October 6, 2009, Easton, Pa., Cessna 172S


The pilot stated he was performing a no-flap landing after completing a local flight. On short final, he realized he was low and initiated a go-around. With the application of power, the airplane rolled to the left and the left wheel struck an approximately eight-foot-high embankment located near the edge of the displaced threshold of the runway. The left landing gear was torn off, and the airplane slid on its right wheel and fuselage approximately 200 feet before coming to rest. The airplane sustained substantial damage to its left wing and fuselage.
