CICUMSTANCES The pilot and his passengers were touring in the north-west of Australia. For a number of landings after the DEPARTURE from Parafield the aircraft displayed a tendency to veer to the left side of the runway. The aircraft was checked by a licenced aircraft maintenance engineer and no defects were found. However, the pilot continued to experience the same problem. For the landing at Erong Springs, the aircraft was landed with a slight crosswind from the left. Shortly after the nosewheel was gently lowered onto the runway, the aircraft once again veered to the left. The pilot did not regain control of the aircraft, which ran off the runway and collided with a tree. A thorough inspection was made of the aircraft following the accident but no fault could be found that may have affected the landing performance. The reason for the aircraft diverging to the left during the landing roll could not be determined.
