Summary

After landing on a claypan, the pilot taxied the aircraft along a track to pick up a passenger. The right mainwheel entered an area of bulldust and the aircraft swung to the right off the track. As the pilot was manoeuvring the aircraft back onto the track the right wing struck a tree. The pilot was attempting to save time by taxying towards the passenger. Forward visibility was impaired as the pilot was looking into the sun and there was glare on the windscreen. The tree struck was the only obstruction in the area.
