On May 25, 2005, about 1337 central daylight time, a Cessna 150F, N8337G, piloted by a student pilot, was substantially damaged during a hard landing and subsequent loss of control on runway 20 (2,998 feet by 46 feet, asphalt) at Neodesha Municipal Airport (2K7), Neodesha, Kansas. The flight was operating under 14 CFR Part 91 without a flight plan. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The pilot reported no injuries. The flight originated from Coffeyville Municipal Airport (CFV), Coffeyville, Kansas, about 1000.

The pilot reported that he flew to Chanute Martin Johnson Airport (CNU), Chanute, Kansas, and was returning to CFV when he needed to make an intermediate stop. He elected to land at 2K7. The pilot stated that upon departure from 2K7 en route to CFV he decided to remain in the traffic pattern for a practice landing at 2K7. He reported that the landing was "heavy" on the left main landing gear and the airplane bounced. He stated that "immediately after bouncing [the airplane] shot off the runway to the left." The pilot noted that he attempted to abort the landing but was unable to regain flying speed. The airplane impacted a tree line and came to rest.

A post-accident inspection confirmed continuity of all flight controls. Tire ruts were observed in the soft grass adjacent to the runway pavement. They extended approximately 1,400 feet from the edge of the runway pavement to the location of the airplane at the tree line.
