The pilot reported that, during a ferry flight, while in the climb to cruise altitude, the engine temperatures increased quickly, the engine surged and then lost power. He then deployed the Cirrus airframe parachute system (CAPS).

The pilot's lawyer further reported that, after the engine surged, the pilot executed a "rapid" descent to get the engine "breathing better". The engine then lost power and the pilot pulled the CAPS.

During the off-airport landing, in a field, the airplane impacted an irrigation sprinkler system.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage.

During a postaccident examination of the airplane by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector and airplane manufacturer, it was revealed that, the air reference line for the fuel injectors was found disconnected on the right-side bank at cylinder #1 and disconnected at the aft baffling.

The FAA inspector further reported that, the airplane had flown 7 hours since maintenance, where 3 cylinders had been repaired/replaced. He added that, this was the first time the mechanic had worked on the airplane for the owner. The airplane was to be flown at 10,000 ft or less for the 1st 10 hours after the maintenance. The pilot reported that the power loss occurred 12 minutes into the flight while passing through 10,000 ft to 15,000 ft. The pilot stated that he applied the boost pump, adjusted the mixer lever, and finally pulled the CAPS chute at 3,500 ft MSL. The pilot added, that he had done a flight 2-3 weeks prior.

None were injured when a plane crashed Wednesday in the town of Sand Creek, according to Dunn County authorities.

A report at 11:05 a.m. stated that a Cirrus plane had gone down in a harvested cornfield southeast of 1450th Avenue and County Road I, according to a press release from Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith.

Shortly after, the pilot reportedly arrived, uninjured, at the Sand Creek Fire Department, Smith said.

The pilot, of Duluth, Minn., who law enforcement did not identify, was the only passenger in the plane at the time. He had been flying from Cumberland, Wis., to Akron, Ohio, when the plane experienced mechanical problems. An airframe parachute -- a safety measure meant to control the descent of a plane and protect its passengers, according to Cirrus Aircraft -- was deployed. 

The plane went down and struck an irrigator, Smith said.

Dunn County deputies, the Sand Creek Fire Department, the Colfax Ambulance and a Federal Aviation Administration investigator responded to the scene.

The FAA investigator investigated the accident, Smith said.

Injuries: 2 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal


On November 20, 2018, about 0930 mountain standard time, a Cessna 172 airplane, N27LA, was substantially damaged following an aborted takeoff from the Meadow Lake Airport (FLY) Colorado Springs, Colorado. The commercial pilot and passenger sustained minor injuries. The airplane was registered to Good Guys Finish First Inc., and operated by Kingdom, Power, and Glory LLC, dba Peak Aviation as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated from the City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport (COS), Colorado Springs, Colorado at 0815.

The pilot reported that after take-off from COS they flew to a different airport and conducted three uneventful touch-and-go landings. He then proceeded to FLY and set-up for a straight in approach to runway 33. The approach was initiated at 60 knots with the flaps fully extended. The pilot reported that the "mixture was set appropriately for the 7,000-foot field elevation," and the carburetor heat was not used. The airplane landed uneventfully; the pilot added full power, raised the flaps, and raised the nose. The airplane departed the runway surface at about 50 knots, however, the airplane did not accelerate; instead it decelerated to about 45 knots. The pilot reported that the airplane then began exhibiting characteristics consistent with a stall, therefore, he lowered the nose and the airplane settled back onto the ground slightly off the left side of the runway surface. The pilot slowed the airplane as rapidly as possible, however, the airplane rolled through a grassy field, a fence, and a ditch before it nosed over and came to rest inverted.

The airplane has been recovered to a secure location for further investigation.

“I had God as my co-pilot.” Pilot walks WSBTV through his harrowing emergency landing on a busy Carroll County highway after engine quit.




CARROLL COUNTY, Georgia - A pilot said his engine shut off and he had no choice but to land on a Carroll County highway Tuesday afternoon.

As NewsChopper 2 flew over the scene, we could see the plane on the side of the road as cars drove by.

The pilot, Steve Allsop, landed his Beechcraft single-engine airplane safely on Highway 27 in Carroll County, not far from the West Georgia Regional Airport.

Allsop told Channel 2’s Tom Regan that he had trained to make this kind of landing and it paid off. He said that he has flown for seven years, racked up a lot experience in that time, but his nerves, and his grace under pressure, have never been truly been tested until now.

“The fuel gauges were incorrect. So, reading what they were reading was not what was in the tanks,” Allsop said.

The pilot said he was en route from South Carolina to Iowa when engine problems started while entering Carroll County.

He soon realized that he was in serious trouble.

Allsop told Regan that he decided to glide for several miles and then attempted to restart the engine. But it didn’t kick on.

“The engine ran out of fuel because the gauges were reading differently from what was in there,” Allsop said. “So, I had to put it down. So, I landed right on Highway 27. I hit one power line, one communication line. And I rolled off the side of the road."

“That was a heck of a landing,” Regan said.

“Divine intervention. I had God as my co-pilot on my side. God made it possible for me to walk away and no one else was hurt as well,” Allsop said.

A hangar employee took Allsop to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to catch a flight home to Marion, Iowa.

Before he can fly his plane again, the aircraft will undergo an evaluation by the Federal Aviation Administration.

On November 17, 2018, about 1120 eastern standard time, a TL-2000 StingSport, N494N, was substantially damaged during an in-flight separation of the horizontal stabilizer near Clermont, Florida. The sport pilot successfully deployed the Ballistic Recovery System (BRS) parachute and received minor injuries during the landing. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the flight which departed Arcadia Municipal Airport (X06), Arcadia, Florida about 1030. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

In a written statement, the pilot stated he was in cruise flight when he received an ADS-B traffic alert via a commercial application he had running on his smartphone. The traffic approached from his one o'clock position and closed at "a high rate of speed."

According to the pilot, he entered a shallow, descending turn to the left to increase separation with the traffic. As he levelled the airplane following the descent, he noted that his airspeed had increased to 138 knots. When he noted the airspeed, he "rapidly" reduced engine power below "50%" at which point the airplane yawed and entered a spin to the left. The pilot said he arrested the spin, and that the airplane initially responded to elevator inputs to raise the nose and level off. When the nose of the airplane pitched forward uncontrolled, the airplane entered a high-speed, nose-down descent, and the pilot deployed the BRS parachute.

According to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records, the pilot held a sport pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. The pilot reported 182.8 total hours of flight experience; 67.4 hours of which were in the accident airplane make and model.

According to FAA records, the airplane was manufactured in 2005 and had accrued 337.5 total aircraft hours. It was equipped with a Rotax 912ULS, 100-horsepower engine that drove a fixed-pitch propeller. The published maneuvering speed (Va) was 118 knots.

The airplane's most recent annual inspection was completed December 1, 2017 at 319.1 total aircraft hours.

At 1156, weather recorded at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM), 17 miles southeast of the accident site, included clear skies, visibility 10 miles, and winds from 090° at 5 knots. The temperature was 22° C, the dew point was 13° C; and the altimeter setting was 30.18 inches of mercury.

Examination of photographs revealed the airplane came to rest upright, with the nose landing gear collapsed. The horizontal stabilizer was separated from its mount and was located intact about 1,000 feet east of the main wreckage. The stabilizer mount plate and mounting studs themselves were intact and undamaged, but the composite structure and adhesive joints surrounding them were torn and peeled away from the main tail structure. The elevator push-pull tube was fractured at the point where the tube exited the empennage and the fracture surfaces displayed signatures consistent with overstress failure.
