On July 13, 1995, at 1815 central daylight time, a Cessna 210D, N375HW, was substantially damaged during landing near Bentonville, Arkansas. The private pilot and one passenger were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the Title 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight. The flight departed Fayetteville, Arkansas (FYV) at 1550 and no flight plan was filed.

In the enclosed Pilot/Operator report (NTSB Form 6120.1/2), the pilot stated that he "misjudged the landing" and "landed long" on the 1,700 foot long grass airstrip. He further reported that braking action was "poor" due to the grass having been "fresh[ly] mown." Subsequently, the aircraft struck a fence off of the departure end of the runway.

The density altitude at the time of the accident was calculated to be 3,700 feet.
