On August 5, 2000, at 1200 central daylight time, a Cessna 182M airplane, N182DG, was substantially damaged when it impacted the runway following a loss of control at the Shawnee Municipal Airport, near Shawnee, Oklahoma. The airplane was registered to and operated by Basin Aviation Inc., of Midland, Texas. The instrument rated private pilot and her two passengers were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight, for which an IFR flight plan was filed. The cross-country flight originated from the Midland Airpark, near Midland, Texas, and was destined for Shawnee, Oklahoma.

During a telephone interview conducted by the NTSB Investigator-In-Charge, the pilot reported that she was cleared for the ILS 17 approach at the Shawnee Municipal Airport. While she was on final approach, the Unicom operator reported the winds from 170 degrees at 19 knots. The airplane was 5 feet agl when a "wind gust from the west lifted the right wing," and the airplane "stalled and bounced." She advanced the throttle, regained control of the airplane, and executed the second touchdown without further incident. She stated that the wind, at the time of the accident, was from the southwest and gusty. She added that she had received a DUAT's weather briefing before the flight, and the winds were forecast to be from the south between 17 and 22 knots.

At 1153, the weather observation facility at the Will Rogers World Airport, Oklahoma, City, Oklahoma, (located 30 miles east of the accident site) reported the winds from 200 degrees at 15 knots. At 1253 the winds were reported from 200 degrees at 17 knots, gusting to 22 knots.

The FAA inspector reported that the engine firewall was wrinkled and the propeller blades were bent.

Multiple attempts by the NTSB to obtain a completed Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident Report (NTSB Form 6120.1/2), were not responded to by the pilot.
