Accidents and incidents[edit]

  • 24 October 1992: A Cessna 150M, registration number N7878U, impacted terrain in a nose-down attitude after the pilot lost control during an abrupt turn to the left to dodge an unidentified runway obstruction on landing. The pilot could not recall the nature of the obstruction due to head injuries sustained in the crash. The aircraft was destroyed and the pilot and sole occupant was seriously injured. The accident was attributed to "The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control and the inadvertent stall. A factor was the pilot's evasive maneuver to avoid an undetermined object."[5]
