Location: Shreveport, LA
Accident Number: CEN18LA281
Date & Time: 07/19/2018, 0802 CDT
Registration: N7080F
Aircraft: PIPER PA28
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 19, 2018, about 0802 central standard time, a Piper PA28A, N7080, registered to a private individual, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing after a loss of engine power near the Shreveport Executive Airport (DTN), Shreveport, Louisiana. The commercial pilot, who was the sole occupant was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a flight plan was not filed. The post-maintenance check flight was being conducted under the provisions of Federal Code of Regulations Part 91. The flight originated about 0730 from DTN.

The airplane had just completed an annual inspection on July 18, 2018, and the purpose of the flight was a post-maintenance check flight. According to the pilot, after takeoff from the DTN airport, he stayed in the local traffic pattern and performed two touch and go landings. He proceeded north of the airport and climbed through 2,500 feet. He stated that the airplane could not attain more than 300-foot per minute rate of climb without losing airspeed, and noticed a decrease in engine RPM's. Oil pressure and oil temperature were in the normal operating range, the vacuum gauge indicated "zero" and gyroscopic instruments began to drift and tumble. The pilot proceeded directly for DTN and set up for a landing on runway 14. On final, the engine RPM's decreased and the aircraft slowed. The engine did not respond to throttle inputs and the pilot was forced to land the airplane on a river levy. The aircraft bounced into the air and came back down, contacted a road, and came to rest against the perimeter fence of runway 14.

Initial inspection of the engine revealed that the output shaft of the vacuum pump was sheared. The wreckage was moved to a secure location for further inspection.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, pilot Jacob Havens flew out of Cincinnati earlier today to meet with friends at the Zanesville airport. Havens said he was flying an experimental aircraft built for one and was heading back to the airport when the plane started to lose power.

“On the way back to the airport I lost about half of my power on the aircraft,” Havens said. “So I did a 360 to land on this road right behind us here and had too much energy when I came in to land, there’s not a lot of other options out here so I just continued into the corn.”

Havens said he was trapped in the plane until first responders were able to rescue him.

“The aircraft was on top of me until, until they rescued me. I wasn’t pinned, I was able to move inside of the cockpit, but it was surrounding me so I couldn’t get out,” Havens said.

Havens said he was not injured.  The Federal Aviation Administration is as sitting with the investigation into the accident.  The Highway Patrol is recognizing the efforts of Perry, Washington and New Concord Volunteer firefighters in locating the plane wreckage.

ZANESVILLE - Jacob Havens has been a pilot for seven years, but had a scare on Thursday afternoon.

Havens was flying solo in an experimental aircraft, a Quickie Q1, when he started losing power in the cockpit and eventually crashed in a cornfield near the area of Norfield and Sonora roads just before 4 p.m. Thursday.

His engine failed about three miles north of the airport, and Havens was forced to crash land in the field after losing all power.

Havens, who is from Findlay and lives in the Cincinnati area, was restrained after his plane flipped over. Emergency crews freed him, and Havens was checked by medical personnel at the scene and released.

This was the first incident Havens has experienced as a pilot. A friend from the Zanesville area was piloting another aircraft taking photos of Haven's plane when it lost power. The second plane landed at the airport without incident.

"When I started losing power, I tried to make a beeline to the airport," Havens said. "It kept dropping RPMs so I did a 360 and tried to land on the road. But, my energy carried me into the field."

Havens did not have insurance on the plane.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeffrey Jirles said the plane is a total loss. It will be recovered from cornfield on Friday, and the Federal Aviation Administration will examine it.

"It was a short search as a local pilot helped us find it," Jirles said. "(The aircraft) is well off the main road and makes the recovery difficult."

Perry and Washington Township as well as New Concord fire departments assisted at the scene. The crash remains under investigation by the Ohio State Patrol, with assistance from the FAA.

This was the second plane crash in this area so far this year.

A plane traveling from Elyria, Ohio to Deland, Florida crashed in Coshocton County in April. The Zanesville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said pilot Edward Zezlina, 67, and passenger Linda O-Brien, 71, of Grafton, died after their plane crashed about five miles west of Blissfied. The owner of the property where the crash happened said his wife heard an engine noise followed by the crash. The wreckage was discovered a couple of hours.

On July 19, 2018, about 0950 mountain daylight time, a Cub Crafters Inc. CC19-180 airplane, N70DD, impacted terrain during a forced landing following a loss of engine power near Hyrum, Utah. The airline transport pilot sustained serious injuries, and the airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings and fuselage.

The pilot reported that during cruise flight over mountainous terrain, the engine began to lose power. After he turned the electric fuel pump on, he noticed a slight increase in power, however, the engine lost all power shortly afterward. The pilot stated that he initiated an off-airport landing to a nearby opening, however, when he realized that he was unable to make it, he maneuvered toward another area suitable for landing. Subsequently, the airplane impacted trees and terrain before it came to rest upright.

The wreckage of the airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.

HYRUM, Cache County — A 40-year-old Utah pilot was hospitalized Thursday with injuries he suffered when his single-engine plane crashed in Blacksmith Fork Canyon.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, sustained injuries to his legs, arms and face. He was conscious at the time a medical helicopter arrived and took him to a hospital on the Wasatch Front, said Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen.

No one else was in the plane when it crashed.

The crash occurred in a rugged, heavily wooded area near Hardware Ranch, east of Hyrum about 10:15 a.m. Thursday, according to Jensen.

He said the pilot never called in for help. Another pilot saw it go down and told authorities.

"The only way we got notified was from the other pilot who had witnessed the crash," Jensen said. The plane remained mostly intact, but had a broken wing.

Investigators could not immediately pinpoint a cause. Jensen said the Federal Aviation Administration was made aware and planned to send representatives to the scene.

Jensen said he did not know the plane's destination.
