Date & Time: 07/04/2018, 0930 EDT
Registration: N8314W
Aircraft: Piper PA28
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under:  Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 4, 2018, about 0930 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-28-180, N8314W, was substantially damaged while landing at Thomaston-Upson County Airport (OPN), Thomaston, Georgia. The student pilot was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight, which originated from Griffin-Spalding County Airport (6A2), Griffin, Georgia, around 0900. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

According to the pilot, he performed a preflight inspection of the airplane with no anomalies noted. After departure, he completed one full stop landing at 6A2, before departing for OPN. While on final approach to runway 12, he configured the airplane for landing and lined up with the centerline of the runway. The main landing gear touched down on the runway numbers, and when the nose landing gear contacted the runway, the airplane veered to the left. The pilot attempted to counteract the turn by applying rudder, however, the airplane continued to the left side of the runway. The right wing tip touched the pavement, the propeller struck the runway, and the nose landing gear wheel separated as the airplane continued off the runway. The airplane came to rest about 75 ft off the left side of runway in a grassy area.

Examination of the airplane after the accident revealed that an engine mount was substantially damaged, and the nose landing gear and right wing incurred minor damage during the accident sequence.

The nose wheel tire and attachment assembly were retained for further examination.

MACKINAC COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Update: As of 2:25 p.m. the airport is back open.

The Mackinac Island Airport is closed after an airplane made an emergency landing on the runway.

The privately owned airplane had electrical problems that forced the pilot to make an emergency landing around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to authorities at the Mackinac Island Airport.

The electrical problems also caused the landing gear not to go down, authorities said.

Three people were inside the plane at the time, but no one was injured.

The bottom of the airplane is scraped up and authorities are still trying to get the plane off the runway.

Authorities hope to have the airport re-opened by 2:30 p.m.
