April 13, Gig Harbor, Wash. / Cessna Cutlass


At about 19:46 Pacific time, a Cessna 172RG was damaged while landing at Tacoma Narrows Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said the airplane suffered an electrical failure after taking off from runway 17. He completed a 180-degree turn to land on the opposing runway and, just before touchdown, thought he heard the prop strike the runway. He applied power for a go-around, then aborted the go-around and put the gear down to land. When the airplane touched down, the right main landing gear collapsed.
