September 4, 2009, Camarillo, Calif., Cessna 195


During the landing roll, with the tail wheel on the ground, the airplane veered to the left. To correct, the pilot applied right rudder and brake. The airplane immediately “turned hard right;” the pilot responded by applying left rudder and brake. Despite the pilots control inputs, the airplane continued veering to the right and the left main landing gear collapsed. Subsequently, the left wingtip contacted the ground, resulting in structural damage to the wing spar.
