On April 2, 1994, about 1845 Pacific standard time (PST), a Beech V35B, N6746B, being flown by the owner of the aircraft, a certificated commercial pilot, was substantially damaged when it collided with a fence while landing at Paradise Air Ranch airport near Spangle, WA. There were no injuries reported for the passenger and minor injuries to the pilot. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and the flight's IFR flight plan had been cancelled. The flight originated from Auburn, WA about 1725 hours.

While landing at the unlighted airport during dusk, the pilot landed short of the runway and about 60 feet to the side of the centerline. The aircraft collided with a fence then wallowed with each wing striking the ground. This was followed by a gear collapse.

The pilot stated that he didn't see the fence until it was too late to avoid it.
