October 27, Giddings, Texas / Cessna 170 and Lake Amphibian


At 10:00 central time, a Cessna 170A struck a Lake LA-4 while landing at Giddings-Lee County Airport. No one was injured. The Cessna was landing and touched down 800 feet along the 3,999-foot runway and bounced several times. It drifted left of the centerline and the pilot advanced the throttle to go around when the Cessna struck the Lake and began to cartwheel. The Cessna sliced a wing off the Lake and then crashed into a fuel pump.
