The Cessna 182Q pilot reported that after landing in Braggadocio, Mo., with an eight mph crosswind, his left foot became lodged under a rudder pedal.
The plane drifted off the runway pavement. He was unable to correct because of the soft turf condition.
The nose landing gear subsequently dug into the ground and the plane nosed over.
The plane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, left wing, and vertical stabilizer.
The NTSB determined the probable cause as the pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during landing rollout, which resulted in a runway excursion and the airplane nosing over.
NTSB Identification: CEN14CA040
