March 4, 2006, Brooksville, Fla. / Cessna 180


The Airline Transport pilot received serious injuries and the airplane was substantially damaged at about 1055 Eastern time when the Cessna crashed short of the runway. Visual conditions prevailed. A witness saw the accident airplane on the downwind leg, rocking its wings. While on final approach, he saw the propeller had stopped rotating. It appeared the pilot was trying to stretch the glide; the airplane stalled and impacted the ground a short distance from the runway.
