NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he was performing a “wheels” landing at the conclusion of a local flight. After the main wheels had touched down, the airplane yawed left and he corrected with right rudder. The airplane veered sharply to the right and began to skid sideways down the runway. The pilot was not able to recover from the skid before departing the right side of the runway. The left main gear dug into the ground and collapsed, and the airplane rolled onto its left side substantially damaging the left wing and left horizontal stabilizer. The pilot reported no pre-impact mechanical anomalies with the airplane.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control while landing.
