Aircraft: Piper PA18
Injuries: 1 Minor, 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On June 29, 2018, about 1307 Alaska daylight time, a float-equipped Piper PA-18 airplane, N7675D, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing following a partial power loss after takeoff at Lake Hood Seaplane Base (LHD), Anchorage, Alaska. The airline transport pilot, who was acting as pilot-in-command (PIC) from the back seat, sustained minor injuries and the pilot rated passenger in the front seat was uninjured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 visual flight rules personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight was destined for a private cabin near Rainy Pass, Alaska, about 100 miles northwest of LHD.

According to the PIC, when the airplane was about 150 ft above ground level (agl) following a departure from the north water lane, the engine began to "sputter" and stopped producing sufficient power to climb. He then turned the airplane to the east to land on runway 14 (gravel) while he "pumped" the throttle and had the passenger check that the fuel selector valve was in the "ON" position. The airplane impacted the grass area between runway 14 and taxiway hotel, just north of H3. The airplane came to rest on a heading of about 070° and sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and wings.

The airplane was removed from the runway and secured for further investigation. A detailed airframe and engine examination is pending.

The airplane was equipped with a Lycoming O-320 series engine.

A small float plane crashed as it took off from Anchorage's Lake Hood Seaplane Base on Friday, according to officials.

Initial investigations showed that the plane, a Piper PA-18 Super Cub, was departing Lake Hood when it lost engine power, said Clint Johnson, chief of the National Transportation Safety Board Alaska Region.

The float plane took off from the water and headed north, Johnson said.

When the engine lost power, the pilot tried to make an emergency landing at Lake Hood's air strip, but didn't quite make it, landing instead in the grass next to the runway, Johnson said.

Two people on board suffered minor injuries, Johnson said. The National Transportation Safety Board was notified of the crash around 1:45 p.m. Friday.

The plane's wings and floats sustained significant damage, said sergeant Daniel Nowak with Anchorage Airport Police and Fire.

The Anchorage Fire Department responded and the two occupants of the plane declined medical treatment, Nowak said. The pilot was later taken to the hospital, according to Johnson.

Johnson didn't have additional details on Friday afternoon, including where the plane was heading when it crashed. An NTSB investigator was en route to the scene on Friday afternoon, he said.

As of 2:45 p.m., the Lake Hood air strip remained shut down, Nowak said.

Emergency crews and investigators responded Friday to a plane crash at the Lake Hood airstrip in Anchorage.

Clint Johnson, the National Transportation Safety Board’s Alaska chief, said the crash involved "substantial damage but minor injuries."

Trudy Wassel, a Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport spokeswoman, said the crash was reported shortly before 1:30 p.m.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the Piper PA 18 Supercub was taking off from the water when the plane lost engine power. The pilot, who has not yet been identified, was able to turn the aircraft around and attempted to land at the airstrip but landed in a grassy area. 

The pilot sustained a minor leg injury, the NTSB says; the passenger was not injured. There were only two people onboard at the time of the incident. 

"A light aircraft did go down next to the strip," Wassel said. "The pilot did exit the aircraft."

The same airstrip was the site of a June 13 landing by midair collision survivor Bruce Markwood, after Wasilla pilot James Poelman crashed into the Susitna River and died.

Last week, a floatplane ran aground with damage but no injuries during a landing on the lake.

Aircraft: Cessna 182
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Landing gear collapse
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

The pilot reported that rain showers were present in the vicinity of his destination airport, so he diverted and landed at a nearby airport. During the approach, the pilot felt the airplane was being pushed forward and saw an increase in indicated airspeed and nose down attitude. He continued the approach and upon touchdown, the airplane landed hard on the nosewheel first and after a subsequent bounce, he initiated a go-around. He then re-entered the pattern, approached the same runway and upon touchdown, the nose landing gear collapsed, and airplane exited the runway to the left into a ditch.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the nose landing gear tunnel.

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

The automated weather observation station located on the airport reported that, about 7 minutes prior to the accident, the wind was from 100° at 7 knots. The airplane landed on runway 32.

The pilot added that he believed the airplane's nose landing gear was damage during the initial landing. He further stated that, after landing, the windsock was discovered to be damaged, and not indicating wind direction properly. However, the airport's AWOS was accessible by aircraft radio.

According to the pilot in the retractable landing gear-equipped airplane, he did not extend the landing gear prior to landing. He reported that he became distracted while communicating with other aircraft and controlling the airplane in the gusting wind conditions. Further, he did not realize that what he perceived as the stall warning horn, was the landing gear unsafe warning horn.

Additionally, he reported that the accident could have been prevented by repeating his GUMPFS checklist on final and checking to ensure that the three green landing gear safe lights were illuminated.

The airplane sustained substantial damage the lower fuselage bulkheads and spar carry-through.

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

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

On June 30, 2018, about 1155 central daylight time, a Cessna 337F, N107BL, a multiengine centerline thrust airplane, was substantially damaged when it struck trees and a fence during a forced landing about one mile southeast of Vinland Valley Aerodrome (K64), Baldwin City, Kansas. The commercial pilot was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Vinland Aerodrome, Baldwin City, Kansas, under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and no flight plan had been filed for the local personal flight.

According to the pilot, who is also an airframe and powerplant (A&P) mechanic, he took off and climbed to 3,500 ft to practice single-engine operations. He shut down the rear engine and feathered the propeller. After doing some air work, the pilot attempted to unfeather the propeller and restart the rear engine but was unsuccessful. He returned to the airport and made a single-engine landing approach.

During the approach, the pilot noticed [he had lost his] full flap down setting and determined a full stop landing on the grass runway was going to be close. He reduced flaps to 10°. The flap setting "relaxed" and the pilot determined there was insufficient altitude available to retract the landing gear. The pilot maneuvered to avoid houses and made a forced landing in a crosswind. Full power and full flaps were used until touchdown. The airplane struck small trees, shrubs, and a fence. The left wing was bent and the fuselage was buckled.

The rear engine propeller has a remote hydraulic accumulator that assists in unfeathering the propeller and is serviced to 120 psi. During annual inspection 4 hours prior to the accident flight, it was found to be slightly low. Post-accident examination revealed the pressure to be 85 psi. It is most likely a nitrogen leakage had developed during those 4 hours. The leakage should have been detected during the pre-takeoff check. The flap switch not holding position was most likely due to a loss of tension in the flap switch pivot, allowing the switch to move with aircraft vibration.
