March 6, 2006, Atlantic City, N.J. / Cessna 172S


As the pilot approached the runway, the visual approach slope indicator showed that the airplane was on a proper glidepath. During the landing, the airplane encountered ground effect and floated down the runway. The pilot contemplated aborting the landing, but subsequently elected to continue. After touchdown he applied full brakes, but the airplane overran the end of the runway, and was substantially damaged. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions associated with the airplane.
