Aircraft: Cessna 182. Injuries: None. Location: Bellview, Texas. Aircraft damage: Substantial.
What reportedly happened: Before setting up to practice touch-and-go landings, the pilot overflew the airport, checked the windsock, and verified the wind was from the south at 10 knots. He entered the traffic pattern for a landing on runway 15.
During the first approach, the plane was too high and the pilot executed a go-around.
On the second approach he landed, then realized the ground speed was higher than normal. He applied the brakes but was unable to stop before coming to the end of the runway.
The airplane went into a field and the nose landing gear collided with a fence, which resulted in substantial damage to the fuselage.
Two pilot-rated witnesses observed the landing and noted that the wind reversed direction while the pilot was on the second approach and landing attempt.
Probable cause: The pilot’s inadequate compensation for a sudden wind shift during the approach and landing, which resulted in a runway overrun.
