At the conclusion of a parachute dropping sortie, the pilot landed the aircraft at the strip in a strong crosswind. During the landing roll the aircraft began to swing to the left and the right gear leg collapsed. The right wing, tailplane and elevator were bent after contacting the ground. The aircraft was one of four operating from the strip, when the wind backed and increased in strength, during the passage of a weak front. The pilot had been aware of the change in wind velocity before attempting the landing.
