May 11, Bryson City, N.C. / Mooney M20C


At about 18:15 EDT, a Mooney M-20C collided with a wooden pallet and other materials during landing rollout at Sossamon Field. The pilot, who was uninjured, said he was going to the airport to talk to the airport manager about debris being stored next to the runway. The airplane encountered a quartering crosswind during the landing. It drifted to the right on landing rollout, and the right wing tip collided with a wood pallet. The airplane pulled to the right, went across an apron and collided with stored material, collapsing the nose gear.
