June 12, 2009, Nampa, Idaho, Cessna 150


The commercial pilot was practicing touch-and-go landings in the tailwheel-equipped airplane. He reported that the wind direction changed to a quartering tailwind after the airplane touched down. The pilot stated that he then lost directional control of the airplane. During the accident sequence, the left main landing gear failed and the airplane ground-looped, resulting in substantial damage to the left wing and horizontal stabilizer.
