NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during landing, after returning from a maintenance facility, he encountered a quartering tailwind, which "made the airplane drift left of the center." He corrected with right rudder, then applied left rudder which produced a right skid. Subsequently, the main landing gear encountered a "muddy area of the [grass] strip." The airplane nosed over and came to rest inverted, resulting in substantial damage to the airplane. The pilot reported no anomalies with the airplane.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control during landing, which resulted in an encounter with wet/muddy terrain and a subsequent nose over.
