NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during landing, the airplane's left main landing gear tire went flat, which resulted in the left wingtip contacting the ground and substantially damaging the left aileron. The pilot reported that the tire was good during his preflight inspection. Postaccident examination of the tire revealed no evidence of a failure to identify the reason why the tire went flat.

NTSB Probable Cause

A flat main landing gear tire during the landing roll for reasons that could not be determined because postaccident examination did not reveal any anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
