On October 24, 1993, at approximately 1230 central daylight time, a Cessna 172N, N317BB, was substantially damaged when it collided with trees during an attempted go around at Tyler County Airport, Woodville, Texas. The pilot was not injured, but his two passengers received minor injuries. No flight plan was filed and visual meteorological conditions prevailed for this personal flight which departed from Beaumont, Texas, at 1150.

The following is based on the attached Pilot/Operator report: When the airplane was flared for landing, the nose turned to the right and the pilot added power to go around. The nose then pitched up and the pilot felt resistance to nose down inputs. The aircraft touched down, struck a runway edge light, became airborne, and settled into trees off the right side of the runway.

Examination of the aircraft by an Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed no flight control abnormalities or other system or airframe pre-impact discrepancies.
