Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that, while practicing landings, he completed one go-around and two landings without incident. On his next landing attempt, the airplane encountered a left crosswind during the landing flare. Despite his attempts to maintain directional control, the airplane ground looped and veered off the left side of the runway. The right wing sustained substantial damage. 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 while landing in crosswind conditions, which resulted in a ground-loop.
