During the landing flare, the pilot experienced a sudden change in wind speed and direction, causing the aircraft to roll right and drift toward the right edge of the sealed runway. The pilot unsuccessfully attempted to correct the situation and the aircraft landed heavily on the right wheel. He then applied full power to conduct a go-around but the aircraft veered further right and the right landing gear separated.
