April 22, Hampton, N.H. / Cessna Cardinal


At about 13:10 eastern time, a Cessna 177 struck trees during a go-around from the Hampton Airfield. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The pilot was landing on runway 20, a 2,100-foot turf runway, when he elected to go-around due to extremely turbulent conditions. As the airplane began to climb, it encountered more turbulence, and struck trees about 50 feet beyond the departure end of the runway. Nearby winds were reported from 280 degrees at 18 knots, gusts to 25 knots.
