Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

The pilot stated that he was planning to perform an off-airport landing on the shore of a reservoir where he had successfully landed many times before. After an approximate 30-minute flight, the pilot configured the airplane for landing on the shoreline. During touchdown, the passenger, who was positioned in the rear-seat, inadvertently applied the brakes. Because of the brakes being depressed on touchdown, the airplane immediately nosed-over coming to rest inverted.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wing strut.

The pilot reported that there were no preimpact mechanical anomalies with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

JUAB COUNTY, Utah, (Gephardt Daily) — A small plane crashed in Juab County near Mona late Tuesday afternoon and officials said the two men on board were able to walk away uninjured.

The Juab County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened shortly after 4:30 p.m. as the pilot and passenger, both from Nephi, were practicing touch-and-go landings north of Mona Reservoir.

Sheriff Doug Anderson told Gephardt Daily the aircraft was a small bush plane.

It had taken off from Nephi Municipal Airport. When it crashed, it flipped and landed upside-down.

The cause of the crash is as yet unknown. The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and will handle the investigation.
