Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
Witnesses observed the airplane in an attempt to land on runway 7. The wind was reported to be from 180 degrees at 15 knots with gusts to 20 knots. Witnesses described the airplane initiating a go-around and immediately turn to the north in a near vertical bank. Witnesses then reported the airplane descended through the roof of a hangar and exit through the rear of the building. Subsequent examination of the airframe and engine failed to reveal any pre-impact anomalies. The landing flaps were found in the 30 degree extended position. CAUSE: the pilot's inadequate compensation for the crosswind condition, his failure to maintain directional control, and his failure not raise the landing flaps during the go-around. The crosswind was a factor.
