WPR11CA007

The pilot reported that he elected to land in a recently mowed 1,200 foot long field at his parent's farm. He stated that he overflew some nearby ponds to check for wind, of which there appeared to be none. He then decided to land to the north since the field sloped uphill in that direction. During the landing sequence, the pilot stated that he touched down long, and then applied the brakes with such force that the airplane nosed over onto its back, substantially damaging both the fuselage and the left wing. After exiting the airplane, the pilot noted that there was an intermittent wind blowing from the south. The pilot reported no mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane at the time of the accident.
