The 5,217-hour pilot stated that on final approach to runway 17, he encountered a downdraft which caused the airplane to descend more rapidly than normal. The landing gear impacted a barbed wire fence, and the airplane landed approximately 7-feet short of the runway. Runway 17 was reported to be 3,200 feet long by 40 feet wide.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control while on final approach. A factor was the downdraft.
