Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated from the Colusa County Airport (O08), Colusa, at an unknown time.

A representative from the operator reported that the pilot was finished fertilizing a field when the airplane's engine started to run rough and lose complete power. The pilot attempted to land at a nearby private landing strip, however, the airplane landed short in a rice field and came to rest inverted.

The airplane has been recovered to a secure location for further examination.

Aircraft: Cessna 180
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of control on ground
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

According to the pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane, he circled the airport to check the wind direction and speed, and then he initiated a final approach about 70 knots with 3 notches of flaps.

He reported that the airplane encountered a wind gust prior to initiating the landing flare. Upon touchdown of the wheel landing the airplane bounced and he applied forward yoke pressure.

The airplane began to drift to the right of the runway center line during the landing roll and he applied left rudder and left aileron to counter the drift, but when the tailwheel touched down, the airplane veered to the left.

He applied right rudder and right brake, but the right main landing gear collapsed, the left wing lifted, and the right wing struck the ground. The airplane exited the left side of the runway and it came to rest in the grass safety area.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to right wing spar.

The pilot reported that about the time of the accident, the wind was from the west-southwest, about 7 knots. The pilot landed on runway 32.

The METAR at the accident airport reported that about the time of the accident, the wind was calm, and the skies were clear.

The pilot reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

There were no reported injuries after a plane ran off the runway at the North Myrtle Beach airport Monday morning.


At about 11 a.m., emergency crews responded to the Grand Strand Airport for reports of a crash. North Myrtle Spokesman Pat Dowling said a biplane ran off the runway, possibly due to a landing gear problem.


The plane is used to fly tourists around the beach area. Two passengers and a pilot were on board when it went off the runway. There were no reported injuries.


Tina Farley lives near the airport and said she didn't hear a loud crash. She only noticed there was activity at the airport when fire crews passed. Other neighbors said they haven't seen a crash in years of living nearby. 

The red biplane sat on the runway with one of its wings tilted into a ditch as emergency crews worked the scene. A small crowd gathered along the fence of the airport after they heard reports of the crash.


Representatives for the plane company did not respond to requests for comment after the crash.

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – North Myrtle Beach officials say emergency crews responded to reports of a plane crash Monday morning.

According to city spokesperson Pat Dowling, a small plane ran off the runway shortly after 11 a.m at Grand Strand Airport, which is located off of Highway 17 at 2800 Terminal Street. Dowling says the plane was carrying the pilot and two passengers. No injuries were reported.

While the exact cause of the crash is unknown, it appears the landing gear may have malfunctioned, Dowling adds.

Kirk Lovell, director of air service and business development with Horry County, says the Grand Strand Airport is closed until the FAA reopens it. Lovell adds that airplane is based out of the Grand Strand Airport.

It's unclear at this time if the plane was attempting to take off or land when the landing gear failed.

OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Two of Allegiant Air's planes were damaged after an incident at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) early Monday morning.

According to Kathleen Bergen with the Federal Aviation Administration, around 1 a.m. Monday, Allegiant Air 1913 was pulling into a gate at VPS when it made contact with Allegiant Air 1927, which was parked at a nearby gate.

The Federal Aviation Administration says no one was onboard Allegiant 1927 when the incident took place. They say preliminary information shows a wingtip on Allegiant 1913 and the elevator and tail of Allegiant 1927 were damaged.

An investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration continues.

Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration also says its investigating another incident at VPS involving Allegiant Air 1991. We're told this incident took place around 1:35 p.m. on July 5th.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane landed on Runway 19, rolled off the side of the runway, then back onto the runway. They say the aircraft then taxied to the gate and passengers exited the aircraft normally. The flight originated at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.

Story and video ➤ http://www.wjhg.com

VALPARAISO — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a pair of incidents involving airplanes at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) last week and Monday morning.

The FAA told the Daily News on Monday that it was investigating an incident that occurred July 5 at 1:35 p.m. involving Allegiant Air 1991, which originated from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the Airbus A320 aircraft landed on Runway 19, rolled off the side of the runway then back onto the runway. The aircraft then taxied to the gate and passengers exited the aircraft normally.

In a separate incident that occurred Monday morning at 1 a.m., Allegiant Air 1913, an Airbus A320 arriving from Springfield, Missouri, was pulling into a gate at VPS when it “made contact” with Allegiant Air 1927, also an Airbus A320, which was parked at a nearby gate.

No one was on board Allegiant 1927 when the event occurred, the FAA said. An FAA spokesman was unsure of the number of people on board Allegiant 1913.
