On March 9, 1995, at 1752 central standard time (CST), a Cessna 152, N4598B, operated as a rental aircraft by Waukesha Flying Service, Inc., of Waukesha, Wisconsin, departed the right side of runway 18 at Waukesha County Airport (UES) and was substantially damaged.

Visual meteorological conditions existed at the time of the accident, and winds were from 130 degrees at 5 knots. No flight plan was filed, and the student solo instructional training flight was conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

The tower controller stated that the flight originated from UES and entered the closed traffic pattern at 1715 CST. During the accident landing, the airplane landed approximately 1,500 feet down the 3,599 foot long by 75 foot wide runway. The controller stated that it appeared the pilot attempted to abort his takeoff and veered off the runway near the departure end of runway 18.

The student pilot stated that he was performing practice touch and go landings and attempted to abort a takeoff. He reported that as the airplane departed the runway edge, the wheels entered deep snow, the airplane became partially airborne, yawed approximately 100 degrees left, and came to rest upright. The pilot was uninjured, the propeller was bent, and the left wingtip was deformed. The pilot did not describe, nor were any mechanical anomalies found with the airplane.
