According to the pilot of the Nord Stampe SV4C, he made three successful landings at the 1,500-foot-long, 100-foot-wide grass airstrip. During the fourth landing attempt’s final approach, the airplane’s main landing gear became entangled in the last 20 to 25 feet of a 2-foot-high wheat field. The airplane then nosed over, and came to rest inverted on the runway. Neither the pilot nor the Federal Aviation Administration inspector on-scene reported any preimpact mechanical anomalies with the airplane. The pilot also noted that he shouldn’t have tried to land so close to the approach end of the runway.
