April 14, Kent, Ohio / Cessna Centurion


At about 10:45 eastern time, a Cessna T210N went off the runway during an aborted landing at Kent State University Airport. The flight instructor and student received minor injuries. The flight instructor said he had been asked by the pilot to help him with landings. They practiced landings at Ravenna, then proceeded to Kent. The pilot said he bounced the landing. A wind gust pushed the aircraft to the left edge of the runway. The CFI added power to make a go-around, then aborted the go-around and put the airplane into the grass, where the nose wheel snapped off in the mud. The CFI said the aircraft continued to settle after adding full power for a go-around, so he made a forced landing in the grass.
