January 21, Mammoth Lakes, Calif. / Cessna 206H


At 16:30 Pacific time, a Cessna 206H went out of control on landing at Mammoth Lakes Airport. The pilot was not injured. As he approached the airport, the ASOS reported winds from 210 degrees at 25 knots gusting to 45. He landed successfully but, as he slowed to about 30 knots on the runway, a crosswind gust lifted the left wing and sent the airplane into a snow-covered embankment. Subsequent gusts lifted the tail and flipped the airplane inverted.
