On February 11, 2022, about 2006 central standard time, a Mooney M20J, N201VZ, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Katy, Texas. The pilot and passenger sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

A review of archived Federal Aviation Administration automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) data revealed that the airplane departed Castroville Municipal Airport (CVB), Castroville, Texas, about 1827 and was enroute to West Houston Airport (IWS), Katy, Texas. After overflying IWS about 1,075 ft GPS altitude, the airplane turned left on to a downwind leg for landing on runway 15. The airplane turned final about 650 ft and descended until it collided with a tree on a golf course about 600 ft before the approach end of the runway. The airplane came to rest about 500 ft short of the runway and sustained substantial damage to the left wing and empennage.

A detailed wreckage examination is pending.

HOUSTON, Texas – A small aircraft crashed through trees and onto a golf course in west Harris County, according to Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they responded to scene shortly before 7:30 p.m. Friday night where they found the aircraft upside down on a golf course.

According to a tweet sent out by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the aircraft was found at Pine Forest Country Club located in the 18000 block of Clay Road Friday evening.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said there were two people--a man and a woman--were found inside of the damaged aircraft.

Authorities said it took more than an hour to extricate both individuals from the plane. They were airlifted to Houston-area hospitals in stable condition, Texas DPS said.

KPRC 2 Investigates has learned that the tail number on that aircraft is N201VZ, according DPS. According to the FAA, the aircraft is a Mooney M20J 201.

Officials say according to the latest flight records, the plane took off outside of San Antonio around 6:13 p.m. Friday evening. It was scheduled to land at the West Houston airport at 7:25 p.m., but never made it.

Authorities believe the aircraft went through some trees before ending up on the ground.

Investigators from the FAA and NTSB were headed to the scene.
