Narrative:
The crew were experiencing problems with the survey equipment and decided to land at Bencubbin to investigate. As the aircraft touched down at about 80 knots, it was hit by a wind gust from behind, causing it to land heavily and bounce. The pilot initiated a go-around, but with the loss of airspeed associated with the initial bounce and an increasing tailwind component, the aircraft continued to run along the upsloping gravel surface. The go-around was then aborted with consideration of powerlines at the end of the strip. The aircraft overshot the end of the runway and came to rest in adjoining scrub.
