NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported he was not going to be able to stop the airplane before the end of the runway while landing on his private runway. He added engine power to abort the landing; however, the nose gear contacted the soybean crop located off the end of the runway and the airplane nosed over resulting in substantial damage to the fuselage. The landing was being made to the north on the 1,050 foot long grass airstrip. The wind condition recorded at an airport 11 miles from the accident site was from 220 degrees at 4 knots. The pilot reported the local wind was calm and that there was no mechanical malfunction/failure of the airplane.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's delay in aborting the landing which resulted in the airplane contacting the terrain off the departure end of the runway.
