NTSB Factual Report

The flight instructor and pilot receiving instruction were practicing touch-and-go maneuvers in a conventional gear airplane on runway 8L. During the accident landing, the airplane touched down on the runway "centerline with no drop-in or bounce." During the landing roll, the airplane veered to the right. The airplane then lifted onto its left main landing gear and exited the runway surface. The airplane came to rest upright at a 90-degree angle to the runway. The flight instructor reported he was at the controls during the accident landing. Examination of the airplane revealed the fuselage was buckled. The flight instructor and pilot receiving instruction were not injured.

NTSB Probable Cause

The flight instructor's failure to maintain directional control during the landing.
