Narrative:The pilot departed just after morning civil twilight (MCT) for a short ferry flight to a local farm airstrip. The environment was still very dark due to cloudy conditions as the aircraft flew around and surveyed the area. The pilot identified what he thought were wheel marks from the previous day and lined up on them. Unfortunately, the marks were not wheel marks and soon after landing the aircraft collided with a fence line which sheared off the left outer wing before the aircraft slew around and came to a stop. Major damage was caused to the aircraft but neither occupant was injured. The operator's investigation concluded that the "inexperienced pilot's decision to depart immediately after MCT on an overcast dark morning, while legal, was not the best decision given the prevailing dark lighting conditions".
