Probable Cause Approval Date: 05/15/2017

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.

A witness reported that he observed the airplane lift off and fly low over the length of the runway several times before it entered the traffic pattern to land. The airplane approached the runway normally; however, it touched down about halfway down the runway at a high rate of speed. Toward the end of the runway, the airplane turned sharply and exited the runway surface. The airplane went down an embankment and abruptly came to rest at the bottom, which substantially damaged the firewall and right wing. The pilot did not report any anomalies with the airframe or engine.
