Location:Bardstown, KY -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Bardstown, KY (BRY)
Destination airport:Hensel Field, KY (NONE)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot circled the field twice and then prepared for a landing to the south, with full flaps. He flew as close as possible to the trees during the final approach and then performed a "slip" to lose altitude. As the airplane touched down half-way down the 2,500 foot-long turf runway, the pilot retracted the flaps and applied maximum braking. The pilot stated that he "lost directional control" during the landing rollout, the airplane ran off the left side of the runway, and spun 180-degrees. During the runway excursion, the airplane impacted a knoll, which substantially damaged both wings. The pilot reported no mechanical deficiencies with the airplane.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to attain the proper touchdown point, and his failure to maintain directional control during landing.
