NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.
The pilot of the tailwheel-equipped biplane reported that, during the landing roll, the biplane started to veer right. He attempted to regain control, but the biplane continued to veer right and ground looped. Subsequently, the bottom of the left wing impacted the ground, and the left main landing gear collapsed.
The biplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.
The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the biplane that would have precluded normal operation.
