Accident at HUMBOLDT SK (CJU4)

Summary

2001-03-20: The pilot of C-GIQB, a Cessna 172, departed Saskatoon on a cross country flight to Humboldt with a pilot and one passenger on board. As the pilot touched down at Humboldt a loss of control occurred which caused the aircraft to contact a snowbank and come to rest on its nose. The aircraft was approximately 15 feet north of Runway 10/28. The landing was being accomplished on Runway 28. There were no injuries to either occupant however there was substantial damage to the aircraft's propeller and nose gear.
2001-03-22: UPDATE TSB reported that the rented Cessna 172P was landing in gusty south winds on Runway 28 at Humboldt. As the aircraft touched down, it encountered a gust of wind, which lifted it into the air and displaced it laterally. When it landed again, a second gust of wind pushed it to the north side of the runway, where it struck a snowbank, nosed down and overturned. Both the pilot and the passenger were uninjured. The aircraft sustained substantial damage to its wingtips, cowling, and propeller.
