On November 9, 2016, about 1330 eastern standard time, a Beech 36 single-engine airplane, N3089A, was substantially damaged shortly after takeoff from Flagler Executive Airport (FIN), Palm Coast, Florida. The private pilot and the pilot-rated passenger were seriously injured. The airplane was registered to a private company and operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions existed at the time of the accident and no flight plan was filed. The flight was destined for Deland Municipal Airport (DED), Deland, Florida.

According to law enforcement personnel, the pilot stated that he thought a flight control cable had failed, which resulted in an uncontrolled descent into wooded terrain.

The airplane wreckage was retained for further examination.

The pilot held a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. His last Federal Aviation Administration third-class medical certificate was issued on March 6, 2015. At that time, he reported a total flight experience of 370 hours.


Weather reported at Ormond Beach Municipal Airport (OMN), Ormond Beach, Florida, about 5 miles southeast of the accident site, was wind from 030 degrees at 5 knots, visibility 10 miles, scattered clouds at 3,200 feet, overcast clouds at 7,000 feet, temperature 22 degrees C, dew point 17 degrees C, and a barometric altimeter setting of 30.02 inches Hg.















FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - Flagler County Fire Rescue was at the scene Wednesday of a small plane crash on the western outskirts of Plantation Bay.

The plane was a 1969 Beechcraft Bonanza 36, officials said.

Two men had taken off from the Flagler County Executive Airport and were on the way to DeLand when the crash happened. 

The pilot of the plane called the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office and dispatchers were able to use his phone’s GPS coordinates to guide first-responders to the scene. 

An initial call came at 1:28 p.m. from someone playing golf at Plantation Bay who said she saw the plane go down.

"One patient has multiple broken bones, and we have not been able to assess the injuries of the second patient," Flagler County Fire Rescue Chief Don Petito said.

One of the men had to be cut out of the plane, while the other was thrown into the woods, officials said.


 “The second patient was still trapped inside the plane and crews had to extricate that second patient from the airplane and then extricate him out of the woods,” said Petito.


Joel Fallon and Josh Rosa both of Palm Coast, were pulled out of the plane’s wreckage and flown by helicopter to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach with serious injuries.


Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board have been notified and will be investigating.

The flight was en route to Ormond Beach, Florida, when he reported a main landing gear indication problem. The pilot diverted to Daytona Beach Airport for a precautionary landing. During a visual check of the landing gear by the emergency vehicle operators, it was reported that the landing gear appeared to have been down. The pilot also reported that throughout the entire sequence of events, the landing gear indicator lights' intensity continued to vary from light to dim conditions. The pilot said he made a soft field landing on runway 7 and held the nose wheel off the runway. When the nose wheel touched the pavement, the main gear, and the nose gear collapsed. The examination of the landing gear system failed to disclose a mechanical malfunction or a component failure.
