June 12, Bennettsville, S.C. / Cessna Skyhawk


At about 10:55 eastern time, a Cessna 172M slid off an embankment after landing at a private landing strip near Bennettsville. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said he landed normally on runway 12 and then did a fast taxi to get to the opposite end of the runway. A gust of wind lifted the right wing, the nose weathercocked into the wind and the airplane slid sideways, left side first, over an embankment.
