Summary

Summary

The pilot said that the touchdown was slightly heavy. The aircraft bounced, and after the second touchdown the pilot retracted the flaps. He said that after a short ground roll, directional control was lost, initiated by nosewheel shimmying. The aircraft ran off the right side of the runway. Directional control was regained but by this time the aircraft was heading some 60` off runway heading, pointing at low sandhills at the boundary of the aerodrome. The pilot attempted a go-around to miss the terrain. The aircraft failed to outclimb the sandhill and came to rest some 370 metres from the strip. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
