Aircraft flight hours:
Upon landing on runway 06, the single engine aircraft bounced twice then veered off runway and came to rest in bushes. Both pilots escaped unhurt while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
The crew completed the landing roll with a tailwind component and the runway was in poor conditions at the time of the accident, which remained a contributing factor.
