Location:Hudson, Weld County, CO -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:
Departure airport:Hudson, CO (18V)
Destination airport:Hudson, CO (18V)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that he had completed a banner tow flight and had dropped the banner at its designated location. He subsequently entered the traffic pattern and approached to land with a right crosswind. During the landing roll, the airplane weather-vaned, exited the right side of the runway, and entered soft grass. The airplane nosed over, which resulted in substantial damage to the left upper wing, vertical stabilizer, and rudder. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain directional control of the airplane during the landing roll, which resulted in a runway excursion and nose-over.
