    You got to look at this as a learning situation. First good luck that no one was hurt. second tri-gear airplanes do flip onto there backs. third go around if things don't look right, right is something you seen before with you instructor.

    Glad to hear it was not N64456, owned her for 6 years before selling her to the Elmendorf Aero Club ....

    Speaking of off strip landings, anyone have any info on the yellow plane that was on the parks highway ROW at mile 75 last week? It was there when I went by in the evening and gone by morning...

    So which Public "Ski Strip" did he try to land that government issued Nose-Dragger? Just curious...

He landed on the soft snow and when the nose gear touched, it flipped. I am very thankful he walked away. But, I very literally cried when I found out. I was quite attached to that plane. This is the second 172 the aeroclub has lost within 10 months. Everyone is scrambling for airtime now. There's not enough aircraft to fly. THe students and instructors are...well...you can imagine. I am beginning to see why people buy their own planes, even though it is so expensive.

    near montana creek, it was a wheeled 172 that tried to land on an unplowed strip, and flipped, no one was hurt. The plane looked in very good shape. Not sure if it was a precautionary landing or not. monitoring 121.5 we heard the ELT and found the plane and reported to talkeetna FSS

    Small plane crash

    Just off of mile 91.4, last night about 5-6 pm. No one hurt private run way and flipped at the end..

    Tried to get details, but troopers were fairly tight lipped, as they should be.

    Will try to get updates and/or info throughout day.
