February 16, Davis, W.Va. / Piper Seneca


At 1440 eastern time, a Piper PA-34-200 was damaged while landing at Windwood Resort Airport. The pilot and three passengers were not injured. The pilot said he circled the runway twice after arriving to determine the wind direction and runway conditions. The runway appeared to look clear, with a few ice patches on the surface, and snow mounds off to the sides. After touching down on runway 06, a 3,000-foot long, 40-foot wide asphalt runway, the left landing gear assembly encountered a low flat snow patch, and the airplane departed the left side of the runway.
