On May 29, 2022, about 1015 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 150F airplane, N8919S, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at the Jacksonville Executive Airport (CRG), Jacksonville, Florida. The private pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that he planned to remain in the traffic pattern for touch-and-go landings practice. The pilot completed the first landing of the flight and after an uneventful landing roll, he added full power for takeoff. Subsequently, while raising the flaps from 30°, the airplane “started pulling very hard to the left.” The pilot attempted to correct with full right rudder and right brake, but the airplane continued off the runway into grass. The pilot reduced power to idle during the runway excursion, but he remained unable to control the direction of the airplane and it nosed over. The wings, fuselage, and vertical stabilizer sustained substantial

According to the Federal Aviation Administration inspector who examined the airplane, the left steering connecting rod had fractured at its connection point on the nose landing gear (NLG). The right steering connecting rod remained connected and the NLG sustained little to no damage. The NLG was found in a left turning position and could not be moved by hand in any direction. Figure 1 shows the left steering connecting rod fracture areas and a Cessna Illustrated Parts Catalog drawing.

The airplane was retained for further examination.
