NTSB Factual Report

The pilot overflew the airport prior to landing to verify wind conditions. The windsock indicated a slight crosswind for the landing. While on short final approach for runway 12, the airplane encountered a wind gust, and the pilot applied rudder and aileron to compensate for the wind conditions. The airplane stalled above the runway and landed hard. The airplane departed the runway surface, entered a ditch, nosed over, and came to rest inverted. The pilot reported no mechanical problems prior to the accident. The airplane's wings and fuselage were bent and cracked. The pilot reported that the wind was 220 degrees at 9 knots, gusting to 14 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

The failure to maintain adequate airspeed for the wind conditions during landing, which resulted in a loss of airplane control.
