NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The pilot initiated a landing on a 1050 foot runway. He said the brakes locked near the end of the landing roll, and the airplane flipped over. A state policeman documented that the airplane first touched down about half way down the runway and that the wheels were locked during the entire landing roll.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

the pilot's misjudgment of speed and distance during the approach/landing, his failure to attain a proper touchdown point during the landing, and his failure to go around (while there was sufficient runway remaining). The short runway was a related factor.
