found a photo of 1228 as N6336V at Aviation International archives, poor quality but does show original paint scheme before a 1400 series paint scheme was applied.

The accident was a partial ground loop. The wind was 90 degrees from the right on landing and the aircraft departed the runway to the right. From the pictures of the ground track it looks like the left gear dug into the dirt and caused the aircraft's tail to move quickly to the left resulting in the aircraft contacting the ground on the left wing tip and left stabilizer tip. The left aileron was damaged in the process. There are some wrinkles on some of the skins of the left wing. It looks very fixable.

Jim Metzler just returned from inspecting the aircraft.

Thanks Evan edited accident above.

also received an e-mail

Jim Metzler  and crew is helping out with repairs. Hopes to be back in the air in September. Said a slow speed ground loop with some wind activity. So good news for a change.

I'm glad to hear it was a repairable accident.

Did almost the same thing myself, in a left crosswind. I called it a swerve to the right,
and my gear didn't dig in when I left the runway but right stabilator and wing tip had
some minor scrapes also missed all runway lights.

I contacted the tower because I was on the wrong side of the runway. It took them a
long time to respond, I think there was probably a discussion on whether I should
report an accident.
