October 12, Perkasie, Pa. / Cessna Skyhawk


At 17:20 eastern time, a Cessna 172 went off the runway while landing at Pennridge Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said the setting sun hindered visibility out the windshield as he approached runway 26. As he flared, the sun was directly in his face and the glared turned the airplanes crazed windshield milky white and made forward visibility impossible. The airplane bounced several times, bending the firewall and floorboard of the airplane.
