Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot stated, during approach he encountered rough air. He noted the windsock was swinging from side to side. He decided to make a three-point landing, in order to have more control of the airplane on the runway. During the flare the tail wheel touched first, and the airplane ballooned slightly. A wind gust hit the right wing, which veered the plane to the left. He saw a number of people standing in the Windsock Park next to runway. His concern was to avoid the group of observers. He added some power to gain rudder control and corrected to the right. The right wing tip touched the runway, which jammed the controls. At that point, control of the airplane was lost. The airplane skidded off the left side of the runway, shearing both main landing gears and impacting trees before coming to a stop.
Probable Cause: Pilot's failure to maintain directional control in a variable wind condition during landing resulting in the airplane departing the runway subsequent landing gear separation and impact with trees.
