14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Tuesday, September 12, 2017 in Kinsley, KS
Aircraft: CESSNA 210, registration: N9595X

NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

During a telephone interview with the NTSB investigator-in-charge, the pilot reported that, he "landed around 80 knots" and "didn't get the flaps down" before landing. He further reported that, the airplane "didn't want to stop" and it then "ran off the runway." During the runway excursion, the nose wheel collapsed, and the airplane nosed over.

The fuselage, wings, and vertical stabilizer sustained substantial damage. 

The pilot did not report that there were any preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

An automated weather observation station, about the time of the accident, 28 nautical miles west from the accident site, reported wind from 170° at 7 knots. The landing was on runway 36.

The pilot failed to submit the NTSB Form 6120.1 Pilot/ Operator Aircraft Accident/ Incident Report.

A witness reported that he was at the airport in a hangar, and noticed that the accident airplane was "high, fast, and down wind." He added that he observed the airplane overrun the runway and nose over into the grass.

KINSLEY, Kan. (KSNW) – Officials said a small plane went off the runway and overturned Tuesday morning near Kinsley.

According to the man’s granddaughter, who contacted KSN, there was a hole in the runway that caused the tire of the plane to break off, that in turn, caused the plane to flip. The man inside wasn’t injured.

KSN is still awaiting to hear more from authorities.
