Location: Rosamond, CA
Accident Number: WPR18LA196
Date & Time: 07/14/2018, 1000 PDT
Registration: N43SJ
Aircraft: CASSUTT IIIM
Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 14, 2018, about 1000 Pacific daylight time, a Cassutt IIIM, experimental amateur built airplane, N43SJ, was substantially damaged when it impacted terrain near Rosamond Skypark Airport (L00), Rosamond, California. The private pilot received minor injuries. 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 local flight was originating at the time.

According to the pilot, who also performed the maintenance on the airplane, he completed a preflight inspection of the airplane. He then taxied to runway 26 and accomplished an engine run-up to a static rpm of 2,450 before he took off. The pilot reported that he normally expects to see the airplane achieve about 2,450 rpm during the takeoff roll and between 2,400 and 2,800 rpm during the climb. The engine rpm indicated 2,400 rpm during the takeoff roll, but after the airplane lifted off the ground and approached about 50 ft above ground level (agl), the engine rpm reduced to about 2,180 rpm. He was unsuccessful in regaining the lost power by cycling the fuel/air mixture control before the airplane descended to the ground.

A witness who was near the departure end of runway 26, at the time of the accident, reported that he observed the engine lose power momentarily. The airplane then began a left turn and immediately impacted the ground on the airplane's nose before it came to rest.

The forward fuselage and right wing were substantially damaged. The wreckage was retained for further examination.

BISMARCK — A pilot was injured in a small plane crash Friday evening north of the Vermilion Regional Airport.

Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn said the crash occurred around 6:30 p.m., about 2 miles north of the Vermilion Regional Airport and 2 miles east of Bowman Avenue, near Bismarck.

It involved a single-engine plane with a single occupant, the pilot, who was injured and airlifted to a local hospital, according to Hartshorn and Ted Fisher, director of the Vermilion County Emergency Management Agency.

Hartshorn said Federal Aviation Administration officials were at the airport for the Balloons Over Vermilion festival, and the sheriff's department rushed them to the scene.

Sheriff's department and FAA officials were still at the scene of the crash at 10 p.m. Friday investigating. Hartshorn said he did not know if the plane had taken off from the Vermilion Regional Airport or was heading there.

The plane is believed to be a crop duster, Fisher said.

Warm, wet weather this year has had crop dusters busy applying fungicide to fields.

The crash apparently did not affect the Balloons Over Vermilion festival at the airport, as some visitors there were unaware of the situation and planes were taking off as usual.

A small plane crashed into a soybean field in Bismarck Thursday evening.

According to the Vermilion County Emergency Management Agency Director Ted Fisher, the pilot was injured in the crash and airlifted to the hospital.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

At the time of the crash, FAA agents were just a few miles away at the Vermilion Regional Airport for the Balloons Over Vermilion festival.

None of the festival events were interrupted by the crash.

The Bismarck Fire Department and Vermilion County Sheriff's Department were also on the scene.

BISMARCK, Ill. (WCIA) -- Two days after a plane crash in a Vermilion County field, the name of the owner and where it landed has been released. It happened in a bean field near county roads 2550 North and 2000 East. 

Wade Mead owns the field and leases the land to local farmer Mike Cunningham, who said the plane was crop duster hired by Ceres Solutions. Cunningham said officials told him Saturday the pilot, who was the only person on the plane, broke his leg. No one else was hurt. 

The FAA is investigating the crash and, as of Sunday, the plane was still in the Bismarck field. Cunningham says the damage is minimal but expects it will change when officials remove the plane. He says that should happen in the next couple days.

Aircraft: Bell 47J
Injuries: 1 Serious
Flight Conducted Under:  Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 15, 2018, about 1745 eastern daylight time, a Bell 47J helicopter, N8568F, was destroyed during an in-flight collision with terrain and postaccident fire while maneuvering in the vicinity of the Franklin Flying Field Airport (3FK), Franklin, Indiana. The pilot was seriously injured. The helicopter was registered to Brown County Tours and operated by pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight originated from 3FK about 1615.

A witness reported that the pilot was checking out the helicopter because it had not been flown yet this season. The initial flight appeared to go smoothly. The pilot landed next to the fuel pump and, after shutting down, fueled the helicopter. He noted that the pilot took off again. He did not see the entire flight, but he could hear the helicopter and the engine sounded "smooth." When he next observed the helicopter, the pilot was flying over the fields north of the airport. He stated that the helicopter was about 100 ft above ground level when he observed a "plume of white or grey smoke trailing the helicopter." It subsequently descended into an agricultural field.

The helicopter came to rest upright. The aft portion of the tail boom, including the tail rotor assembly, separated and was located about 30 ft northeast from the main wreckage. The main rotor blades remained attached to the hub and were located with the main wreckage. A postaccident fire consumed a majority of the fuselage structure. The engine sustained thermal damage consistent with the fire.

KEANSBURG - A small plane made a precautionary landing on the beach in Keansburg Friday morning, according to Federal Aviation Administration officials.

The Cessna 172 landed about 10:25 a.m. after the pilot reported engine trouble, according to a tweet from the FAA. Two people were on board the aircraft, and the FAA is investigating.

No one was injured in the landing, according to an officer at the scene who wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the incident.

"I heard air traffic overhead but I thought it was helicopter traffic," said Chris Green, 52, whose Keansburg home is located across the street from the beach. 

By the time Green reached the scene, law enforcement had surrounded the plane. 

"I'm just glad nobody was hurt," Green said. 

The plane is a single-engine, fixed wing aircraft manufactured in 1973. It is co-owned by a Metuchen man, according to its FAA registration.

Aircraft: Cessna 182
Injuries: 1 Serious, 2 Minor
Flight Conducted Under:  Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 13, 2018, about 1800 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 182T, N291CP, was substantially damaged during takeoff from Geneseo Airport (D52), Geneseo, New York. The commercial pilot sustained serious injuries and the two passengers sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated by the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) as a familiarization flight conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the local flight.

The pilot reported that earlier during the day of the accident, he completed a flight from Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC), Rochester, New York, to D52 uneventfully. The purpose of the accident flight was to provide a familiarization flight to two CAP cadets. The pilot showed the cadets a thorough preflight inspection and then started the engine and taxied to runway 23. Prior to takeoff, the pilot performed an engine run-up and verified that all flight controls were free and correct. The pilot then initiated a soft-field takeoff procedure on the bumpy grass runway. The airplane became airborne in ground effect about 45 knots and everything seemed normal as he began to climb out of ground effect at 60 knots. At that time, the nose pitched up abruptly and the pilot pushed the yoke forward as hard as he could while engaging nose down electric elevator trim; however, the airplane continued to climb at an excessive angle of attack and stalled. It subsequently rolled left, descended to the ground and came to rest inverted.

Initial examination of the wreckage by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed damage to both wings and the fuselage. The inspector measured the elevator trim actuator arm, which corresponded to a full nose-down trim position. Due to the disposition of the wreckage, the inspector was unable to document all flight control continuity and the wreckage was retained for further examination.

The recorded weather at ROC, at 1754, included wind from 220° at 7 knots, visibility 10 miles and scattered clouds at 14,000 feet.

The pilot of the plane that crashed at the Geneseo Airport on Friday is still in the hospital with serious injuries. 

On Monday night the Livingston County Sheriff's Office released the unofficial cause of the crash and the identity of the pilot. 

The pilot, 65-year-old Timothy Sheffer, of Rush NY, flew the small plane off the runway but it had problems ascending, causing it to crash and flip over.

Sheffer broke his back. His two teenage passengers, who were 14 and 15-year-old cadets, had minor injuries.

Sheffer and the two cadets were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment. 

The official cause is still under investigation. They were flying a single-engine Cessna 172 for the Civil Air Patrol. It was not associated with the air show.
