Prior to landing on Runway 14, the 418-hour commercial pilot made a low approach over the runway in his tailwheel-equipped single-engine airplane to check the wind conditions, as he was aware that a 14 knot gusting crosswind prevailed from the right side of the runway. After the low pass, the pilot reentered the right downwind for a full-stop landing. On the second approach, the airplane veered to the right after touching down, and after the pilot made corrections, the airplane ground-looped off the left side of the runway. Runway 14 was reported to be 5,002-feet long, by 75-feet wide asphalt runway. Both occupants were able to exit the airplane unassisted.
