The private pilot and passenger received minor injuries during the accident. The aircraft was substantially damaged. The 14 CFR 91
flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The flight originated from Kewanee, Illinois at 1515 enroute to 79C.
The pilot reported that while on short final he thought he was "a bit high and slow for landing so I applied full throttle to make a Go-Around. Upon this rapid application of power the nose of the aircraft rose and the aircraft turned to the left and made ground contact with the left wing."
The wreckage was removed to Wittman Field in Oshkosh, Wisconsin where the NTSB Investigator in Charge inspected the wreckage. No preimpact anomalies associated with either the airframe or engine were found.
