NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

THE 2432 FT RWY HAD A 224 FT DISPLACED THRESHOLD DUE TO TREES NEAR THE APCH END. THE PLT STATED THAT WHEN HE LANDED, THE ACFT TOUCHED DOWN 'SOMEWHAT DOWN THE RWY PAST THE TRESHOLD' WITH 25 DEG OF FLAPS. HE STATED THAT BRAKING HAD LITTLE EFFECT BECAUSE THE FLAPS WERE STILL PROUDUCING LIFT ON THE WINGS. THE PLT THEN REALIZED THAT THE ACFT WAS TOO FAR DOWN THE RWY TO SAFELY GO AROUND. IT SUBSEQUENTLY WENT OF THE END & HIT A DITCH. THE PA-28 OWNER'S HANDBOOK STATES THERE WILL BE LESS CHANCE OF SKIDDING THE TIRES IF THE FLAPS ARE RETRACTED BEFORE APPLYING THE BRAKES.
