I was involved in a landing incident at hzd in mckenzie, tn, on apr/xx/96. At the time of landing, WX was clear with good visibility, with a gusty wind out of west. I was making a landing on runway 19, the wind caused me to use the normal crosswind landing technique. However, just before touchdown, a gust caused the right wing to rise then lower very quickly damaging the right landing gear. There were no injuries. NTSB was notified.
