Investigation of aircrat acccident at Reinsvoll Airport, Innlandet county

On 22 May 2021, LN-AGT, a Cessna 172S, made several landing attempts at Reinsvoll Airport. At the last attempt the aircraft came into contact with some trees after the landing was aborted.

LN-AGT carried out a private flight from Reinsvoll Airport with the commander and two passengers on board. The flight was planned with a flight over Lillehammer, Brumunddal and landing at the same airport. As the aircraft approached Reinsvoll airport for landing, the commander observed some rain showers south of the airport and that it was calm with the wind indicator hanging straight down. The commander chose to approach runway 34. However, at the final, the commander discovered that there was a tractor on or near the runway, so he chose to abort the landing.

After the first landing attempt, another 5-6 landing attempts were made and the commander did not observe that the wind changed to a southerly wind with variable wind speed. This meant that the landing attempts were probably made in tailwinds.

In the last attempt, the plane hit the runway hard and the result was that the plane jumped into the air and the pilot chose once again to abort the landing. At the abort-take off, which was initiated approximately halfway into the runway, the aircraft did not regain enough altitude to avoid a collision with some trees in the runway extension. After contact with the trees, the pilot chose to fly to Hamar airport and landed there. The restriction in the height of the elevators movements after hitting the trees resulted in the plane ending out on the grass after landing. No one was injured. The plane suffered significant damage.
