Die Einsatzleiter von Polizei und Feuerwehr berichten über den aktuellen Ermittlungsstand beim Flugunglück bei Philippsburg: Bei dem Flugunglück sind vier Personen ums Leben gekommen. Weitere Personen wurden bei dem Absturz nicht verletzt.

Bei den zusammengestoßenen Flugobjekten handelt es sich um ein Sportflugzeug des Typ Piper und einen Helikopter. Das Sportflugzeug hat sich laut Polizei auf einem Flug von Basel in Richtung Speyer befunden. Der Rettungshelikopter war auf einem Überprüfungsflug mit Start- und Zielflughafen in Rheinmünster. Die Flugroute wird bei Überprüfungsflügen von den Piloten festgelegt.

Beide Fluggeräte waren in einem freigegebenen Luftraum unterwegs, das heißt die Piloten fliegen auf Sicht. Weder Hubschrauber noch Flugzeug sind mit Blackboxen ausgestattet, was die Ermittlung der Unfallursache erschweren wird. Eine exakte Flughöhe lasse sich zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt nicht schätzen, so Polizeieinsatzleiter Gerhard Heck. Hubschrauber und Sportflugzeug waren jeweils mit zwei Personen besetzt.

Erste Meldungen zum Unglück gingen laut Polizei um kurz nach 13 Uhr im Lagezentrum ein. Die ersten Meldungen berichteten von einem in der Luft explodierten Hubschrauber. Die aktuelle Ermittlungslage bestätigt den Bericht eines weiteren Zeugen, der kurz darauf einen Zusammenstoß in der Luft meldete. Der Zeuge will beobachtet haben, dass das Flugzeug unvermittelt aus den Wolken aufgetaucht und mit dem Helikopter zusammengestoßen sei.

Aktuell wird die Unglücksstelle von Sachverständigen untersucht. Bislang konnte nur eine der vier toten Personen geborgen werden. Alle vier Opfer sind noch nicht identifiziert. Ob es sich bei den zwei getöteten Insassen des Sportflugzeugs um Flugschüler aus Basel handelt, können die Ermittler nicht bestätigen. Das Sportflugzeug war auf die Flugschule in Basel angemeldet.

52 Feuerwehrkräfte, 120 Polizeibeamte, 28 Rettungsdienste, 20 Notfallseelsorger und 25 Einsatzkräfte vom Technischen Hilfswerk (THW) waren im Einsatz. Zwei Polizeihubschrauber haben am Dienstag das ausgedehnte Trümmerfeld untersucht. Aktuell wird die Unglücksstelle von zwei Sachverständigen untersucht. Eine Person konnte geborgen werden - drei befinden sich noch an Absturzstelle. Die Ermittler rechnen am Mittwoch mit weiteren Erkenntnissen. Die Ermittlungen zu Unglücksursache wird vermutlich noch einige Monate andauern.

Man accused of trying to steal plane to undergo mental exam

An Texarkana teen accused of attempting to steal a plane from Texarkana Regional Airport on the 4th of July to attend a rap concert was ordered to undergo a competency evaluation Tuesday by a judge in Miller County, Ark.

Zemarcuis Devon Scott, 18, was allegedly seen hopping a fence at the airport at about 2:30 a.m. by security personnel who called Texarkana, Ark., police. Airport staff reported seeing the man trying to open the door of an American Eagle twin-engine commercial jet, according to court records. By the time police arrived, the man had gained entrance to the plane and closed the door.

Of the officers who responded to the early morning emergency call, two recognized Scott from “past encounters.” When a flashlight was shone into the plane’s cockpit, Scott was allegedly sitting in the pilot’s chair. Scott allegedly told Texarkana, Ark., police that he planned to fly to Chicago in hopes of seeing rapper Famous Dex and wasn’t concerned about his lack of flight training.

Scott appeared before Miller County Circuit Judge Brent Haltom late Tuesday afternoon. Managing Public Defender Jason Mitchell asked the judge to order a psychological evaluation of Scott to determine if he was competent at the time of the alleged offense and whether he is competent to proceed to trial.

Last month, Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Chuck Black filed charges of commercial burglary and attempted theft of property over $25,000 against Scott. Both crimes are punishable by three to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Scott is being held in the Miller County jail with bond set at $25,000.

Zemarcuis Devon Scott


A man arrested at the Texarkana Regional Airport on July 4th allegedly told investigators he intended to fly a stolen plane to a rap music concert in another state.

Asked about his lack of training as a pilot, Zemarcuis Devon Scott, 18, allegedly told Texarkana, Ark., police that he didn't believe there was much more to the task than pushing buttons and pulling levers, according to a probable cause affidavit used to create the following account.

It was about 2:30 a.m. when airport security personnel contacted police about seeing a man jump a fence and attempt to enter an American Eagle twin-engine jet. By the time officers arrived, the suspect, later identified as Scott, had gotten onto the small commercial plane and closed the door behind him.

When officers shined a flashlight into the plane's cockpit from outside the jet, they could see a man sitting in the pilot's seat with his hands below the window and out of direct view. Fearing for their safety, an officer drew his weapon and ordered the man to keep his hands up where they could be seen.

When the suspect turned his gaze toward the officers, two of them allegedly recognized Scott from past encounters. Two of the three responding officers got the plane's door open while the third continued to monitor Scott until he could be taken into custody.

On Monday, Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Chuck Black formally charged Scott with commercial burglary and attempted theft of property with a value greater than $25,000. Both offenses are felonies punishable by three to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

Scott is being held in the Miller County jail with bail set at $25,000. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carlton Jones. A date for Scott's arraignment on the charges hasn't been scheduled but he is expected to appear in court later this month.

Aircraft: BUCHANAN Kitfox IV
Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On July 31, 2018, about 1130 mountain daylight time, a Buchanan Kitfox IV experimental airplane, N125TY, impacted a wire while maneuvering at low altitude over a river near Loma, Colorado. The private pilot sustained minor injuries, and the airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage. The airplane was registered to and operated by a private individual as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and the flight was operated on a visual flight rules flight plan. The airplane departed the Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT), Grand Junction, Colorado, and was destined for Cedar City, Utah.

According to the pilot, he departed GJT and elected to fly at low altitude over the Colorado River. After over passing a group of river rafters about 500 ft above ground level, the pilot "dropped [the airplane] low to the river." Shortly after descending, the airplane's empennage struck a wire that crossed over the river. The pilot lost control of the airplane, and the airplane impacted the side of the river canyon. The airplane came to rest partially submerged in the river, and the pilot was rescued by passing river rafters.

An Aeromexico airliner crashed during takeoff Tuesday in the northern Mexican state of Durango, causing a number of injuries but no deaths, the airline and authorities said.

Aeromexico said Flight 2431, an Embraer 190 plane with 97 passengers and four crew members aboard, was heading from Durango City to Mexico City.

“At the moment we don’t have reports of any deaths,” the airline said in a statement. “We are working with the corresponding authorities to give medical attention to passengers and crew.”

“We’re working to collect additional information and will provide more details when they are available and confirmed,” Aeromexico added.

The Communications and Transport Ministry said there were two infants aboard the plane in addition to the 97 passengers and four crew. It confirmed there were no fatalities.

It wasn’t immediately clear what happened to cause the crash, which was followed by a fire breaking out on the plane. The aircraft came to rest within the airport grounds about 400 meters from the end of the runway.

Luis Gerardo Fonseca, the director general of Civil Aviation, told the Televisa network that crew members directed the evacuation from the plane once it came down, and that a number of passengers left the aircraft on foot. There were no reports of any serious injuries, he added.

The total number of injured wasn’t clear. The Durango state health ministry said 18 people were taken to a hospital, and the Durango Red Cross later said its paramedics had transported 27 people to different hospitals.

The Communications and Transport Ministry said the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board will participate in the investigation into the crash with technical assistance, as well as Embraer representatives.

On July 30, 2018, about 1000 central daylight time, a Beech A36 airplane, N1856W, impacted terrain following a power loss while on a visual approach to Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport (BRD), Brainerd, Minnesota. The private pilot and passenger were not injured, and the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which departed from Poplar Grove Airport (C77), Poplar Grove, Illinois about 0807.

About two miles prior to landing at BRD, the pilot noticed the engine sputter and stop. He attempted several corrective actions, to include switching to the right tank on the fuel selector and increasing the mixture control, with no effect. The pilot executed a forced landing into birch trees, which damaged both wings. The airplane came to rest nose down and the pilot and passenger exited without injury. The airplane has been recovered for further examination.

An Illinois couple, frequently flying from their home state to the Brainerd lakes area, were injured when their single-engine airplane crashed Monday, July 30.

The crash occurred less than a mile and a half away from where they were scheduled to land at the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport.

The crash, reported at 10:05 a.m., ignited a large response of emergency personnel from the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office, North Memorial Ambulance and Air Care, Minnesota State Patrol, Brainerd Fire Department, airport personnel and the Crosby Police Department—the first agency on scene.

Chief Deputy Denny Lasher of the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office said the Beech A36 Bonanza crashed just south of what is called Runway 34 at the Brainerd airport in Oak Lawn Township. Lasher said finding the aircraft was difficult as the terrain was heavily wooded with thick brush and swampland. Sheriff and police personnel were up to their hips in muck trying to find the couple.

Sheriff personnel stayed in communication with the couple—Vincent and Jody Facchiano, both age 60, of Belvidere, Ill.—to try to locate them. Authorities also tracked the couple's cellphone signal in an effort to locate them. The six-seat aircraft crashed somewhere northeast of Brainerd, east of the airport and Highway 210, and to the west to Demery Road, near Shannon's Auto Body in Brainerd. Authorities set up posts to conduct their efforts at two different locations—one off Three Mile Road and the other off Crow Wing County Highway 25.

Emergency personnel learned the aircraft was near the BNSF Railway railroad tracks. Crews were working on the railroad tracks and stopped their work while authorities looked for the injured couple in the aircraft. Lasher said personnel took a squad vehicle down the railroad tracks as far as they could to where the aircraft crashed. Then they went into the woods on foot.

All the agencies worked together and state patrol used its helicopter to locate the aircraft. Once located, the couple was able to walk to the helicopter, which landed nearby. They were then airlifted from the scene to the Brainerd airport because of the remote area and rough terrain.

From the airport, the couple was transported by ambulance to Essentia Health-St. Joseph's Medical Center in Brainerd. Later Monday afternoon, a hospital spokesperson stated Jody Facchiano was treated and released and Vincent Facchiano was in good condition.

Sgt. Andy Galles of the sheriff's office said the couple had minor injuries, including some bumps and bruises.

Galles said the pilot, Vincent Facchiano, told them the engine failed upon approach and the aircraft was unable to reach the runway. The aircraft crashed, snapping off branches of trees before landing in the thick brush. The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the cause of the engine failure and crash.

"They are very fortunate that they are OK," Lasher said of the couple.

The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department reports a husband and wife survived a plane crash near the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport Monday morning with only minor injuries.

A release stated the department received a call from Jody Facchiano, 60 of Belvidere, Illinois, just after 10 a.m. Monday saying she and her husband Vincent, also 60, had just survived a plane crash.

She said the crash occurred as the plane was attempting to land on runway 34 at the airport.

The release went on to say directions provided by Jody Facchiano, as well as cell phone pings, helped authorities locate the area of the crash - a heavily wooded and lowland area about 1.4 miles southeast of the airport in Oak Lawn Township.

According to the release, the sheriff's department - with assistance from the state patrol - located the couple as they attempted to walk out of the crash site. They were airlifted from the area by a state patrol helicopter, then transferred to an ambulance that took them to Essentia Hospital in Brainerd where they were treated for what were described as minor injuries.

The release states Vincent Facchiano said he and his wife were flying to Brainerd from Illinois, and that he had experienced engine failure upon approach to the airport. Deputies were unable to reach the crash site itself due to the terrain.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have been notified and the matter remains under investigation.
