Aviation Accident Factual Report - National Transportation Safety Board:

NTSB Identification: GAA17CA523
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Thursday, September 07, 2017 in Redgranite, WI
Aircraft: TAYLORCRAFT BC12, registration: N95356
Injuries: 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 airplane reported that, during the landing roll as the tail settled onto the grass airstrip, the airplane veered to the left. He added that he applied right rudder and brake inputs, but the left wing exited the airstrip and struck farm equipment, which caused the airplane to rotate counter-clockwise before coming to rest.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the both wings and the right wing lift strut.

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