On March 20, 1994, at 1100 central standard time, a Defelici Kit Fox III, sustained substantial damage when it nosed-over after the pilot lost control of the airplane on landing at the Green Castle Airport, Oxford, Iowa. Neither the certified flight instructor nor the student aboard the airplane were injured. No flight plan was filed for the local instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time.

The flight instructor reported a gust of wind lifted the left wing as he was attempting to land, and the student's leg against the control stick prevented him from levelling the wings. He stated he told the student to get his leg off the stick, and attempted to land the airplane in a field beside the runway. He said the airplane nosed-over on touchdown.
