NTSB Factual Report

On June 6, 2004, at 1140 central daylight time, a Cessna TR182, N736QX, contacted a wire fence during an overrun landing on runway 09 (1,950 feet by 100 feet, grass) at the Risovi Ranch Strip, a private airstrip in Hamberg, North Dakota. The commercial rated pilot was not injured. The airplane received substantial damage. The 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The flight originated from Dickinson, North Dakota, at 0920 mdt.

The pilot reported he received a weather briefing from the Grand Forks Flight Service Station prior to the flight. He stated he checked the wind sock, water waves, and the slough in a pasture during the traffic pattern in order to determine the wind conditions. The pilot reported the local winds were from the southeast at 20 to 30 miles per hour, gusting in excess of 35 miles per hour. He reported the runway runs east/west and he chose to land to the west because the farmstead, hangar, and trees located at the west end of the airstrip can make landing difficult in gusty wind conditions. The pilot reported he came in "hot" and touched down 1/4 to 1/2 the way down the airstrip. He reported that he did not perform a go-around due to the obstacles at the end of the runway. The airplane continued off the end of the runway where it contacted a wire fence and its associated posts.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's inadequate in-flight planning/decision and his misjudgment of speed and distance.
