June 8, 2007, Yoakum, Texas, Cessna 150


The non-rated pilot reported he initially planned to practice taxiing the airplane; however, he later decided to depart and fly once around the airport traffic pattern. When he attempted to land, the airplane bounced, flipped over and came to rest beside the runway. The pilot, the sole occupant of the tricycle gear airplane, sustained a head injury and was hospitalized. The airplane sustained substantial damage. The “pilot” had a Student pilot certificate issued to him in the 1950s.
