August 24, Deer Grove, Ill. / Cessna 182


At 1930 central time, a Cessna 182 nosed over while landing on runway 36 at the Cady Aerial Airport. The pilot suffered minor injuries. The pilot had released four parachute jumpers at 11,000 feet and was planning to refuel at Cady. The wind was reported as 230 at 3 knots, so the pilot concluded either end of the runway would work. He extended his downwind to lose altitude, but he was still high and fast on final. The airplane landed approximately halfway down the 2,500-foot runway, overran the end of the runway, and nosed over. The pilot said he should have performed a go-around.
