On November 5, 1998, at 0900 central standard time, a Cessna 150M, N704LV, collided with the terrain following a loss of directional control while landing on runway 36 (4,206' x 75') at the Skyhaven Airport, Warrensburg, Missouri. The student pilot was not injured and the airplane was substantially damaged. The 14 CFR Part 91 student solo training flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The local flight originated from the Skyhaven Airport at 0850 cst.

The accident occurred during the student pilot's first solo flight. He reported, "As I came into land, I didn't flare enough and came down on my front wheel. I then came down on my right rear wheel." He reported the airplane was headed toward the left side of the runway once all three gear were on the ground. The airplane traveled off the runway and continued through the grass prior to contacting a bank in the terrain.
