Summary

During the course of the day's activities, the pilot had landed at the strip on 24 occasions. The surface was wet and landings had been made with a quartering tailwind. On each occasion the pilot had stopped the aircraft about 100 metres short of a cattle yard at the end of the strip. The pilot was making his first approach after changing operations to another paddock. The aircraft touched down about 100 metres beyond the previous touchdown area. However, the pilot continued with the landing and despite heavy braking he was unable to prevent the aircraft colliding with the fence of the cattle yard. It was reported that while the aircraft was on approach the wind strength increased to about 15 knots.
