On July 21, 1996, at 1300 central daylight time, a Cessna 182A, N2182G, registered to and operated by a private owner under Title 14 CFR Part 91, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a loss of engine power near Skiatook, Oklahoma. The commercial pilot, the sole occupant of the airplane, was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a flight plan was not filed for the local parachuting flight which originated at 1200.

The pilot reported that, when he realized his approach to land at Skiatook Municipal Airport was high, he "started a go around, obtaining partial power." Approximately 250 to 300 feet AGL, he added "additional power, [and] the engine stalled." The pilot landed the airplane in an "open area on the airport." During the landing roll, the airplane crossed a taxiway and struck a stockpile of building material. The landing gear, fuselage, and engine firewall sustained damage.

Following the accident, the engine was started and run-up in the presence of an FAA inspector who reported that it ran "normally."
