Summary

The pilot reported that during the latter part of the landing roll the aircraft ground looped to the left. The right mainplane and right tailplane were bent upward. Inspection of the aircraft revealed that the right maingear had become detached due to the partial shear of the leg attach bolt and nut threads. This was probably due to the abnormally high loads experienced by the bolt when the pre-load ceased to exist.
