Destination airport:Private Property, North of Drake Village, NSW
Narrative:
The aircraft was landing on a property driveway with the owner’s consent on a popular landing site in the area with a flying group. Numerous aircraft had landed there that day, including an RV4 that the Faeta NG was in company with, that landed immediately before it. The touchdown and roll was normal for those conditions and the pilot was on the brakes when the aircraft yawed violently to the right and the left wingtip hit the ground as a result. The sharp turn also resulted in the nose wheel being bent at 90 degrees to the right as a result of the sudden yaw. The left wing hitting the ground yawed the aircraft back to the original direction of travel and the propeller struck the ground fairly gently as the engine was at full idle and stopped the engine, losing approximately 150mm of propeller tip of each of the 2 blades.
