NTSB Factual Report

The pilot of the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that, during landing, the airplane bounced. On the third bounce, the airplane veered off the runway to the left, the nosewheel impacted a sandbar, and the airplane nosed over.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the empennage.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The pilot failed to submit the NTSB Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident/Incident Report Form 6120.1.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper landing flare, which resulted in a bounded landing and subsequent loss of directional control.
