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 reported that he made one pass over the runway, but was too high and too fast, so he performed a go-around. He stated that on the second approach, he touched down just beyond the numbers about 90 mph. He applied the brakes but the aircraft continued off the end of the runway about 30 mph. The nose gear broke off and the aircraft flipped over and came to rest inverted. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunction with the aircraft prior to the accident. He further reported that he should have used flaps for the landing and landed at a slower speed.

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

The failure of the pilot to maintain control of the aircraft on the landing roll. A factor is the pilot's neglect to lower the flaps and reduce his speed prior to landing.
