Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported being cleared to land by air traffic control and reported being cautioned of wake turbulence by an airplane that landed ahead in sequence. The pilot aimed to touchdown at a point beyond the presence of the wake turbulence. The airplane encountered light turbulence prior to landing and contacted the runway misaligned with the runway centerline. The pilot applied opposite input correction which produced a roll force resulting in the right wing contacting the ground, substantially damaging the airplane. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause: The pilot's loss of directional control during landing after encountering wake turbulence.
