On September 10, 2021, about 0940 central daylight time, a Cessna 175 airplane, N9343B, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Hot Springs, South Dakota.

The airplane came to rest upright with the left main landing gear partially separated. The airplane was modified to conventional landing gear through a supplemental type certificate kit in 2013.
