OSHKOSH (AP) — The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department says a plane crashed while arriving at EAA’s Airventure in Oshkosh. The department says a descending plane hit some parked trucks on the airport grounds just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday, July 21st. The pilot and his passenger were transferred to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officials closed the airport to all landings for about two hours after the crash.

The FAA preliminary report is here: http://www.faa.gov/data_research/accident_incident/preliminary_data/media/G_0723_N.txt

The aircraft was N339PB, a 1981 Mooney M-20J and was part of the 28 plane Mooney Caravan.

Quoting from mooneyspace.com:
"Landing was on 36R, normally a taxiway, in a tricky quartering tail wind of 8 knots from 240. Plane left the hard surface into the grass, caught a wingtip on a long line of parked trucks and rotated nose first into same line."

I have to make a slight correction, as I was present and saw the end of the crash. The airport was not closed to all landing traffic after the crash. Runway 27/09 remained open and continued to land all traffic and it wasn't closed for 2 hours, it was about an hour and a half. As for the Mooney hitting a parked truck, it didn't appear to be so, but it was hard to say. I have a photo that shows that the engine was ripped off and there was substantial damage to the left wing. It is hard to say, but I would guess he didn't hit a truck. I could be wrong; all I saw was a large cloud of dirt and a broken Mooney.
