July 18, Silverdale, Wash. / Cessna 182A


At approximately 10:15 PDT, the pilot of a Cessna 182A crashed into a parked Beech Bonanza while attempting to abort a landing at the Apex Airpark. The Cessna pilot sustained minor injuries; the Beech was unoccupied. The investigator found marks from the aircraft wheels in the dirt approximately 90 feet short of the runway 35 threshold. A witness reported seeing the aircraft veer right after landing, heard an application of power, and then observed the aircraft collide with the Beech C35. The pilot returned to the aircraft following a medical evaluation, removed the contents of the aircraft, and has been unreachable since.
