The pilot was returning to Wanaka after having been out of the area for several hours. The wind had increased in both strength and gustiness in his absence. The aeroplane was landing on the grass adjacent to runway 29 when a severe gust of wind lifted it sideways. It clipped the fence parallel to the runway, slewed through 90 degrees, struck the ground with its left wing tip, and cartwheeled on to its nose.
