Narrative:
The aircraft was on a VFR flight from Seminole Lake, FL (U.S.A.) to Toronto (Buttonville) Municipal Airport (CYKZ). During the roll-out after a crosswind landing, the aircraft´s right wing touched the runway, grazing the paint and some rivets on the underside of the wing tip and the right aileron outer tip trailing edge. The plane was inspected and determined to be airworthy for the remaining leg back to Toronto (Buttonville) Municipal Airport. A detailed inspection on arrival revealed a small bend in the outer wing rib and a small crack in the outer aileron rib along with some damage to the right wheel outer half. The accident occurred in strong, variable wind conditions (varying 60 degrees and gusting from 10 knots up to 25 knots).
