Windshear was experienced on short final at Fair Isle Airfield and, consequently, the aircraft’s speed at touchdown was faster than intended. The landing roll continued to the upwind end of the runway, where the pilot attempted a 180º turn but he encountered loose gravel and a sloping surface. The aircraft slid sideways off the prepared surface at low speed, and the right main landing gear partially collapsed, while the right stabilator and the rear fuselage struck the ground.
