On November 1, 1994, approximately 1500 hours Pacific standard time (pst), a Cessna 205A, N4801U, registered to David Petet & Kelly Kelso, operated by Orofino Aviation, Inc., and being flown by Philip M. Rosenberg, a commercial pilot, was substantially damaged when the aircraft collided with trees as it overran the upwind end of runway 04 at the Moose Creek Ranger Station, near Lowell, Idaho. The pilot, who was the sole occupant, was uninjured. The flight, which was a business delivery of feed to the destination airport, was to have been operated under 14CFR91, and originated from Orofino, Idaho, at 1415 hours.

The pilot reported that he landed long and fast, and that the runway was wet and had about a one inch layer of fresh, wet snow overlaying the short grass surface. During the landing rollout he had no braking, overran the upwind end of the runway and collided with trees.

The pilot reported that there were no mechanical problems with the aircraft during the landing.
