The pilot said that several thunderstorms had just passed over the airfield. After he landed, a gust of wind struck the airplane, and it departed the right side of runway 02. He said that the airplane impacted rough terrain, and as a result, the right wing tip was bent and the fuselage fabric was wrinkled.
