On May 28, 1996, at 1400 central daylight time (cdt), a Cessna U206, N5192U, was substantially damaged, when the aircraft flipped over during a water landing, at the Wipline Sea Plane Base, Inver Grove, Minnesota. After the aircraft flipped over, the private pilot and passenger exited the aircraft through the cabin doors. The pilot and the passenger were uninjured in the accident. Visual meteorological conditions existed at the time of the 14 CFR Part 91 fight, and no flight plan was filed.

The pilot reported on the NTSB form 6120.1/2 that he had departed from Baudette, Minnesota en route to the Wipline Airport, Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The pilot wrote that before landing he checked the weather conditions on the radio. The pilot wrote that once over the river there were "... a couple of bad gusts." The pilot then reported that "... I hit the water and skipped once, caught a float, and flipped over." The winds at the South St. Paul, Fleming Airport, which is approximately three nautical miles from the accident location at 1416 cdt were 15 knots, gusting to 21 knots. The pilot did not list any aircraft component failures on the accident form.

Aircraft damage consisted of a fractured right pontoon, a twisted fuselage between the cabin and the empennage, and buckling of the wing skins.
PROBABLE CAUSE:the pilot's improper recovery from the bounced landing. The gusty wind condition was a factor.
