On February 10, 1995, approximately 1600 Pacific standard time, a Cessna 180, N626RP, sustained substantial damage when it nosed over during a touch-and-go landing at Camas, Washington. The private pilot and his certified flight instructor were uninjured.

There was no fire, and no report of the ELT actuating. No flight plan was filed for the flight, which was conducted in visual meteorological conditions.

An FAA inspector who went to the scene stated that the private pilot was receiving dual currency training from the flight instructor. During a touch-and-go, a wheel landing was performed. The aircraft bounced, then drifted to the right of the runway, where the right wheel was in grass and soft dirt. Both pilots attempted to recover, but the aircraft nosed over, causing substantial damage to the wings and fuselage.
