March 1, 2008, Tucson, Ariz., Great Lakes 2T-1A-2


Upon arrival at the destination airport, the pilot noted the windsock appeared to favor Runway 19. The pilot reported that the approach was made with the airplane configured in a slip to compensate for the crosswind. As the airplane touched down, there was a slight bounce. During the landing rollout, the airplane began to veer to the right. The pilot applied left rudder to correct the heading; however, the airplane continued off the runway and hit a culvert with a rock facing.

The left main landing gear was sheared off and the airplane came to rest inverted. The winds were reported to be from 280 degrees at four knots.
