Pilot Tim Nubert, left, speaks with Citrus County Sheriff's Office personnel Thursday afternoon following his safe return from where he had to ditch his Cessna T337G Turbo Super Skymaster. He reported he ran out of fuel before putting the plane down in a swampy area off Mason Creek.
 
A Citrus County Sheriff's Office helicopter hovers over the site where a Cessna T337G Turbo Super Skymaster made an emergency landing Thursday afternoon near Mason Creek in Homosassa. The pilot was uninjured in the incident. He reported to law enforcement that he was out of fuel at the time of the hard landing.


When Tim Nubert realized his plane didn’t have enough fuel to get him to a Brooksville airport Thursday afternoon, the Tampa man chose his next best landing strip: Homosassa marshlands.

Nubert said he was on track to land at the Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport from Memphis, Tennessee, when his  Cessna T337G Turbo Super Skymaster had a “fuel issue” midair, forcing him to look down toward the soft marshes surrounding Mason Creek.

Nubert was able to ease into a controllable rate of descent and landed in the marine grasslands, he said. 

When he did, the Cessna’s front propeller dug into the earth and rotated the plane to the left before the aircraft came to rest roughly a half-mile southwest of the Mason Creek public boat ramp at the end of South Mason Creek Road.

“It was textbook,” Nubert said. “I must have used 800 feet for landing.”

Responders with the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, Citrus County Fire Rescue, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Nature Coast EMS’ Surface Water Rescue Team searched for and rescued Nubert, who was uninjured and refused medical treatment.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Lindsay Blair said the Federal Aviation Administration will be investigating what authorities are calling “an emergency landing,” and is allowing Nubert to remove his plane.

Tom Davis, with the Crystal River Airport, said there was no mayday call received by the airport prior to Nubert’s landing. Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport Manager Keven Daugherty also said his airport got no distress signal.

It took time for emergency crews to find Nubert’s plane after his plane was reported down a little after noon, and numerous rescue boats launched from the Riverhaven Marina and Mason Creek Boat Ramp to search for it.

A sheriff’s helicopter also took off to assist in the search for the downed plane, which it found and circled until boat crews reached Nubert, who was brought to the Mason Creek Boat Ramp by an FWC officer.

“It was a real soft landing,” Nubert told deputies and medics after he got ashore. “The tide worked for us.”

Sharol Lambert said she was kayaking in Mason Creek when she spotted a plane flying low and circling above her.

“He was way too close,” she said.

Lambert called the FWC Wildlife Hotline to report a dead dolphin she found nearby the Mason Creek boat ramp, and was surprised to see a quick response from FWC. She didn’t know the plane had been forced to land just moments earlier.

“I didn’t see or hear a crash,” she said.

After he was assessed by deputies and medics, Nubert took a ride to Brooksville — by land.

Letters to the Editor

Disgraceful behavior by firemen

Dear Editor,

I am so disappointed having learnt about the wholesale theft by ranks of the Guyana Fire Service of personal property belonging to the crew and passengers of the crash-landed Fly Jamaica aircraft at CJIA.

What is even more appalling is the fact that firefighters who are internationally recognized as first responders, are expected to uphold humanitarian goals and practices in life threatening situations where persons’ lives are at risk or endangered due to natural or man-made disasters.

Take for example the heroic and exemplary performance of fire-fighters currently fighting raging wildfires in Northern and Southern California. There has not been a single report of looting or theft by the fire-fighters even though they are active in affluent neighborhoods where the rich and famous live and where there may be many valuables lying around.

Thus for Guyanese first responders under the guise of fire-fighters to act in such an irresponsible and disgraceful manner is to bring the noble service of fire-fighting into disrepute.

To steal from crew members and passengers at a time when they had to ‘run for their lives’ from a crashed passenger airplane is a crying shame and a grave embarrassment to our country and people.

This despicable act has brought into sharp focus once again the much debated question of trust and respect for ranks of the disciplined services.

This time, it is the Guyana Fire Service that has reignited the public confidence debate, not because of acts of heroism or magnanimity by its ranks, but because of acts by its own ranks that have damaged irreparably, the humanitarian image of the Guyana Fire Service.

By defaming their badges as a symbol of public faith and by the sullying the public’s trust in the Fire Service, the ranks involved in petty theft while aboard the crashed aircraft, abandoned the lofty ethics of the Guyana Fire Service. They should be decorated with badges of shame.

The GFS Stakeholder Consultation Forum held recently at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre to address Emergency Medical Technician services (EMT) was expected to ‘see all members within the GFS being trained in first responder skills in order to save lives in emergency cases’ however, the lectures delivered at that event, seem to have fallen on deaf ears in light of the crimes committed on the aircraft by ranks who would have attended the forum.

And Minister Ramjattan’s question;

“Are we up there for certain planes landing in difficulty? Ensuring minimum damage is done or no damage at all” though timely, appears to have signaled the possibility for ranks in the guise of first responders to commit opportunity crimes under the pretext of saving lives and protecting property. This was clearly demonstrated at the scene of the crash-landed Fly Jamaica aircraft.

The embarrassing incidents of theft perpetrated on an international aircraft by ranks of the Fire Service must have brought home to the Chief Fire Officer the need for more intense screening of applicants and rigorous, on-going training for recruits to the Guyana Fire Service.

Strict supervision of junior ranks by a senior experienced officer at all times especially in operational situations as the one involving the Fly Jamaica is of critical utmost importance.

Yours faithfully,

Clement J. Rohee

The captain of the ill-fated Fly Jamaica Airlines jet that made an emergency landing at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport alleged that several personal items were stolen from the plane, police said.

Police and fire officials  said at least nine firefighters were being questioned by investigators in connection with the reported theft.

Fire Chief Marlon Gentle said the pilot reported losing cash and electronic devices. He said one of the fire fighters surrendered items and then the theft began unravelling. He said other items were found at the Timehri Fire Station. A crew member also claimed her items were stolen

Gentle said the matter has been handed over to the police and stern action would be taken against those found culpable. “This is not something that we condone or take very lightly. Those found culpable will be dealt with to the fullest extent,” he said.

Other sources also told Demerara Waves Online News that a number of crew members and passengers have also claimed items, including passports, electronic devices have been stolen.

The fire fighters were among the first responders who entered the plane after it made an emergency landing at the north-eastern end of the runway.

The pilot had reported a hydraulic failure 10 minutes after departing Cheddi Jagan International Airport and requested permission to land.

On landing, one of the right engine and landing gear broke off.
