Summary

The pilot had completed one circuit involving a touch and go landing and a go around from the second approach. Following the third approach the aircraft touched down then veered to the left as it commenced the landing roll. The pilot was able to arrest the left swing as the aircraft reached the left side of the runway but a swing to the right then developed and resulted in a ground loop. The left main landing gear collapsed and the left wing impacted the ground. The investigation revealed that the pilot had used an incorrect crosswind control technique and then failed to maintain directional control during the landing roll. There were no pre-existing defects with the aircraft which could have contributed to the accident.
