During the landing roll, the right landing gear steel fitting welds broke, and the axle, brake, wheel, and wheel fairing separated from the airplane. The right landing gear strut dug into the sod and the airplane cartwheeled, coming to rest inverted in the center of the runway. The left wing separated from the airplane, and the vertical and horizontal stabilizers were crushed. No other anomalies were found that would have precluded normal operation of the airplane.

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

Failure of the steel weld fittings on the right main landing gear.
