June 25, Hamilton, Ohio / Lancair 235


At about 13:00 EDT, a homebuilt Lancair 235 was damaged during a loss of control during landing at Hamilton-Fairfield Airport. The pilot suffered minor injuries. An investigator determined that the pilot made an approach to runway 29, but performed a go-around prior to touchdown. During a second landing attempt, the airplane touched down, then veered to the left and struck a runway light. The pilot added full power to go around again. The airplane then pitched nose-up and rolled left. The propeller struck the ground, and the airplane cartwheeled. The pilot had less than 100 total flight hours, and less than five hours in make and model.
