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.

Injuries: 1 Serious
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.

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 from runway 27 (3,000 ft by 50 ft, turf) 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. The nose landing gear was partially collapsed. The engine and cowling were dislocated downward; the engine mount and firewall were damaged. The top of the cowling exhibited a linear dent and loss of paint consistent with impact from a powerline. The cowling damage appeared to be aligned with a dent and tear in the left wing leading edge near the wing strut attachment point. The fuselage exhibited localized deformation and buckling. Both wings displayed buckling at the wing roots and upward bending near the wing tips.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

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.

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.

Two people were on board a helicopter that crashed after taking off at Olympia Regional Airport in Tumwater on Friday, according to local officials.

Police and fire crews responded to the crash shortly after 9:40 a.m.

The helicopter from NW Helicopters had just taken off on a test flight when it experienced a mechanical issue, according to Ann Cook, the city of Tumwater's communications manager.

The helicopter was 50 to 75 feet off the ground when it lost altitude and crashed in a grass field at the southern end of the airport.
