NTSB Factual Report

On June 21, 2016, about 1947 central daylight time, a Cessna 182Q airplane, N377H, sustained substantial damage during a hard landing on runway 27 at the Anoka County-Blaine Airport (ANE), Blaine, Minnesota. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane sustained damage to the forward fuselage and firewall. The airplane was registered to a private individual and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which was not on a flight plan. The local flight originated about 10 minutes prior to the accident.

The pilot reported that while in the traffic pattern, she applied carburetor heat and extended the flaps to 10 degrees. At this point her passenger informed her that the engine manifold pressure had reduced to 4 inches of manifold air pressure (MAP). She added throttle and the it recovered to 14-15 MAP. She stated that she was concerned about having an engine failure and kept the airspeed at 80 knots until she was sure she had the runway made. She then throttled back. The airspeed reduced to 60 knots and as the airplane crossed the end of the runway she "lost all airspeed". She stated that a short time later the airplane was 8-10 ft in the air and a hard landing was made.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain a proper airspeed during the landing approach, which resulted in an improper flare and hard landing.
