July 02, Mt. Pleasant, S.C. / Mooney Ovation


At about 1430 eastern time, a Mooney M20R crashed during an attempted go-around at East Cooper Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said he approached slightly fast, touched down a third of the way down the runway, and bounced. He added power and raised the flaps and the airplane yawed left and hit the ground. A witness said the airplane initially struck nosewheel first and porpoised three or four times before the pilot attempted the go-around.
