As I was approaching to land to ellington field, tower had given me runway 17R to land on and as best as I can recall, they stated the winds at 120 degree/10 KTS. As I landed on runway 17R I believe a sudden gust of wind which I was not expecting blew the aircraft off the runway and the aircraft was damaged.
