1997-05-26: The pilot of C-GWSC PARO landed on runway 26 (2,000 ft sod runway) and during the roll-out, at low speed the nose wheel sunk ino the soft ground. The pilot (sole occupant) was not injured. Damage was sustained to the propeller and possibly the engine mount. Engine will be removed for further analysis.
