On December 3, 2006, at 1556 eastern standard time, a Cessna 150F, N8019F, was substantially damaged while landing at the Bowman Field Airport (B10), Livermore Falls, Maine. The certificated private pilot and passenger were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the personal flight conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

According to the pilot, he made a "good 3-point landing," on the turf runway, but during the landing roll the tailwheel-equipped airplane veered to the right. He applied full left rudder; however, the airplane continued to the right, then "groundlooped."

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that it sustained damage to the left wing, left horizontal stabilizer, and elevator. Additionally, the tailwheel attachment was bent approximately 40 degrees to the right. No preimpact mechanical anomalies were observed by the inspector.

The winds reported at an airport 16 miles to the east, at 1553, were from 290 degrees at 9 knots.
