Salvaging the wreckage of a UH-60M Blackhawk helicopter that crashed last month while transporting a patient from Orchid Island (Lanyu) could take two to three months, Aviation Safety Council Chairman Hwung Hwung-hweng told lawmakers yesterday.

Hwung was at a meeting of the legislature’s Transportation Committee to brief it about the council’s plans for this year, but Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Cheng Pao-ching brought up the effort to salvage the National Airborne Service Corp helicopter.

The helicopter disappeared on Feb. 5 after taking off from Lanyu Airport on Orchid Island with six people aboard: three crew, an emergency medical technician, the patient and a family member of the patient. Their bodies have not been found.

Hwung said the council has detected wreckage in the sea and the Ministry of the Interior, which overseas the corp, has hired a contractor to salvage it.

The salvage operation could take two to three months, he said.

The wreckage was located 1,000m below sea level and special equipment is needed for such a recovery operation.

“It would be difficult to twist and maneuver the cables to retrieve the wreckage under such great pressure,” Hwung said, adding that Japan and Singapore have the technology needed to salvage wreckages on the high seas.

It is not clear whether Taiwanese operators could manage such an operation, Hwung said.

DPP Legislator Lin Chun-hsien said that the government should acquire the capacity to conduct high seas salvage operations.

As Taiwan is surrounded by sea, aircraft are more likely to crash on the water than land, he said.

Cheng also suggested the government move Lanyu Airport from the northwestern half of the island to the east.

Aircraft departing the airport often need to deal with wind shear, he said.

The airport is also not equipped with auxiliary facilities to enhance nighttime visibility, Cheng said.

The Civil Aeronautics Administration needs to address such safety risks, Cheng said.

SMITHFIELD, Rhode Island  — A pilot was forced to make a hard landing at the North Central Airport in Smithfield.

The incident happened around 11 a.m. Saturday at the airfield on Jenckes Hill Road.

NBC 10 News spoke with another pilot who saw the entire thing unfold.

"I was in the traffic pattern landing at North Central,” said Jon Pascua, an EMS/firefighter in Coventry.

And that's when Pascua noticed the plane in front of him flying extremely low.

"We have a set allotment of 1,000 feet in a traffic pattern we should be following when we descend and we get close to the runway but he was just like over the trees,” said Pascua. “I knew something wasn't right with him and probably a few seconds later we noticed he's totally turned the wrong way—the runway's facing this way and his plane is perpendicular to the runway and he actually bounced a couple times and it took his landing gear off, smashed his prop.”

Pascua said his instincts kicked in.

"I called and let everybody know the runway's closed, a plane crashed, that I'm going to shift runways to a different runway so I can get on the ground and as soon as I got the plane on the ground I went over and checked on him and he was fine and his passenger was fine."

Pascua explained that the type of plane that made the hard landing is not your typical small plane.

"Normally our planes are made out of metal--steel, aluminum--things like that: Cessna's and Pipers. But some of them are kits and this was a fabric plane. It's basically a steel frame but it's wrapped like in a fabric and it's painted and seasoned to be able to deal with that stuff but it's extremely light and very susceptible to wind."

"And it's just a testament to how much training we get and things that we have to do to overcome disaster and he did a great job of landing the plane and there's damage but he's good," said Pascua.
