On July 7, 2016, about 2030 central daylight time, a Cessna 152 airplane, N5331B, was damaged during a landing at the Bridgeport Municipal Airport (KXBP), Bridgeport, Texas. The private rated pilot and pilot rated passenger were not injured and the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to US Aviation Group LLC and was operated by a private individual under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which operated without a flight plan. The flight originated from Denton Enterprise Airport (KDTO), Denton, Texas, about 1945.

According to the pilot, on the third touch-and-go to runway 18 at KXBP, the ground run was longer and the airplane had difficultly climbing away from the runway. He noticed the flaps were still at 30-degrees despite the flap handle being in the up position. The pilot made a 180-degree turn to land on runway 36. After the airplane landed the pilot applied the brakes, the airplane swerved and exited the side of the runway. The nose wheel dug in the soil and the airplane nosed over coming to rest inverted.

The airplane was retained for further examination.
