Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On May 27, 2018, about 1420 mountain daylight time, a Cessna 182 airplane, N5700B, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a loss of engine power near Aberdeen, Idaho. The commercial pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The cross-country flight originated from the Reno-Stead Airport, Reno, Nevada, at 1000 Pacific daylight time with an intended destination of Blackfoot, Idaho.

The pilot reported that during cruise flight, they encountered deteriorating weather along their route and decided to initiate a 180° turn to the right toward Pocatello, Idaho, at an altitude of about 2,000 feet above ground level. As the turn was completed, the engine began to sputter and partially lose power. The pilot stated that he established best glide speed while troubleshooting the engine by advancing the mixture to full rich and verifying the fuel selector valve was set to both. Despite his attempts, the engine would not regain power and he initiated a forced landing to a freshly plowed field. During the landing roll, the nose gear of the airplane dug into the dirt and the airplane nosed over.

Examination of the airplane by the pilot revealed that the vertical stabilizer, rudder, and fuselage were substantially damaged. The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.

Analysis 

According to the student pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane, he had completed a cross-country flight and aborted the first landing due to crosswind gusts from the left. He also aborted the second landing, but on his third approach about 60 knots, he committed to the landing. Just before touching down, the airplane encountered a left crosswind gust and then touched down oriented 10° left of the runway heading and bounced. The airplane veered right and exited the right side of the runway. He added full power and aborted the landing, but the airspeed was too slow. The airplane remained airborne for 150 ft, landed in a dirt field, and nosed over.

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

The student reported that, at the time of the accident, "winds were out of the NW at approximately 11 mph (as indicated by my Garmin Pilot app) with a 6 mph crosswind from the West and gusting." The airplane landed on runway 31.

The nearest METAR, which was 6 miles southwest of the accident site, reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 300° at 10 knots.

The student reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures 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 student pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing with a crosswind and his subsequent failure to maintain airspeed during an aborted landing, which resulted in a collision with terrain and nose-over.

Findings

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Glider Tow 

On May 27, 2018, about 1815 central daylight time, a Cessna 150L airplane, N19366, was substantially damaged during an in-flight collision with power lines and terrain after an attempted go-around at the Sky Soaring Airport (55LL), Union, Illinois. The pilot sustained serious injuries. The airplane was registered to and operated by Sky Soaring Inc. as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 glider tow flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight originated from 55LL about 1800.

The pilot had completed five glider tow flights during the afternoon. He took a break about 1700 before completing two additional glider tow flights. The initial six tow flights were completed without incident. The accident flight was conducted to 2,000 feet and the glider released without incident.

The pilot recalled that during his return to the airport for landing "something was wrong." Although there was plenty of daylight, he stated that it seemed to "get dark." The airplane was high on the approach and he angled away from the runway to lose some altitude. He recalled continuing inbound but was unsure of the airspeed or altitude as the airplane crossed the threshold. He commented that there might have been some residual engine power on; however, he did not recall verifying that the throttle was at idle. The airplane was heading west into the sun and he aimed for an opening in the trees off the end of the runway. He did not see the power lines until it was too late. He recalled a "blue flash" and his next recollection was being treated by paramedics after the accident.

The pilot recalled not having an "aviation related thought" as the airplane "bounced down the field," and noted that heat exhaustion or dehydration might have been responsible. He added that he had not had such an event, where things seemed to "get dark," either before or since the accident. He did not perceive any issues with the airplane during the accident flight.

A witness reported that the pilot was returning from a glider tow flight at the time of the accident. The pilot had executed a go-around and was climbing out when the airplane impacted powerlines about 600 ft from the end of the runway.

The airplane came to rest upright in an agricultural field about 200 ft from the power lines. A postaccident examination of the airframe and engine did not reveal any anomalies consistent with a preimpact failure or malfunction.

A review of the pilot's medical records revealed that he had reported several medical conditions to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), including non-obstructive coronary artery disease, hypertension, and atrial fibrillation. After review of additional information, the FAA issued a special issuance medical certificate with a requirement to wear distant vision corrective lenses and to have near vision corrective lenses available. The certificate was not valid for any class after June 30, 2013. The pilot had subsequently completed the requirements for certification under BasicMed on August 24, 2017. His BasicMed certification was valid at the time of the accident.

During his postaccident treatment for multiple traumatic injuries, the pilot developed episodes of recurrent atrial fibrillation associated with low blood pressure. He was unaware of any palpitations during the atrial fibrillation episodes but did "feel bad" which was thought to be related to the low blood pressure.

The pilot reported that, while enroute, the airplane's engine began to run rough and lose power. He immediately turned toward the nearest airport and slowed the airplane to 100 knots. He added that he pushed the mixture to full rich, which caused a short burst of power that lasted just a few seconds. He then pumped the throttle and applied carburetor heat, but then realized he did not have enough altitude to make the airport and began to look for an alternate landing site.

He further added, that after locating a ridge top field, he slowed the airplane to 75 knots and pulled one notch of flaps and trimmed for landing. As he lined the airplane up with the field he pulled full flaps at about 300 ft above the ground. The touchdown was smooth and the airplane continued the landing roll in wheat that was approximately 3 ft tall. Subsequently, the right wing struck an industrial irrigation nozzle and the right wing separated from the fuselage.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing and stabilator.

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

The pilot added that, during the engine failure, he did not attempt to change fuel tanks from the empty right wing fuel tank, and as a recommendation to make the fuel selector check the first part of the restart procedure.

The Federal Aviation Administration inspector reported that, while on scene, he was able to run the engine. He added, the left tank was approximately ½ full of fuel. He switched the fuel selector to the left tank and started the engine normally. The oil pressure was fine; fuel pressure normal on both the electric pump and engine driven pump; and the magnetos checked fine.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On May 28, 2018, about 1300 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna T182T airplane, N68AX, sustained substantial damage following a loss of directional control, a runway excursion and nose over while landing at Yerington Municipal Airport (O43), Yerington, Nevada. The airplane was registered to M & B Holdings, LLC and operated by the pilot as a visual flight rules flight under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The private pilot and pilot rated passenger sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.

According to the pilot, after conducting multiple uneventful landings at O43 they were returning for a full stop landing. He reported that the touchdown on the main wheels was normal, but immediately after the nose wheel contacted the landing surface the airplane veered sharply to the left, exited the improved runway surface and encountered an area of soft sand. The nose wheel separated from fuselage and the airplane subsequently nosed over sustaining substantial damage to the fuselage, vertical stabilizer and rudder.

The closest weather reporting facility was Minden-Tahoe Airport (KMEV), Minden, Nevada, about 28 miles west of the accident site. At 1253, an METAR from KMEV was reporting, in part: wind from 30 °at 8 knots; visibility, 10 statute miles; clouds and sky condition, clear; temperature, 66 °F; dew point 39° F; altimeter, 30.19 inches of mercury.

Date & Time: 05/26/2018, 1230 EDT
Registration: N47DV
Aircraft: DEVRIES WM H KITFOX SPORT
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On May 26, 2018, about 1230 eastern daylight time, an experimental, amateur-built Kitfox Sport, N47DV, was substantially damaged during a forced landing near Taghkanic, New York. The private pilot and passenger were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The flight originated from Hudson Valley Regional Airport (POU), Poughkeepsie, New York, at 1215.

The pilot reported that he was en route to his home airport when the airplane experienced a total loss of engine power during cruise flight. He saw a cow pasture and selected it as an emergency landing area. During the landing roll, the landing gear separated from the fuselage. The airplane "spun 180 degrees" before coming to a stop, at which time the pilot and passenger exited the airplane.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the fuselage and wings were buckled. The airplane was recovered from the accident site and retained for further examination.

TAGHKANIC — Two people were uninjured when their single-engine airplane crashed Saturday afternoon in Columbia County, the sheriff's office said Tuesday.

The aircraft crashed at 4:42 p.m. into a grassy farm field on Koeppe Road in Taghkanic, the sheriff's office said.

The pilot radioed authorities at about 12:30 p.m. to report his engine was stalling and would not restart, so he was planning an emergency landing. When the aircraft touched down, the uneven ground ripped off the landing gear and the plane spun 180 degrees, deputies said.

The single-engine prop and belly of the two-passenger airplane were also damaged.

The pilot — 54-year-old Roger Tryon of Monterey, Mass. — and his passenger — 53-year-old Steve Snyder of Monterey, Mass. — were not injured.

Tryon was flying from Dutchess County Airport to the Great Barrington Massachusetts Airport when he was forced to land, deputies said. The investigation has been turned over to the Federal Aviation Administration.

TAGHKANIC – Two Massachusetts men were uninjured after their plane had to make an emergency landing in a farmer’s field Saturday, according to police.

Roger Tryon, 54, and Steve Snyder, 53, both of Monterey, Massachusetts, were inside a single-engine airplane when the engine stalled at about 12:30 p.m. and the pilot, Tryon, had to make an emergency landing in a grassy field off of Koeppe Road, according to a statement from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.

The men were on their way from the Hudson Valley Regional Airport in Wappingers Falls to the Great Barrington Airport in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, when the plane started to sputter, according to police.

Tryon told deputies his engine stalled and it would not restart, according to police. As the plane dived toward the ground, it lost its landing gear, including its wheels, which caused the plane to make what’s considered a “pancake landing,” police said.

The left wing of the plane struck the ground, spinning the plane 180 degrees. The plane’s engine and belly were damaged as a result of the quick landing, but Tryon and Snyder were unharmed, according to police.

The sheriff’s office turned over the investigation to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilot reported that, while maneuvering at a low altitude, about 100 ft., during a left turn the powered parachute descended about 20 ft. He applied full throttle to gain altitude, but the climb rate was too low to clear trees. Subsequently, the powered parachute impacted the trees and came to rest suspended in a tree about 6 ft above the ground.

The powered parachute sustained substantial damage to the left steering bar.

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