Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Heber City Municipal Airport (36U), Heber City, Utah -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Salt Lake City, UT (SLC)
Destination airport:Heber City, UT (36U)
Investigating agency: NTSB
The pilot said he landed "smoothly" on runway 3. The tail wheel bounced slightly and the airplane became airborne and drifted to the left of runway centerline. He added power to make abort the landing. The airplane settled back onto the runway, then veered off the left side. It struck the airport boundary fence, rolled into a ditch, and nosed over. The vertical stabilizer was crushed, and the wing rear carry-through spar was bent.
Probable Cause: the pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control during the aborted landing. Contributing factors were the pilot's failure to maintain runway alignment, the fence, and the ditch.
