After a crop spraying flight the AgTruck returned to the airstrip. Low clouds associated with thunderstorm and dust storm had started to accumulate over the spraying area. The weather at the base was getting worse and the wind was from North East as the plane landed on runway 33. After touchdown and rolling, strong gusting wind coming over the canal hit the right wing and the tail section very strongly turning and drifting the aircraft 90 degrees to the right, accordingly the left undercarriage was broken, the left wing hit the ground and was badly damaged. The engine was still running so the pilot shut down the engine and put all the switches off.

Causes: The sudden gusting cross wind during landing
