Defining Event: Loss of control on ground

The pilot reported that, during landing, shortly after touchdown, the airplane "wheelbarrowed" and veered left. Upon reaching the end of the runway, he pulled back on the yoke, but the airplane exited the runway, impacted a berm, and nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the empennage. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's improper landing flare during landing in a gusting, right quartering tailwind, which resulted in the airplane wheel barrowing and a subsequent runway overrun, impact with terrain, and noseover.
