The airplane sustained substantial damage when it collided with the ground along the edge of a runway during final approach. The accident occurred at about 1030 Pacific time. The Commercial pilot received fatal injuries; visual conditions prevailed. Witnesses said the airplane veered to the right and nosed down, colliding with the ground about 100 feet to the right, and about 850 feet past the approach end of the runway. The airplane bounced, coming to rest within about 50 feet of the initial impact point, and about 45 degrees to the right of the runway heading.
