NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that, during the takeoff roll, multiple geese flew across the runway. One goose struck the propeller and another struck the windshield. Subsequently, the airplane yawed to the right, into tall grass and the airplane spun 180°, coming to rest with the landing gear sheared off.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and empennage.

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

NTSB Probable Cause

The airplane’s collision with geese during the takeoff roll.
