2012 C-182 Loss of Aircraft Control NJ Non-Fatal Non-Fatal Single-Engine Sussex

C-182A Non-Fatal Sussex, NJ June 28, 2012

The pilot reported that, during the final leg of the approach, the airplane was above the
intended approach path and speed. Over the threshold of the runway, the airplane encountered
a gust of wind. The pilot announced on the common traffic advisory frequency his intention to
perform a go-around maneuver. He was unable to perform the maneuver prior to the hard
landing; he then proceeded to overrun the runway and the airplane nosed over, which resulted
in substantial damage to the left wing. The pilot reported that there were no mechanical
malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The
recorded wind at the airport about the time of the accident was variable at 4 knots and for the
hour before and an hour after the accident the wind was recorded as calm.
