The pilot and two passengers departed on a cross-country flight. As they approached their destination airport, the pilot monitored the airport’s automated weather reporting station. The pilot stated the airport’s wind condition changed from 160 degrees at 7 knots, to 200 degrees at 9 knots, and then to 180 degrees at 8 knots, as they got closer to the airport. The pilot added that he made his initial approach to runway 26, but upon circling the airport, the windsock favored runway 8. During the landing roll, the airplane’s right wing lifted. The pilot stated he was unable to lower the wing, the airplane veered right, and continued off the side of runway 8. The airplane came rest in the grass, with substantial damage to the fuselage, just forward of the empennage. The pilot did not report any mechanical problems with the airplane.
