On June 30, 2014, about 2032 mountain daylight time, an experimental amateur built BMW Hoffman Airtrike, N190DH, sustained substantial damage when it struck terrain during landing on runway 13 at Payette Municipal Airport (S75) Payette, Idaho. The airtrike was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91. The student pilot, sole occupant of the airtrike, sustained minor injuries. The airtrike sustained substantial damage to the wings and fuselage during the accident sequence. The local personal flight departed S75 at an undetermined time. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.

Witnesses located near the accident site reported observing that just prior to the landing, the airtrike's left wing dropped and struck the ground. Subsequently, the airtrike cartwheeled and came to rest inverted.

Post accident examination of the airtrike by a Federal Aviation Administration Inspector revealed that the wing assembly and fuselage were damaged.
