Summary

The pilot was making a downwind approach to land in a farm paddock when, at a height of approximately 10 ft above the ground, the aircraft was observed to begin a go-around. During the initial climb, over rising ground, the aircraft failed to clear a 25 metre high tree. The aircraft was significantly damaged by the collision with the tree and subsequently crashed into a farm dam.

The landing gear and flaps were still extended at the time of the collision. The tailwind was reported to be approximately 15 knots. The ground sloped up at approximately 2 degrees from the go-around point.
