Accident at Southend, SK


1997-06-03: The pilot overflew the airport prior to landing and determined that the wind was nearly down Runway 20. During the landing, the pilot observed that there was a gusting cross-wind from the right. He attempted to keep the a/c on the runway using rudder and aileron, but the a/c departed the left side of the runway about half-way along the 2100 foot long strip. The a/c sustained substantial damage to the propellor, landing gear and right wing. There were no injuries to the two people on board. There are no official weather observations made at this airport, and the ATF at the airport ground site was non-operational.
