Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Grand Canyon, AZ -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Seligman, AZ (P23)
Destination airport:Grand Canyon, AZ (40G)
Investigating agency: NTSB
During the landing roll the airplane departed the runway to the right and hit a ditch. The Unicom reported winds from the northwest at 10 knots, and runway 01 in use. The pilot overflew the runway, checked the windsock, and entered for left traffic on runway 01. The pilot executed a go-around because of the wind. He came around for another attempt. As the left main wheel touched down, a gust of wind pushed the airplane off of the right side of the runway into rough terrain. The airplane collided with a rocky ditch, and nosed over.
Probable Cause: the pilot's inadequate compensation for crosswind conditions, which resulted in a loss of directional control.
