April 12, 2011, Corona, Calif., Cessna 150L


At 0853 Pacific time, the airplane sustained substantial damage following loss of control and impact with a hangar door. The private pilot received minor injuries and his passenger received serious injuries. Visual conditions prevailed.

The pilot was practicing a touch-and-go landing-and was high, and close to a stall-so he applied power. The airplane turned left about 45 degrees, bounced once in the adjacent grass and crossed a taxiway. The airplane then impacted a hangar, damaging the fuselage and wings.
