AIRCRAFT 1 PRELIMINARY REPORT


On June 23, 2000, about 1100 Alaska daylight time, a Cessna 170B airplane, N2514D, sustained substantial damage while landing at the New Wasilla Airport, Wasilla, Alaska. The private pilot and the one passenger were not injured. The local, 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight, operated in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The flight departed Merrill Field, Anchorage, Alaska, about 1000. About 1110 on June 23, the NTSB investigator-in-charge (IIC) was called by an FAA Anchorage flight standards district office inspector from the accident site. The inspector related he was at the New Wasilla Airport, and saw a cloud of dust near the runway. He said when he went to investigate, he discovered the accident airplane off the right side of runway 3, resting on its nose and main landing gear. According to the inspector, the pilot said she was practicing touch and go landings on runway 3, and had completed five prior to the accident landing. During the accident landing, she made a three-point touchdown. The airplane veered sharply to the right, and she applied the brakes. The airplane nosed down on brake application, and struck the right wing on the runway. The FAA inspector noted substantial damage to ribs near the wingtip on the right wing. He also said he examined the wheels and brakes, and found no mechanical anomalies with them.

AIRCRAFT 1 FINAL REPORT


According to an FAA inspector who arrived at the accident site within a few minutes of the accident, the pilot related she was practicing touch and go landings. On her sixth landing, she lost directional control, the airplane veered to the right, and she applied the brakes. The airplane nosed down upon the application of brakes, the right wing struck the ground, and the airplane went off the right side of the runway.

AIRCRAFT 1 CAUSE REPORT


The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing. A factor associated with the accident is the pilot's excessive use of the brakes.
