The pilot planned a flight from Bankstown to Wollongong and return with landings at Sydney and Camden en route. The aircraft touched down in an open grassed area 500 feet beyond the airport fence and slightly to the left of the extended centre line of the runway. The nose landing gear was torn off as the aircraft ran across a ditch 30 feet after touching down. The aircraft slewed to the left through 150 degrees, both main landing gears collapsed, and the aircraft came to rest in a level attitude 114 feet from the point of touchdown.
