Aviation Accident Summary CEN22LA099

Wahoo, NE, USA

Aircraft #1




The pilot reported that during the last landing he felt that the left wing was too high, even with the right crosswind. He overcorrected, the airplane floated, and then the left wing was too low. The pilot added power to go around, but the airplane veered to the left and went off of the runway and into a corn field. The landing gear collapsed, and the airplane came to rest on its belly which resulted in substantial damage to the fuselage, the left wing, and the right horizontal stabilizer. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during the landing.
