July 20, Garrettsville, Ohio / Cessna Stationair


At about 13:30 eastern time, a Cessna 206G overran the runway at a private airstrip in Garrettsville and struck a house. The pilot and passenger suffered minor injuries. The pilot said he purchased fuel at a nearby airport and returned to his private airstrip. During the landing, he overflew 2,000 feet of grass runway and touched down on 700 feet of concrete runway. The concrete was contaminated by buckshot from a nearby skeet shooting range and the airplane could not stop. The pilot was landing to the west, but winds were reported at a nearby airport as from 130 at 11 knots.
