On January 24, 2006 just before 11 AM, a 2-seater Cessna aircraft attempted to land at the Lantana airport and ended up upside down in the grass. The pilot was uninjured but shaken up. Luckily there was neither a fuel leak nor any type of fire involved. Four people were able to flip the plane upright so that it could be towed to a hanger for inspection. Runway 15 was closed for a short period of time until the aircraft could be moved.

Units on scene included: RE35, R35, DC9, BC9, and DC8.
