Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot of the tailwheel equipped airplane reported that, during the approach into an airstrip with a short, upslope runway, he intentionally carried more airspeed for the purpose of having "energy to flare". During the flare, the airplane did not touchdown immediately, and when the airplane did touchdown, about 300 ft of runway remained. The airplane crested the top of the hill and the pilot applied additional braking action which resulted in the tail lifting. The airplane subsequently nosed over and came to rest inverted.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing and rudder.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
