resulted in a runway overrun and a nose-over.
