On May 5, 2004, at 1535 central daylight time, a Cessna 172P, N65752, piloted by a student pilot, sustained substantial damage when it nosed-over following a loss of directional control while departing runway 29 (3,800 feet by 100 feet, dry concrete) at the Schaumburg Regional Airport (06C), Schaumburg, Illinois. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident. The solo-instructional flight was operating under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91 without a flight plan. The student pilot was not injured. The local area flight departed 06C at 1530.

According to the pilot, the purpose of the flight was to practice solo takeoffs and landings. The pilot reported that during the takeoff roll the airplane "veered to right, then to left, eventually running off left side of runway and ending up overturned."

An inspector with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) performed the on-scene investigation. The inspector reported there were no flight control system anomalies and that the brake system functioned as designed.
