The aircraft departed the airfield in calm conditions and flew to a point about 35 kilometres to the south-east. On his return the pilot positioned the aircraft to land on runway 09. The aircraft was struck by a strong wind gust which lifted the right wing and caused the aircraft to veer to the left. The pilot was unable to regain directional control before the aircraft collided with a boundary fence. The wind was reported to be variable in direction at five to ten knots. This accident was not the subject of a formal on-scene investigation.
