Accident

The aircraft was returning to Camden from Corowa with an intermediate stop at Marulan ALA. Two precautionary circuits were flown prior to landing. During the final approach to the upward sloping strip the pilot reported the landing flare was high and the subsequent touchdown heavier than normal. The right main landing gear collapsed immediately and the aircraft ground looped before coming to rest facing the opposite direction.
