A pilot of a small airplane is going to be okay after a rough landing at Oakland County International Airport on Monday.

Around 3:30 Monday afternoon, the single-engine plane came in for a rough landing. It had spent the previous two and half hours circling the airport.
  
According the airport, the plane's pilot was unable to get the landing gear locked down when they tried to initially land. The pilot aborted that landing attempt and then tried to remedy the problem while circling overhead.

SkyFox was near the airport and captured video of the plane landing. When it came in for the landing, the front landing gear collapsed and the plane skidded to a stop.

The pilot escaped the plane quickly and was not injured.


The plane is a 1978 Piper PA-28 Cherokee and is registered to IXI LLC.

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - A small plane has made a daring emergency landing at the Oakland County International Airport.

The plane began having problems with its front landing gear shortly before noon.

After circling for hours, it finally came in a short time ago.

As it came in, you could see the pilot trying to keep the weight of the plane on the back landing gears.

As soon as the front wheel hit the ground, it folded underneath the aircraft.

Once the plane came to a stop, two people quickly hopped out, in case it caught fire.

Fortunately, everyone appears to be okay.

We're told the plane is part of a flight school that flies out of Oakland County Airport.

On December 4, 2016, about 1525 Pacific standard time, an experimental Velocity XL/RG, N84KJ, landed gear-up at Petaluma Municipal Airport (O69), Petaluma, California. The pilot, the sole occupant, sustained minor injuries; the airplane sustained substantial damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, and no flight plan was filed. The local flight originated from O69 at 1455.

The pilot reported that during the landing sequence, he extended the landing gear; however, the airplane impacted the runway surface with the landing gear in the gear-up position. Postaccident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the landing gear handle was in the "up" position.

NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The commercial pilot of the jet reported that he initially requested that 100 lbs of fuel be added to both fuel tanks. During the subsequent preflight inspection, the pilot decided that more fuel was needed, so he requested that the airplane’s fuel tanks be topped off with fuel. However, he did not confirm the fuel levels or check the fuel gauges before takeoff. He departed on the flight and did not check the fuel gauges until about 1 hour after takeoff. He stated that, at that time, the fuel gauges were showing about 900-1,000 lbs of fuel per side, and he realized that the fuel tanks had not been topped off as requested. He reduced engine power to conserve fuel and to increase the airplane’s flight endurance while he continued to his destination. When the fuel gauges showed about 400-500 lbs of fuel per side, the low fuel lights for both wing fuel tanks illuminated. The pilot reported to air traffic control that the airplane was low on fuel and diverted the flight to the nearest airport. The pilot reported that the airplane was high and fast on the visual approach for landing. He misjudged the height above the ground and later stated that the airplane “landed very hard.” The airplane’s left main landing gear and nose gear collapsed and the airplane veered off the runway, resulting in substantial damage to the left wing. The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. 

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot’s failure to fly a stabilized approach and his inadequate landing flare, which resulted in a hard landing. Contributing to the accident was the pilot’s failure to ensure that the airplane was properly serviced with fuel before departing on the flight.  

On December 4, 2016, about 1853 mountain standard time, a Cessna Citation 500, N332SE, sustained substantial damage during a hard landing and runway excursion at the Gunnison-Crested Butte Airport (GUC), Gunnison, Colorado. The pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a business flight. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and the flight was on an instrument flight plan. The flight departed the San Jose International Airport (SJC), San Jose, California, about 1616 and Pueblo, Colorado, was the destination.

The pilot reported that he originally requested that the fixed base operator (FBO) at SJC put 100 gallons of jet fuel in each wing fuel tank. Later during his preflight, the pilot decided that more fuel was needed, so he went back into the FBO and requested that the airplane's fuel tanks be topped off with fuel. The pilot was still in the FBO when he saw the lineman fuel the airplane from the fuel truck. He paid for the fuel without looking at the receipt and then proceeded out to the airplane. The pilot reported that he did not recheck the fuel gauges before departing SJC. 

The pilot reported that he departed on the flight, but it was not until about an hour after takeoff that he checked the fuel gauges. He stated that the fuel gauges were showing about 900 to 1,000 lbs of fuel per side, and he realized that the fuel tanks had not been topped off with fuel. He reduced the throttles to conserve fuel and to increase the airplane's flight endurance while he continued the flight to Pueblo, Colorado. 

The pilot reported that when the fuel gauges showed about 400 to 500 lbs of fuel per side, the low fuel lights for both wing fuel tanks illuminated. About 1840, the pilot reported to air traffic control (ATC) that the airplane was low on fuel and asked to land at the nearest airport. ATC provided radar vectors to GUC and initially cleared the flight for the ILS runway 6 approach. During the approach, the pilot reported that he had the runway in sight and ATC cleared the flight for a visual approach. 

The pilot reported that the airplane was high and fast on the approach. At 500 ft above ground level, the airspeed was about 120 knots. He misjudged the runway and the height above the ground and he stated, "I landed very hard on runway 24." During touchdown, the airplane bounced and then impacted the runway. The airplane's left main landing gear and nose gear collapsed and the airplane veered off the runway, resulting in substantial damage to the left wing. The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. 

At 1856, the surface weather observation at GUC was: wind 340 degrees at 4 knots; visibility 10 miles; sky condition few clouds at 7,500 ft; temperature -8 degrees C; dew point -13 degrees C; altimeter 30.08 inches of mercury.

Accident occurred Saturday, December 03, 2016 in Goshen, IN
Probable Cause Approval Date: 05/01/2017
Aircraft: ARION AIRCRAFT LLC LIGHTNING LS-1, registration: N218D
Injuries: 2 Uninjured.

NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The sport pilot reported that, before departing on a cross-country flight, he contacted the flight service station for a weather briefing for his flight route. He then conducted a preflight inspection of the airplane, started it to allow it to warm up, and ran the carburetor heat before departing. The climb to cruise at 2,000 ft was normal. The pilot reported that, about 10 miles from the departure airport, the engine started to run "rough" and that he applied carburetor heat. When this did not have any effect on engine performance, he decided to return to the departure airport. He added that, during the return, the engine "power was very poor" and that the airplane was losing altitude rapidly. The pilot spotted a clear field nearby and performed a soft-field landing approach. Upon landing, the gear dug into the soft plowed field. The airplane continued forward on its belly, which resulted in substantial damage. The weather conditions were conducive to the accumulation of serious icing at any power setting. Although the pilot reported that he used carburetor heat, it is likely that the ice had already accumulated to the degree that the carburetor heat was insufficient to melt the ice and restore full engine power. An examination of the airplane and engine did not reveal any preimpact anomalies.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
A partial loss of engine power due to carburetor icing and the subsequent forced landing on a rough/soft field.

On December 3, 2016, about 0851 eastern standard time, an Arion Aircraft LLC, Lightning LS-1 airplane, N218D, impacted soft terrain during a forced landing following an inflight loss of engine power near Goshen, Indiana. The pilot and his passenger were uninjured. The airplane sustained substantial fuselage damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which did not operate on a flight plan. The flight originated from the Goshen Municipal Airport (GSH), near Goshen, Indiana, about 0840 and was destined for the Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV), near Ankeny, Iowa.

According to the pilot, he contacted the flight service station for a weather briefing along his route of flight to IKV. He conducted a preflight inspection of the airplane. About 0825, the pilot loaded the airplane and started it to allow it to warm up. About 0830, the airplane was taxied to runway 27. The pilot performed flight checks that allowed the operating temperatures to continue to warm and he "ran the carburetor heat again just prior to departing." About 0835, he departed from the runway on a 270 heading. The climb to cruise at 2,000 feet was normal and he subsequently transitioned to cruise. About 9 to 10 nautical miles from GSH the engine started to run "rough" and the pilot applied carburetor heat. This did not improve engine performance, so he decided to return to GSH where he started to line up for a downwind for runway 27. The engine continued to sputter with carburetor heat applied. Engine "power was very poor" and the airplane was losing altitude rapidly. The pilot then thought that the airplane may be able to make runway 9. He subsequently realized the airplane was too low for that approach and with little power, the airplane would not be able to make the field where it would end up in the trees or fence short of runway 9. The pilot spotted a clear field that he could turn into and have an up wind landing. He called common traffic advisory frequency at GSH about 0852 and announce a mayday call that indicated where the airplane was landing. The pilot performed a soft field landing approach and slowed as much as possible heading back on 270 heading. He knew that the fields were recently tilled and would be very soft and muddy due to recent rains. The pilot attempted to fly just above the surface as long as possible and keeping the nose up. On landing the gear dug into the very soft plowed field and the airplane continued forward on its belly. The pilot indicated that it was a very short amount of time from when he "called in and actually landed the plane."

At 0853, the recorded weather at GSH was: Wind 260 degrees at 5 knots; visibility 10 statute miles; sky condition overcast clouds at 2,800 feet; temperature 1 degree C; dew point -3 degrees C; altimeter 30.33 inches of mercury.

The temperature and dew point spread were plotted on a carburetor icing probability chart. Their intersection was within the serious icing at any power setting envelope.

A Federal Aviation Administration Inspector conducted an on-scene investigation of the accident airplane. He established flight control continuity existed. He observed that the fuel filters, one for each tank, were mounted in the aircraft cabin under the seats. The filters appeared clean and contained a liquid consistent with 100 low lead aviation gasoline. Some engine components sustained impact damage and the engine could not be test run. However, no preimpact anomalies were detected.

Northwest Missouri Regional Airport runway rebuild nears completion




City-owned Northwest Missouri Regional Airport west of Maryville is open for business.

As of Sunday, the rebuilt 4,600-foot runway was approved for daylight takeoffs and landings. Assistant City Manager Ryan Heiland said clearance for 24-hour usage should come by the end of the week.

The airport had been closed since mid-June when crews from Ideker Construction in St. Joseph began breaking up the old runway, which was beginning to pose safety issues related to disintegrating pavement.

Not included in the rebuild was the southernmost 600 feet of the runway, which was added as an extension in 2008 along with a second taxiway.

The remainder of the 75-foot-wide airstrip, all of which has been replaced, was built in the mid-1990s.

Heiland said Ideker crews will remain on site for the next several days completing electrical work related to a new runway lighting system included as part of the repaving project.

The airport was originally scheduled to reopen in early October, but problems related to creating an adequate substrate — the packed gravel bed on which the newly poured concrete rests — pushed completion back by two months.

Total project cost of the runway rehab is just under $3.4 million, with more than 90 percent of the funding coming from a Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program grant.

The city is responsible for a $339,000 local match, which is being financed using a Missouri Department of Transportation Statewide Transportation Assistance Revolving Fund loan — a program known as STAR.
