On November 18, 2023, about 1522 Pacific standard time (PST), a Cessna 150M, N6266K, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Woodland, Washington. The flight instructor and student pilot sustained no injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight.

The flight instructor reported that about 1425 PST, they were departed from Pearson Field Airport (VUO), Vancouver, Washington to practice steep-turns and slow flight maneuvers, to include an introduction to power-off stalls and recovery. At about 3,500 ft mean sea level (msl), the instructor executed an additional stall maneuver, and as the instructor released the back pressure on the yoke and advanced the throttle setting to full to recover, the airplane’s power setting remained at idle. The instructor subsequently increased the throttle setting incrementally after decreasing it in order to increase engine power. As the engine power remained unchanged, the instructor made the decision to execute an emergency landing. The instructor maneuvered the airplane to a nearby field and shortly after touchdown, the nose landing gear separated, and the airplane nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the aft fuselage.

The airplane and engine were recovered to a secure facility for further examination.
