On September 4, 2018, about 1226 central daylight time, a Cessna 150F airplane, N8028F, sustained substantial damage after loss of control on landing at the Richland Municipal Airport (MO1), Richland, Missouri. The certified flight instructor (CFI) was seriously injured and the student pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane sustained damage to both wings, the vertical stabilizer and the firewall. The airplane was registered to Taylor Aviation Inc. and operated by the CFI under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91, as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the flight that originated from Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport-Forney Field (TBN), Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, about 1200.

The CFI reported that he and the student pilot were performing touch and go landings on runway 14 at MO1. According to the CFI, the second touch and go "went bad," and subsequently the airplane came to rest upside down along the left side of the runway.

Initial examination of the accident site by an FAA inspector, revealed impact marks on the runway surface consistent with the nose landing gear and a rotating propeller. According to the inspector's notes, the airplane exited the runway about 1,800 ft from the approach end of runway 14 and came to rest inverted about 25 ft from the side of the runway. The flaps were found in the fully extended position.

The airplane was manufactured in 1966 and was equipped with a Continental Motors O-200 series engine. The airplane was registered to the CFI in 2006.

MO1 was situated at an elevation of 1,110 ft above mean sea level. It was equipped with a single paved runway, designated 14/32, which measured 3,000 ft by 60 ft. MO1 was not equipped with an air traffic control tower.

The 1156 TBN automated weather observation, about 17 miles southeast of the accident site, included winds from 160° at 17 knots gusting to 23 knots, visibility 10 miles, and clear skies. The landing runway heading was 140 degrees magnetic.

The pilot of a plane that crashed at Richland Municipal Airport on Tuesday had a heart attack, according to his son.

The pilot's son was on the scene Wednesday morning, and told a reporter that his father had been hospitalized after the crash on Tuesday, where it was determined he had had a heart attack. The son reported his father did not recall anything about the incident. However, it is currently unknown whether the heart attack was the cause of the crash or resulted from the crash.

The pilot was reportedly training a student pilot, doing "touch and go" maneuvers before the crash occurred, according to the pilot's son.

According to FAA records, the plane is owned by Taylor Aviation, Inc., out of Waynesville, Mo. The company's stated business purpose includes training aircraft pilots.

Federal Aviation Administration authorities were set to investigate the crash on Wednesday. The area was restricted from public access on Wednesday due to a fuel leak creating hazardous conditions.

According to the Tri-County Fire Protection District, firefighters responded to the scene of the crash on Tuesday afternoon. There had been two people on the Cessna when it crashed, according to the fire district; the pilot was flown by helicopter to treatment, and the other refused care at the scene. Firefighters cleared the scene by 3 p.m.
