A minor crash involving a single-engine aircraft occurred Monday afternoon at Capital City Airport, though airport officials said no one was seriously hurt.

The small aircraft crash-landed onto a hill several feet from the airport’s runway at approximately 2:45 p.m., airport Assistant Director Scott Shannon said.

“The pilot made an attempt to land, and some people indicated … that the aircraft bounced when it landed, and it started to porpoise when it landed,” Shannon said. An aircraft porpoises when it first makes contact with the ground but continues to repeatedly bounce up and down.

Following the crash, the pilot told officials that he had experienced a problem with the landing gear, Shannon said. The cause of the crash has yet to officially be determined, though Shannon said no engine failure occurred. No one else occupied the plane.

The pilot, Shannon said, declined to go to the hospital.

Shannon said he did not know any information about the pilot. The Federal Aviation Administration’s registry shows that the plane is registered to Jay G. Close in Versailles under a valid certification, based on the N-number shown near the plane’s tail.

The plane’s propeller showed visible damage, and one of the wheels from the landing gear rested beside the aircraft in the field.

With crews unable to move the plane until the FAA comes to examine the crash scene, the plane remained on the hill Monday night. Though Shannon said he did not know exactly when the FAA would come, he added that the agency usually works quickly and he expected that someone would examine the wreckage Tuesday.

Once that happens, Shannon said, the pilot will be able to handle the matter with his insurance company.

Though Shannon acknowledged that aviation accidents are bound to happen on occasion, he said they are uncommon and that it has been “quite some time” since Frankfort’s airport has experienced such an incident.

Accident Number: ANC18LA058
Date & Time: 07/29/2018, 0912 AKD
Registration: N744AK
Aircraft: Robinson R44
Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Public Aircraft 

On July 29, 2018, at about 0912 Alaska daylight time, N744AK, a Robinson R44 II helicopter, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing following a total loss of engine power shortly after takeoff from the Bettles Airport (PABT), Bettles, Alaska. The commercial pilot and two passengers were not injured. The helicopter was registered to and operated by Quicksilver Air Inc., under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 public-use flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and company flight following procedures were in effect. The flight departed PABT about 0908.

According to the pilot, he had computed the weight and balance and performed a preflight inspection prior to departure. After the passengers boarded the helicopter, the engine was started, and all ground run-up checks of the engine were satisfactory. He stated that about 4 minutes after liftoff the helicopter lost all engine power. He entered an emergency autorotation and landed the helicopter in a bog. During the emergency landing, the tips of the helicopters skids broke though the vegetative matt on the bogs surface and the main rotor blades impacted the tailboom. The helicopter sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and tailboom.

The helicopter was equipped with a Lycoming IO-540-AE1A5 series engine, a detailed engine examination is pending.

The closest weather reporting facility is Bettles Airport (PABT). At 0853, an METAR from PABT was reporting in part: wind, calm; visibility, 10 statute miles; sky condition, few clouds 11,000 feet; temperature, 66° F; dew point 55° F; altimeter, 30.11 inches of mercury.

The world was dark but the runway was lit early Monday when a small plane belly landed at North Perry Airport because of apparently faulty landing gear.

The landing at the airport, 101 SW 77th Way, happened about 2 a.m.

“Investigators revealed that the landing gear failed to deploy,” police said in a tweet later Monday morning that included pictures of the plane on the runway.

The pilot wasn’t hurt, police said, and the plane was safely removed from the runway.

The cause of the landing gear malfunction wasn’t immediately known.
