A Pacific Professional Flight Center Cessna 172M, was on a local VFR flight to and from Boundary Bay (CZBB), BC as part of the commercial pilot training program. Upon returning, the winds reported at Vancouver International (CYVR), BC at 1100 were 280 degrees true at 22 knots gusting 28 knots. On final approach to Runway 25 for a full stop landing the aircraft was configured with 30 degrees of flaps. While in the flare, the aircraft was observed to veer to the left of the runway. The pilot initiated a go around low near the runway and during the ground, the right wing and nose dropped resulting in the aircraft cartwheeling into the grassy area adjacent the runway.
The pilot extricated himself from the wreckage. ATC called out the Delta / Boundary Bay Airport Fire and Rescue to respond to the accident. A small post impact fire in the engine area was rapidly extinguished. The aircraft sustained significant damage to both wings, cabin, and engine area. The pilot, who was wearing both lapbelt and shoulder harness, suffered only minor injuries. The pilot was taken to hospital for observation.
