NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during the landing roll a "dust devil hit the rear" of the airplane, "throwing it into the right lane and sliding the airplane sideways down the runway." The pilot reported that the airplane veered off the left side of the runway, over a dirt berm, and impacted a fence with the left wing.

The pilot reported there were no pre-impact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.

A witness that was at the airport reported the wind was calm all day.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the landing roll, which resulted in a runway excursion and a collision with a fence.
