NTSB Factual Report

The pilot of the Cessna 182S stated that he failed to abort the landing early in the landing sequence for runway 32, and that the airplane landed long, overran the runway, and then nosed-over. Photographs revealed 330 feet of skid marks on the pavement that began prior to the departure end of the runway and continued approximately 75 feet through the grass and down a shallow ravine to the overturned airplane. Examination of the airplane revealed substantial damage to the engine compartment, both wings, and vertical stabilizer. The pilot reported there were no pre-impact malfunctions or mechanical failures with the airplane. Runway 32 was 1,840 feet long, 30 feet wide, and asphalt surfaced. Winds about the time of the accident, 17 nautical miles to the east, were 200 degrees at 6 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to stop the airplane within the available runway after touchdown.
