The pilot said he landed on the farm airstrip and was rolling out when a wing contacted a guy wire from a nearby power pole. The wire contact caused the aircraft to veer off the runway, collide with a ditch and nose over onto its back. According to the FAA airport master record file for the landing strip, it is a private use facility with one gravel surfaced runway. A set of 50 foot tall power lines and poles run parallel to the runway at a distance of 50 feet from the runway surface edge.
