NTSB Factual Report

The airplane was substantially damaged during landing. The pilot reported that upon landing the airplane veered to the left and he was unable to correct with rudder input. He reported that the airplane was heading toward the side of the runway and he applied right brake in an attempt to keep the airplane from going off of the runway. He reported that the left main wheel went off of the runway but the right main wheel did not exit the paved surface. The airplane came to rest near the runway centerline. The pilot reported that he had performed 2 landings prior to the accident landing with no discrepancies noted. Examination of the airplane subsequent to the accident revealed that the fuselage where the tailwheel mounted was damaged.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing which resulted in an overload of the tailwheel attachment structure in the fuselage.
