Category:Accident
Location:McCall, ID -   United States of America
Phase: Unknown
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Joseph, OR (453)
Destination airport:McCall, ID (MYL)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that he was landing behind an aircraft on the airport taxiway parallel to runway 34 due to a runway closure. The airplane landed hard causing the airplane to bounce at which point the pilot, realizing he was too close to the aircraft in front of him, added power to go around. The airplane lifted off in a left climbing turn over the runway, stalled and subsequently descended into a grassy field. During the landing roll, the airplane hit an irrigation ditch causing the right landing gear to collapse and the airplane to ground loop. The aircraft sustained damage to its right wing, horizontal stabilizer and right landing gear. The pilot reported no pre-impact mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal flight.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain adequate airspeed that resulted in a stall/mush. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's failure to maintain an adequate spacing from the aircraft ahead of him.
