The accident occurred during a private VFR flight from a public grass airstrip on the island of Aero
(EKAE) to a private grass airstrip on the island of Endelave (EKEL).
The aircraft made an approach to runway 29 at EKEL.
On final approach to runway 29, the pilot experienced crosswind conditions and moderate turbulence. The pilot observed the final approach speed to be approximately 64 knots.
Just after having passed overhead the threshold to runway 29, the pilot experienced a sudden drop of aircraft lift resulting in a high sink rate. The aircraft made a hard landing.
The aircraft got airborne and flew approximately 55 meters before the second touchdown.
During the ground roll, the pilot for a short while added engine power for initiating an aborted landing, but decided to retard the engine power to idle power for making a full stop. The aircraft heading was approximately 280.
In order to avoid obstacles, the pilot unsuccessfully tried to regain directional control.
For approximately 97 meters, the aircraft continued on heading 280 until it impacted with windbreak trees and a parked runway roller along the runway side.
