NTSB Factual Report

On December 4, 2005, at 1500 central standard time, a Cessna 182E single-engine airplane, N123F, was substantially damaged during a forced landing after the pilot in command became ill during cruise flight near Lansing, Kansas. The private pilot and two passengers sustained minor injuries. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and a flight plan was not filed for the Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. The local flight departed Highcrest Air Park (SN83), Lansing, Kansas, at an unknown time.

According to a Federal Aviation Administration inspector who responded to the accident site, the pilot became ill while in cruise flight and decided he could not safely continue to fly the airplane to SN83. The pilot then initiated a forced landing to a field a few miles from SN83. During the forced landing, the airplane impacted a rising embankment and came to rest upright in the field. Examination of the airplane by the inspector revealed the nose gear was separated and the firewall was buckled.

NTSB Probable Cause

the pilot's inability to maintain aircraft control during the forced landing which resulted in a collision with terrain. A contributing factor was the pilot becoming ill during cruise flight.
