Analysis 

The pilot reported that, after departure in dark night conditions, he became disoriented about two-thirds of the way to his destination airport. He added that he circled over a nearby town for about an hour but was unable to find any visual references to aid in navigation. The pilot then called a family member on the ground, who provided guidance to the destination airport via a phone tracking application. He added that he spotted what appeared to be the destination airport, maneuvered for approach, and during the landing flare, he realized he was not at the airport. The pilot landed on a roadway that was about 6 miles from his intended destination. During landing, the airplane struck trees, landed on a road, veered left, and impacted a light pole.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and left wing.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. 

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's geographic disoriention during a night flight, which resulted in an off-airport landing.

Findings

Personnel issues
Geographic disorient (lost) - Pilot (Cause)

Environmental issues
Dark - Effect on personnel

NAMPA, ID - A Boise man has been treated for minor injuries following a plane crash in Nampa Monday night.

About 9:00 p.m., Nampa Police officers responded to the area of East Terra Linda Way and Selland Way for a report of a crashed Cessna 150M. 

A family member of the pilot called from the scene and advised the pilot was already headed to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The pilot is a 28-year-old male and a resident of Boise, said Nampa Police Department spokesman Sgt. Tim Riha.

An initial investigation found the pilot had become disoriented while traveling from Burley to Caldwell -- and attempted to land at what he believed was the Caldwell Airport, Riha explained. “Upon attempting to land, he realized he was not at the airport but was unable to avoid crashing. The pilot was the lone occupant of the plane,” he said.

No other citizens were injured, and only minimal property damage occurred as a result of the crash. 

The investigation has been turned over to officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Accident Number: CEN18LA064
Date & Time: 12/28/2017, 1630 EST
Registration: N4JW
Aircraft: PIPISTREL DOO AJDOVSCINA VIRUS SW
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On December 28, 2017, about 1630 eastern standard time, a Pipistrel Doo Ajdovscina Virus SW airplane, N4JW, impacted terrain during a forced landing on a road following an inflight loss of engine power near Paulding, Ohio. The pilot, who was the sole occupant, was uninjured. The airplane sustained substantial wing damage when it exited the road and impacted vegetation and rough terrain. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed in the area about the time of the accident, and the flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight originated from a private airport near Paulding, Ohio.

According to an initial statement from the pilot, he was conducting slow flight about 80 kts when the engine began to lose power. He switched ignition systems and engine performance did not improve. The pilot switched fuel tanks and no improvement in engine performance was noted. Changing power appeared to improve engine operation. However, engine performance got worse again. The pilot tried to reach a private airstrip about 3 miles east of his location. He was not able to reach the airstrip, given the local wind and airplane altitude, so he selected a nearby road for a forced landing. The road was ice covered and provided very little braking. During rollout, the pilot was concerned about approaching railroad crossing signs and a tall bush. The airplane's left wing impacted the bush just before the airplane crossed the railroad. The airplane subsequently swerved to the left and the nose wheel broke off when the airplane impacted the ditch on the northwest side of the railroad. The airplane stopped on the north side of the railroad about 30 ft off the road.

Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On January 1, 2018, about 1725 eastern standard time, a Costruzioni Aeronautiche Tecnam P2006T airplane, N594MA, sustained substantial damage following a landing gear separation during landing at the Falwell Airport, Lynchburg, Virginia. The certificated flight instructor in the right seat and the pilot receiving instruction in the left seat sustained no injury. The airplane was registered to Mid-Atlantic Air Ventures, Inc., Martinsville, Virginia and was operated by the Infinity Flight Group, Trenton, New Jersey, as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 visual flight rules instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions were present at the time of the accident and no flight plan was filed. The airplane departed from the Trenton Mercer Airport, Trenton, about 1440.

The flight instructor reported that the flight was an instructional multiple leg cross-county, that was required for the pilot to complete toward a commercial pilot certificate. Enroute to the Falwell Airport, the flight following procedures were cancelled once the airplane was within 5 miles from the destination airport. The aircrew then monitored the automated terminal information service (ATIS) from the Lynchburg Regional Airport/Preston Glen Field, Lynchburg, which reported the wind condition at 8 knots, from 290°. The pilot was landing on runway 28.

The flight instructor further reported, the pilot entered the airport traffic pattern from the north-northwest onto a 3 mile right base leg for runway 28. The pilot then lowered the landing gear and confirmed there were 3 green landing gear lights. The pilot turned onto final approach, and with the flaps fully extended, the aircrew verified verbally that all landing gears were down and locked. The pilot maintained about a 500 fpm descent on final and verified verbally with the flight instructor that the airspeed was 70 knots. The pilot flared and executed a normal landing. Immediately after touchdown, the left main landing gear assembly separated at the axle. Subsequently, the airplane skidded for about 100 feet, departed the runway to the left, and came to rest on the grass. The pilot performed a shutdown and the two occupants egressed without further incident.

The flight instructor reported there were no wind gusts during the approach and landing, and there was no side loading at touchdown. The flight instructor further reported that in his experience, he did not feel the landing would have caused any damage.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage. The separated main landing gear leg assembly was recovered and secured for future examination.

FARGO (KFGO) - A pilot and three passengers escaped injury Monday evening when their plane was forced to make an emergency landing on the main runway at Hector International Airport in Fargo.

Airport Authority Executive Director Shawn Dobberstein tells KFGO News the Socata TB-21TC departed the Moorhead Airport at 5:03 p.m. A short time later, the pilot determined the landing gear did not work. 

The FAA control tower at Hector Airport confirmed the landing gear problem in a fly-by and the pilot put the plane down on its belly on the north-south runway east of the main terminal at 5:43 p.m. 

All air traffic was diverted to the east-west runway until the disabled plane could be removed from the runway which took about 90 minutues.

Dobberstein says the aircraft had damage to the prop and underside and was hauled to a hanger at the Fargo Jet Center for later investigation.

Belize: Suspected Drug Plane



Belizean authorities are investigating the remnants of a burnt aircraft discovered off the Coastal Road. 

The airplane was found in a remote area near an illegal landing strip. 

Police say that they are unable to say if the aircraft was being used to carry illicit cargo such as drugs.
