WPR11CA100

The pilot set up for a three-point landing, and touched down with a slight bounce, but he felt like the airplane stabilized as he continued the landing rollout. The airplane then veered to the left, and he was unable to correct with rudder and aileron inputs. He applied power, but realized immediately that the addition of power would not help at this point. He pulled the power, stepped on the brakes, and applied maximum right rudder pedal. This resulted in the airplane pivoting to the right, and the right landing gear shearing off. The pilot felt that this was due to excessive side load. The airplane contacted a runway sign, and came to rest facing the runway with the right wing tip on the ground. The airframe and right wing sustained substantial damage.
