A Lockheed Hercules transport airplane, N906SJ, dragged its tail during landing at Nixon Fork Mine, Alaska. The airplane received substantial damage.
Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a visual flight rules flight plan was filed on the cargo flight from Anchorage.
The airplane was landing on runway 35 at Nixon Fork Mine and the approach was over a 60 foot high hill. The hill is situated at the threshold of runway 35. The pilot likely attempted to arrest the sink rate by increasing the landing flare. The airplane, N906SJ, is 18 feet longer than the other Hercules aircraft in the operator's fleet.

Probable Cause:

Failure of the pilot-in-command to assure the airplane was adequately flared for landing.
