Aviation Accident Summary CEN21LA344

Oshkosh, WI, USA

Aircraft #1




The pilot reported that during landing on a grass runway, the airplane first bounced about 5 ft high, then bounced a few more times as it neared the end of the runway. The pilot added that he did not have enough remaining runway to complete a go-around, so he applied the brakes, but they did not work. The airplane continued off the end of the runway and impacted a small ditch and sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and engine mount. A postaccident examination of the brake system revealed no mechanical malfunctions or anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The pilot’s improper landing flare which resulted in a bounced landing, a loss of control, and runway excursion.
