NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot, after completing a local flight approximately 1 hour in duration, he returned for landing at his home airport. He then "attempted to land too fast and too high." The airplane bounced twice and veered off the side of the runway into the grass. The airplane nosed over and came to rest inverted, which resulted in substantial damage to the vertical stabilizer and rudder. The pilot reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper recovery from a bounced landing.
