Summary

The pilot reported that, on a ferry flight back to Hyden from Northam, following a .37 periodic maintenance inspection, he encountered fog ahead along track. As a precautinary measure, the pilot decided to land in a paddock to wait for the fog to clear. He made several passes over the paddock to ensure it was suitable before attempting to land. As the aircraft touched down, the right main wheel struck a rock, hidden in grass, causing the right oleo to collapse from overload.
