NTSB Factual Report

According to the student pilot, he was practicing "on point or spot landings". He stated that he "landed too close to the south end of the strip and got the left landing gear caught in a ditch about 8 inches from the top, causing the gear to bend backwards and causing the aircraft to veer to the left. He regained control of the aircraft and stopped." He further stated that he "should have picked a spot further down the runway to practice spot landings." Damage to the airplane consisted of both landing gear and damage to surrounding airframe structure. There were no mechanical problems reported by the pilot.

NTSB Probable Cause

The student's pilot's misjudged distance/altitude that led to an undershoot and a failure to attain the proper touchdown point.
