Accident occurred Thursday, August 04, 2016 in Bivalve, MD
Probable Cause Approval Date: 09/12/2016

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 commercial pilot reported that while landing on his private airstrip he "misjudged the approach airspeed" and after touchdown the airplane was unable to stop before the end of the runway. The pilot further reported that the airplane exited the runway and impacted a ditch with small trees and bushes, which resulted in a nose gear and left main landing gear collapse, and a nose down. The airplane subsequently sustained substantial damage to the left wing and left aileron.

The pilot reported that there were no pre impact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's excessive airspeed during landing, which resulted in a runway overrun, and impact with a ditch.
