HISTORY OF FLIGHT On July 14, 1996, at 1640 eastern standard time, a Cessna 152, N6468Q, impacted the ground left of the runway shortly after takeoff from Blue Ash Airport, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The student pilot, the sole occupant, received no injuries, and the airplane was substantially damaged. Visual meteorological conditions existed at the time of the accident, and no flight plan was filed. The local solo instructional flight was conducted under 14 CFR Part 91, and originated from the Blue Ash Airport, at approximately 1630.

The student pilot, who had a total of 31 flight hours, reported that he was practicing touch and go landings when the accident occurred. The student pilot stated that he was on his second touch and go landing when a gust of wind lifted the aircraft off runway 24 and set it onto the grass area to the left of the runway. The winds were reported from 190 degrees at 9 knots. The pilot stated that he tried to steer the aircraft against the wind change while stopping the aircraft. He stated that he was unable to do so before the aircraft dropped off the cleared grassy area into a rougher area with taller grass and debris. The pilot stated that as the aircraft stopped, it flipped over, nose first and came to rest upside down.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION The Federal Aviation Administration Inspector on scene stated that the airplane's flight controls were checked for continuity and that no anomalies could be found associated with the engine.
