On July 11, 2017, about 1600 mountain daylight time, a Cessna A185E, N185LC, sustained substantial damage after a loss of directional control during the landing roll at Nampa Municipal Airport, Nampa, Idaho. The airline transport pilot was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the cross-country flight. The flight departed from an unknown destination at an undetermined time.

According to the pilot, he was unable to maintain directional control of the tail-wheeled airplane during the crosswind landing due to the rudder potentially binding. Subsequently, the airplane ground looped and the airplane's left wing sustained substantial damage.

The airplane was recovered to a secure storage facility for further examination.
