June 30, Nixon, Nev. / Bellanca Scout


At about 17:45 Pacific time, a Bellanca 8GCBC nosed over during landing rollout on a road near Nixon. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said he was landing on the road to tow out a glider that had landed there. The ground crew indicated via radio that the road was long enough for him to land. The pilot said his approach may have been slightly fast, and he touched down on the downhill road with a slight tailwind. As the tow plane approached the stationary glider, the pilot applied heavy breaks, and the tow plane nosed over.
