The pilot elected to land with about an eight knot crosswind component from the right. The surface of
the landing area was stoney and some stones and small rocks had been cleared and placed in a heap to
the left of the chosen landing path. Towards the end of the landing roll, the pilot turned the aircraft to
the right to avoid this heap of stones and, during an attempt to straighten the aircraft following this
manoeuvre, the nosewheel yoke broke. The propeller and left wing tip then struck the ground.
Examination of the nosewheel yoke indicated that it failed as a result of an overload to the right hand
side of the wheel.
