Summary

The aircraft arrived at the country airstrip ten minutes after first light. The pilot reported that there were no signs of animals in the area, but that during the subsequent landing roll a kangaroo jumped out in front of the aircraft. The animal collided with the left mainwheel which collapsed causing the left propeller to strike the ground and the aircraft to veer to the left. The aircraft ran off the strip into a ditch, tearing off the nosewheel. Neither occupant of the aircraft received injuries.
