On September 3, 1994, approximately 1630 hours Pacific daylight time (pdt), a Cessna 182B, N2356G, registered to and being flown by Fred A. Kajans, a certificated airline transport rated pilot, was substantially damaged when it over ran the upwind end of the privately owned Miller airstrip on Lummi Island, Washington, and collided with brush and a tree while on landing roll. The pilot was uninjured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan had been filed. The flight, which was personal in nature, was to have been operated under 14CFR91, and originated from Eureka, California, earlier in the day.

The pilot reported that he was unable to stop the airplane on the sixteen hundred foot, unidirectional, turf runway before reaching the north end. He reported an eight knot tailwind at the time of the accident.

The pilot was sent a certified letter containing the National Transportation Safety Board Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident Report, Form 6120.1/2. To this date, the form has not been received (refer to ATTACHMENT I).
