June 28, Forest, Va. / Cessna 182


About 21:40 EDT, a Cessna 182 was substantially damaged when it overran the runway on a downwind landing at the New London Airport. Neither occupant was injured. The airplane touched down on the 3,164-foot runway 34 at 60-65 mph with 30 degrees of flaps. The airplane bounced once, began to float, and touched down again with about 240 feet of runway remaining. The pilot braked heavily, but the airplane ran off the end of the runway and came to rest inverted on the side of a road. A nearby airport reported winds of 190 degrees at 10 knots.
