During a telephone interview with a National Transportation Safety Board investigator, the pilot reported that while on final approach to the destination airport he noted that the airplane was configured about 20 knots too fast. He further noted that he overcorrected for an 8- to 10-knot crosswind with the addition of too much rudder deflection. After touchdown, the airplane veered off the right side of the runway, collapsing the nose landing gear and substantially damaging the fuselage undercarriage. The pilot stated that there were no pre impact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airframe or engine. Use your browsers 'back' function to return to synopsisReturn to Query Page
