AFTER A CROSS COUNTRY FLIGHT, THE AIRCRAFT APPROACHED A 1900 FOOT LANDING STRIP FOR LANDING. AFTER A FLY-OVER TO CHECK THE AREA, AN APPROACH TO LAND ENDED IN A GO-AROUND. ON THE SECOND APPROACH, THE PILOT WAS HIGH AND FAST. HE SLIPPED THE AIRCRAFT TO LOSE ALTITUDE, LOWERED FULL FLAPS, BUT WAS STILL MAINTAINING ABOUT 80 MPH AT THRESHOLD. THE AIRCRAFT FLOATED IN THE ALMOST CALM AIR, SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET DOWN THE RUNWAY. THE PILOT WAS READY TO ABORT THE LANDING WHEN THE WHEELS TOUCHED DOWN, SO HE APPLIED BRAKES, BUT COULD NOT STOP BEFORE LEAVING THE END OF THE RUNWAY. SUBSEQUENTLY, THE AIRCRAFT COLLIDED WITH A FENCE AND TREES.
