On landing the aircraft did not decelerate as expected. To avoid overrunning the runway into the sea, the pilot groundlooped the plane to the left. The right undercarriage collapsed as a result.

OPINION: "The accident resulted from lack of knowledge of aerodrome runway characteristics on the part of the captain combined with a down-wind component which was difficult to determine without adequate wind indication on the ground."
