Schempp-Hirth Discus-2B, N917WV: Incident occurred May 25, 2018 in Worth County, Iowa

http://registry.faa.gov/N917WV



WORTH COUNTY, Iowa – A glider has to make an emergency landing in North Iowa Friday evening.

It came down in a farm field just east of Interstate 35 near the exit to the Diamond Jo Casino.

The pilot needed to get out of the way of stormy weather and made a soft landing without any injury.

Stephen Nesser of St. Paul was piloting the glider, he is participating in the Albert Lea Region 7 Glider Competition this weekend.

While first responders say they don't often get calls for plane crashes, or gliders in a field, Nesser said this is probably his eighth or nineth time landing in a field.

He said he was aiming for a field, he did miss judge the landing just a little.

"I was going to land in another field and I realized the only road is I-35 and you can't get a car there," he said. "So I changed my route.  I was getting low. I thought  that green strip was a road and it will be easy to get a car there, but unfortunately it wasn't a road."

Those with the Worth County Sheriff's Office say the glider was not damaged; however, there was an unknown amount of damage caused to the crop in the field. Those who own the land say they will not be able to estimate the damage for a couple of weeks.

ROY — As federal officials investigate a weekend plane crash, the two occupants of the aircraft are continuing their recoveries.

The Piper single-engine aircraft crashed about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, hitting a billboard next to I-15 in Roy about a half-mile southwest of Ogden-Hinckley Airport shortly after taking off.

Two people on board were critically injured. A third person who tried to help the victims was also taken to local hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Several people on social media have identified one of the victims as Bryce Ransom. He suffered multiple broken bones, including both ankles, his sternum, ribs, nose, hand and knee, according to a GoFundMe fundraiser* set up for him.

Ransom has two children and his wife is due to give birth to their third child any day, according to friends on Facebook.

The name of the other victim was not immediately released.

The tail number on the plane is the same as a plane that was forced to make an emergency landing on I-15 near Ogden in May 2018.

In that incident, a flight instructor and a student were in the plane when it experienced a mechanical issue, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The instructor made the decision to land on the freeway, and hit a car while landing. No one was injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Security Administration will investigate Sunday’s crash.

OGDEN — A small plane made an emergency landing on the freeway Saturday in Weber County.

Officials said the Piper PA-28R-180 Arrow departed Ogden-Hinckley Regional Airport just before 8 a.m. and was forced to make an emergency landing on Interstate 15 at 5600 South. Local authorities said there were two people onboard the single-engine plane.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a 19-year old flight instructor was with a student when the aircraft experienced a mechanical issue. It was then the instructor made a bold decision to land the distressed aircraft in the southbound lanes of the freeway, explained Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Andy Battenfield.

"The female instructor took control of the plane and flew under the Riverdale Road bridge structure," he said. "While landing, she struck 2004 Toyota Camry with four occupants."

He noted the aircraft’s wing struck and shattered the rear window of the vehicle, but no injuries were reported. Damage to the plane and the car were minimal, he said.

The roadway was blocked for about 90 minutes. Officials are investigating what prompted the aircraft to have to make the impromptu landing.

RIVERDALE – No injuries were reported after a small airplane made an emergency landing on I-15 southbound in Riverdale Saturday morning.

According to Utah Highway Patrol, a 19-year-old female flight instructor was forced to bring the plane down just before 8 a.m. on the freeway near milepost 339 shortly after take off.

In audio obtained by Fox 13, the pilot can be heard speaking to the control tower at Ogden-Hinckley Airport.

“…the freeway, going down,” the pilot said. “Now we’re on the freeway… we’re going to need some help getting off the freeway.”

The plane took off from the Ogden-Hinckley Airport but the pilot says she was forced to bring it down when it suffered  “a loss of power.”

“After takeoff we were not climbing and we started to descend and so we did emergency gear down and hit the runway… uh, not the runway I hit the road,” the pilot said in the recording.

UHP says the plane did collide with one vehicle but no injuries have been reported.

“None in the airplane, we don’t know if we hit a car,” the pilot told control in the recording. “We don’t believe so, we just think we hit hard. But we’re going to need some help.”

According to UDOT right lanes were closed following the incident but have since been reopened.

UHP reports the plane was taken back to the Ogden-Hinckley Airport in good condition.

On May 26, 2018, about 0935 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 152 airplane, N152GB, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a partial loss of engine power while performing a go around at the Hillsboro-Portland Airport (HIO), Hillsboro, Oregon. The certified flight instructor and student pilot receiving instruction were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Hillsboro Aero Academy LLC. under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The local flight originated from HIO at 15 minutes before the accident.

The flight instructor reported that during their third touch-and-go landing on runway 31R, the student pilot initiated a go-around. Shortly after applying power, the engine began to run rough, backfire, and partially lose power. The flight instructor verified that the mixture was rich and that the carburetor heat was off. Unable to restore full engine power, the flight instructor initiated a forced landing to the remaining portion of the runway. During the landing roll, the airplane overran the departure end of runway 31R and nosed over.

Post-accident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that both wings were structurally damaged. The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.

Jim was a kind, compassionate man, strong in his faith, always putting God first. He adored his family and had a passion for aviation and history. His love of aviation was enriched with a career spanning over 35 years of flying experience. Being an avid history buff and experienced pilot allowed him to share the unique history of New Orleans during his aerial tours. This chapter of his aviation career awarded him several 4 star reviews. Nothing brought Jim more joy than to spend time with his friends and family and to pilot a plane. 


Brianna Davis and Reginald Hillard Jr.


Brianna Davis bought her boyfriend Reginald Hillard Jr. a trip in a Cessna 172R for his birthday so could see what New Orleans looked like from the sky. Hillard was terrified of flying, but he didn’t want to pass up the experience and he was willing to take the challenge to make his girlfriend happy. While they were up in the air it started to rain. The plane impacted the water, Hillard pushed Davis out of the plane into Lake Pontchartrain. Davis was the only survivor, and a private yacht picked her up and took her to a hospital.

Location: New Orleans, LA
Accident Number: CEN16LA338
Date & Time: 08/27/2016, 2015 CDT
Registration: N984RA
Aircraft: CESSNA 172
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Controlled flight into terr/obj (CFIT)
Injuries: 2 Fatal, 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Business - Sightseeing 

On August 27, 2016, about 2015 central daylight time, a Cessna 172R airplane, N984RA, impacted the waters Lake Pontchartrain during a visual approach to the Lakefront Airport (NEW), New Orleans, Louisiana. The pilot and one passenger were fatally injured; a second passenger received minor injuries. The airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to Christiansen Aviation, Inc., and operated by Flight Academy of New Orleans, doing business as New Orleans Aerial Air Tours, under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a local sightseeing tour flight. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and the airplane was not on a flight plan, which departed NEW at 1930. 

According to the operator, one of the passengers purchased tickets for a 45-minute tour flight for two people, which was scheduled for a 1930 departure.

The surviving passenger reported that she and the other passenger were in the rear seats, with pilot in the left front seat, and that everything on the flight appeared normal. At the end of the flight as they neared the airport, it started to rain. She could not see much out of the windshield; however, the pilot pointed out four red lights ahead of the airplane and stated that that was the airport. She added that the pilot was "straining" to look above the dash and outside the windshield. Looking out the side window, she could see water below and stated that the airplane was "4 to 6 feet" above the water.

Shortly thereafter, the airplane impacted water about 1/2 mile from runway 09. The passenger stated in the post-crash interview, that it was still raining when she got to the water's surface. She added that the airplane's engine was running during the time leading up to the impact with water.

A review of radar data revealed the airplane's flight path above and around the city. A review of the airplane's radar track as it approached the airport, showed the airplane was at 900 ft above ground level (agl) about 3.6 miles from the runway. The airplane continued its descent as it approached the airport. The last radar return showed the airplane about 0.6 nautical mile from the airport at an altitude of 100 ft agl. An overlay of the airplane's radar track correlated with weather data revealed that the airplane entered an area of rain showers, as it approached the airport.

Total Injuries: 2 Fatal, 1 Minor
Latitude, Longitude: 30.061667, -90.027500 (est) 

The airplane impacted the waters of Lake Pontchartrain short of runway 09 at NEW. The airplane and occupants were recovered about 3 days later and transported to the shore by barge. The airplane recovery crew performed a flight control continuity check with no anomalies noted.The airplane was disassembled and transported to a secure facility for further examination. An examination was conducted on September 15, 2016, by the National Transportation Safety Board, Federal Aviation Administration, and technical representatives from the engine and airframe manufacturers.

The airplane's forward fuselage and left wing exhibited impact damage. The nose landing gear was pushed aft. Engine damage due to water submersion prevented functional testing of the engine and components; however, the examination did not reveal any abnormalities with the engine or airframe that would have precluded normal operation.

Medical And Pathological Information

The New Orleans Forensic Center, Orleans Parish Coroner's Office, New Orleans, Louisiana conducted an autopsy on the pilot. The cause of death was determined to be, "asphyxia due to drowning."

The FAA Bioaeronautical Sciences Research Laboratory, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, conducted toxicological testing on the pilot. The specimens were not tested for carbon monoxide and cyanide. The test detected ethanol at 0.103 mg/dL in liver and 0.087 mg/dL in muscle. N-propanol, a product of postmortem bacterial action, was also found in liver and muscle. In addition, clomipramine and its metabolite n-desmethylclomipramine were identified in liver and muscle.

Ethanol is the intoxicant commonly found in beer, wine, and liquor. After ingestion, at low doses, it impairs judgment, psychomotor functioning, and vigilance; at higher doses, it can cause coma and death. Ethanol may also be produced in body tissues by microbial activity after death.

Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant used to treat symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It does not carry a warning about operating vehicle or machinery and is not considered directly impairing.
