Investigation Docket - National Transportation Safety Board:

NTSB Identification: GAA17CA524
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Sunday, September 03, 2017 in Oshkosh, WI
Aircraft: BOEING A75N1(PT17), registration: N52813
Injuries: 1 Minor, 1 Uninjured.

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 the tailwheel-equipped biplane reported that, during the landing roll, about half way down the grass runway, the biplane "very quickly" became upside down. After exiting the biplane, he examined the runway and saw where the propeller had dug in and viewed skid marks in the grass "where it was obvious that the brakes had been applied and locked up." Subsequently, the airplane sustained substantial damage to the vertical and horizontal stabilizer.

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

The automated weather observation system about 1 nautical mile from the accident site reported, about the time of the accident, the wind was 230° at 7 knots, gusting to 14 knots. The pilot landed on runway 31.
