NTSB Factual Report

During landing on runway 26 (2,000 feet long by 50 feet wide, turf), the landing gear contacted soft terrain and the airplane pulled to the left. The pilot attempted to correct; however, the airplane continued into an adjacent corn field and nosed over. Examination of the airplane revealed the right wing was bent aft and twisted. The pilot reported no mechanical problems with the airplane prior to the accident.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's loss of directional control due to an encounter with soft terrain while landing.
