NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that he was landing the tailwheel-equipped airplane at a remote, 1,100-foot long dirt airstrip. The pilot stated that during the approach, on short final, the airplane struck the top of a fence post located at the approach end of the airstrip. The airplane subsequently landed hard and nosed-down. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the horizontal stabilizer and elevator. No preaccident mechanical failures were reported by the pilot.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain clearance from the fence post on approach.
