NTSB Factual Report

After completing one landing, the pilot decided that he wanted to practice landing with a tailwind. After departure he maneuvered to perform a circling power-off landing on the opposite end of the runway. During the landing he stated that he touched down fast, about 500 feet from the departure end of the runway, bounced a few times, and then overran the runway.

The pilot stated that he attempted to abort the landing after bouncing on the runway, but when he added power abruptly, the engine hesitated briefly, and the airplane impacted terrain. During the runway excursion, the airplane struck a fence and came to rest about 1,600 feet past the end of the runway.

The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wings and fuselage. The pilot stated that he observed winds about the time of the accident that were from the South at 10 knots, which would have resulted in a direct tailwind.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to perform a go-around in time to prevent a runway overrun and collision with terrain.
