Narrative:
The pilot of C-GWEH, a Cessna 172, was landing on Runway 31 at Regina after a flight from Prince Albert when a gust picked up the left wing, causing the right wing to dig in. The a/c then turned sharply right and cartwheeled, coming to rest approximately 100 feet west of Taxiway Alpha in the infield, upside down. ERS responded and an ambulance was called. One aircraft, a Learjet, was overshot twice during a runway inspection following the accident. The privately-licenced pilot was not injured, but the a/c is reported to be substantially damaged. Wind at the time was from 300 degrees at 25 knots, gusting to 30 knots.
