NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that the airspeed was too fast and he overshot the final approach as he was landing at his private airstrip. The left wing hit a tree and the airplane came to rest inverted in a wooded area. The pilot stated that he was moving the airplane from a friend’s private airstrip to his airstrip at the time of the accident. He had made several approaches to the airstrip, but had not landed this airplane on the airstrip before the accident. The pilot reported there was no mechanical failure/malfunction of the airplane. The airplane received substantial damage to the fuselage and left wing.

NTSB Probable Cause
