Investigating agency: AAIU Belgium
The airplane came back from an exhibition at Ursel (EBUL) for a landing on Runway 03 at EBZW. On the moment the tail wheel touched the ground during landing, the airplane turned to the left and ran off the runway. It continued and frontally hit the doors of a hangar.
The shock to the doors caused some elements of the door to collapse and fall on parked aircraft, causing additional damage to a Cirrus SR20 and a Piper PA34 Seneca. There were no injuries.

The accident was caused by a loss of control during the landing run due to the inadvertent pilot action on the rudder pedals. The deviation of the airplane caused the initiation of the conditions for a ground loop
