Owner/operator:Private
Registration: N6370T
C/n / msn: R18201999
Fatalities:Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 1
Aircraft damage: Substantial
Category:Accident
Location:Lago Vista-Rusty Allen Airport (RYW/KRYW), Lago Vista, TX -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Fredericksburg, TX (T82)
Destination airport:Lago Vista, TX (RYW)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot stated that she entered the traffic pattern for runway 15, and established a stabilized approach with the airplane configured for landing. She reported that the airplane touched down in the runway landing zone; however, the airplane bounced and she added engine power in order to stabilize the airplane. At that time, the airplane encountered a gust of wind which resulted in the left main landing gear departing the runway pavement. The pilot noted that she added full engine power to initiate a go-around, and the airplane pitched up due to the added power and the pitch trim positioned for landing approach. She attempted to reduce the flap deflection to 10 degrees; however, the flaps may have been raised completely contributing to an inadvertent aerodynamic stall at a low altitude. The pilot noted that there were no malfunctions or failures associated with the airplane prior to the accident. She commented that due to the local terrain it is common to experience some turbulence on approach to runway 15. She reported that the wind was from 170 degrees at 6 knots, with moderate turbulence. Wind conditions recorded at local airports were southerly at 10 to 13 knots, with gusts to 17 knots.
Probable Cause: The pilotís inadequate recovery from a bounced landing in crosswind conditions, and an inadvertent aerodynamic stall during the subsequent go-around attempt.
