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 pilot of a tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that, during a right turn from the runway to the taxiway, he “exited too fast,” and the airplane ground looped to the right. He added that he taxied the airplane to the ramp without further incident.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

A review of recorded data from the automated weather observation station located on the airport reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 050° at 7 knots. The airplane landed on runway 21L.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot’s use of excessive speed during a right turn from the runway to the taxiway, which resulted in a loss of directional control.
