Confidence Rating: Information verified through data from accident investigation authorities
A Piper PA-28-181 Archer III slid into the runway end fence after landing on Runway 23 at Raglan Airfield (RAG/NZRA).
On landing the aircraft slid on damp grass and came to a halt with the port wing through the end fence at the corner of the airfield (off the centreline). The aircraft's approach was normal; the aircraft floated for a bit between the flare and touchdow n point, but by then the pilot was committed to landing as a go-around was not possible by the end of the float. The pilot acknowledged that they need to be more respectful of wet grass and that an early go-around decision point may have helped.
