On April 21, 2022, about 1120 Pacific daylight time, a Textron Aviation Cessna T206H, N20617, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Santa Barbara, California. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight.

The pilot reported that while landing on runway 25, the left main landing gear touched down first, followed by the right main landing gear. As the nose wheel settled onto the runway, the airplane immediately veered to the right. Despite the pilot’s control inputs, the airplane veered left and right several times, and both wings struck the ground.

Postaccident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that both wings were substantially damaged, and the nose gear trunnion was fractured.

The airplane was recovered to a secure location pending further examination.
