Georgetown, TX, USA

Aircraft #1

Over the runway numbers, the pilot slowed the airplane to 55 KIAS and began a landing flare. The pilot said he thought the three-point landing was good, but the airplane made a hard-left turn. The airplane departed the left side of the runway into soft turf. The right wing struck terrain and the airplane nosed over resulting in substantial damage. The pilot reported there was no mechanical malfunction/failure with the airplane.
