C-182 Non-Fatal Jeanerette, LA Sept. 12, 1999

The pilot reported that after takeoff he saw an approaching thunderstorm and returned to the airport to land on runway 21. The pilot stated that when he arrived at the airport there was a 90-degree crosswind. He estimated that the wind was 120 degrees at 25 knots, with 5-10 knot gusts. The pilot further reported that as the airplane touched down, ‘a gust of wind kept the wheels from settling so I could not brake effectively,’ and the aircraft ran off the end of the 3,000-foot-long runway and impacted a fence and a ditch.
