Location: Sarasota, FL
Accident Number: ERA15LA380
Date & Time: 09/27/2015, 1906 EDT
Registration: N622PG
Aircraft: CESSNA 550
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Runway excursion
Injuries: 2 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

On September 27, 2015, about 1906 eastern daylight time, a privately owned and operated Cessna 550, N622PG, was substantially damaged during a runway excursion after landing at the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ), Sarasota, Florida. The airline transport pilot and the passenger sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules flight plan was filed for the personal flight, which was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The flight departed Boca Raton Airport (BCT), Boca Raton, Florida, about 1827.

The owner of the airplane stated he had been receiving flight instruction from the pilot, and in return he offered to let the pilot borrow the airplane.

The pilot stated that, at the conclusion of the flight, he approached the destination airport and calculated that the landing distance required was "between 2,010 and 2,100 feet." After an uneventful flare, the airplane touched down on runway 22 "shortly after" the runway numbers. After touchdown, the pilot immediately deployed the speed brakes, brakes, and thrust reversers. The pilot said the airplane had slowed to 60 knots at the intersection of runway 14-32, about 3,000 ft from the threshold of runway 22, so he put the thrust reversers in idle reverse. He had considered exiting at taxiway A, which was about 400 feet past the intersection of the two runways but felt it would have required maximum braking. The pilot said he then amended his plan and decided to exit the runway onto taxiway D at the departure end of runway 22, about 2,000 feet beyond the runway intersection. He stated during this time, between taxiway A and D, he held his feet off the brakes, estimating the airplane speed was 20-23 knots. He retracted the flaps, speed brakes, and the thrust reversers. He reported that, as the airplane approached taxiway D, he applied brakes and commented to the passenger, "we have no brakes." He pumped the brakes, then redeployed the speed brakes and thrust reversers and applied the emergency brake.

Air traffic controllers in the SRQ tower stated that the airplane touched down in "the vicinity of the aiming point," and that after touchdown they "noticed that they might be a bit fast." The accident sequence was captured by surveillance cameras and a review of the video showed the airplane touched down approximately abeam the B1 taxiway, 1,700 feet beyond the approach end of the runway, and that the thrust reversers were not deployed during the recorded portion of the landing roll.

Runway 04/22 at SQR was 5,009 ft long and 150 ft wide; runway 14/32 at SQR was 9,500 ft long and 150 ft wide. Taxiway B was 1,700 feet from the threshold of runway 22, taxiway A was 3,400 feet from the threshold of runway 22. Taxiway A was about 1,600 ft from taxiway D and the departure end of the runway.

Postaccident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector and an airframe and powerplant mechanic revealed a puncture in the pressure vessel aft of the nose landing gear and damage to the bulkhead belly stringers. Functional testing of the brakes showed that they were operational and did not reveal evidence any pre- or post-impact mechanical anomalies. According to photographs and diagrams prepared by airport management, skid marks that aligned directly with the airplane's tire tracks in the grass began 1,130 feet prior to the departure end of the runway, just past taxiway A.

The pilot held an airline transport pilot certificate with type ratings for Cessna CE-500 and CE-525 airplanes. His most recent FAA second-class medical certificate was issued on March 18, 2015. Review of flight experience documents provided by the pilot's attorney revealed that the pilot reported 4075 hours of flight experience, of which 1,713 were in turbine-powered airplanes.

The 7-seat, low-wing airplane was manufactured in 1978, was powered by two Pratt and Whitney JT15D-4 turbofan engines, and was certified as a two-pilot airplane. Its most recent Phase 1-5 inspections were completed May 29, 2015 at 9,212.9 total aircraft hours. The airplane accrued 52.6 hours since that date.

At 1853, the weather reported at SRQ included few clouds at 2,220 and 3,100 feet, calm wind, and 10 miles visibility. The temperature was 27°C, the dewpoint was 25°C, and the altimeter setting was 29.89 inches of mercury.

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -  Law enforcement responded to a small plane crash Friday on the east side of Longview.

The aircraft went down in a field off Page Road sometime before 8 a.m.

The plane was a single-engine Luscombe 8A, according to Lynn Lunsford with the Federal Aviation Administration. Lunsford said initial reports are that two people on board suffered minor injuries.It is unclear at this point what led to the crash and it remains under investigation.

The Texas Department of Public Safety later identified the pilot as Randall Coggin, 74, of Longview, and the passenger as Coby Melvin, 67, of Longview.

Both were treated and released at the scene.

DPS reports that Coggin "advised that he had made repairs to the plane and was testing it when he experienced engine failure and made a hard landing."

The aircraft took off about 2 miles from the crash site.

The NTSB and FAA are investigating the crash.

Story and video ➤ http://www.kltv.com










Two men walked away from a plane crash Friday morning after the aircraft went down near a northeast Longview neighborhood.

Longview police and fire crews responded to the scene of the crash shortly after 7:30 a.m. in the Mission Creek subdivision south of Page Road between Alpine Road and East Loop 281.

“We are on the scene of a small plane crash,” Fire Chief J.P. Steelman said shortly after crews responded to the crash.

He said both occupants of the plane exited it on their own. Texas Department of Public Safety crews also responded and were investigating.

DPS spokeswoman Jean Dark said the pilot was Randall Coggin, 74, of Longview. She said he told officials he had made repairs to the aircraft and was testing it when he experienced engine failure and made a hard landing.

The aircraft took off from a private runway at Eastside Airport about 2 miles from the crash site, Dark said.

According to Dark, Coggin and his passenger, Coby Melvin, 67, of Longview, were treated at the scene.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane is a Silvaire Luscombe 8A fixed-wing single-engine that is registered to John D. Stewart of Longview.

Officials from the National Transportation Safety Board and FAA were headed to the scene for further investigation, Dark said.

At 9:09 a.m. Friday, Steelman said Longview police and fire personnel had left scene, while Texas Department of Public Safety officers from Harrison County remained at the crash site.

The crash is the second such incident in the city potentially involving Eastside Airport in about as many years.

On March 18, 2016, a plane that had taken off from the airport crashed in a wooded area north of East Marshall Avenue, injuring the pilot.

Aircraft: CESSNA 210
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On June 1, 2018, about 1118 Pacific daylight time, a retractable landing gear-equipped Cessna 210 airplane, N9410M, sustained substantial damage after a main landing gear collapsed during a landing at Ramona Airport (RNM), Ramona, California. The private pilot and passenger were uninjured. The airplane was registered to a private individual and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a visual flight rules personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight departed Alexander Municipal Airport (E80), Belen, New Mexico, about 0830 mountain daylight time.

During an interview with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge, the pilot stated that while approaching RNM, he selected the landing gear handle to the down position; however, the green gear down light did not illuminate and the main landing gear did not lock in the down position. He then selected the landing gear handle up and the landing gear did not retract. He maneuvered to the north of the airport and attempted to manually pump the landing gear down with the emergency hand pump. The pilot stated that the handle was very difficult to move and after several pumps it would not move at all. He utilized an airframe mounted mirror to visually check that the left landing gear was in the down position, and then conducted a visual approach and landing to runway 27.

During the landing, the right main landing gear collapsed and the airplane veered to the right and departed the runway surface, coming to rest on the parallel taxiway. During the accident sequence, the right wing and horizontal stabilizer impacted the ground, resulting in substantial damage to the right horizontal stabilizer and elevator.

The airplane was removed from the runway and secured for further investigation.
