June 1, West Milford, N.J. / Beech Sport


At 19:30 eastern time, the pilot of a Beech 19 lost control during an aborted landing at Greenwood Lake Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot was practicing touch and goes when, on the third one, the approach was steeper and faster than normal. The airplane floated in the flare, ballooned slightly and then landed hard as the pilot was attempting to make a go-around. The airplane was partially airborne when it exited the left side of the runway and the pilot aborted the go-around. After the pilot chopped the power, the airplane had enough speed to clear a small ditch, but the airplane nosed in on the other side.
