Analysis

**This report was modified on August 28, 2016. Please see the docket for this accident to view the original report.**

The airline transport rated pilot reported that, after an en route stop, he planned to continue his cross-country personal flight. The pilot reported that, during takeoff and as the airplane was between about 20 and 30 ft above the ground, he felt the engine surge, and it then lost power. The airplane was traveling too fast to stop on the remaining runway, and it impacted a ditch at the end of the runway.

Examinations of the airframe and engine revealed that the left magneto was malfunctioning. During subsequent examination of the magneto, a section of a drill bit, which approximated the diameter of a timing pin, was found inside of it. A review of maintenance records revealed that the left magneto had been replaced 15.6 hours before the accident.

A review of engine monitor data revealed that the exhaust gas temperature spiked three times; two of the spikes were attributed to the "before takeoff" magneto checks. The third spike occurred during the takeoff and just before a power reduction. The data are consistent with the left magneto failing during the takeoff. The accident is consistent with maintenance personnel improperly using a drill bit as a timing pin to time the magneto before installing it on the engine. Maintenance personnel likely rotated the engine while the drill bit was still in the magneto, which resulted in a section of the drill bit then breaking off and eventually causing the magneto to fail.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The loss of engine power due to a malfunctioning magneto. Contributing to the accident was maintenance personnel improper use of a drill bit instead of a timing pin during magneto installation, which resulted in a section of the drill bit breaking off and ultimately to the magneto failure.

Factual Information

On May 15, 2015, about 0840 central daylight time, a Cessna T206H airplane, N164CS, overran the end of the runway, following a rejected takeoff from the Piggott Municipal Airport (7M7), Piggott, Arkansas. The airline transport rated pilot received minor injuries and the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by Mid Continent Aircraft Corporation, Hayti, Missouri, under the provisions of the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a cross-country flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time.  The flight was originating at the time of the accident and was en route to the Walnut Ridge Regional Airport (KARG), Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.

The pilot reported that he planned on departing 7M7's runway 18, and the airplane was configured for a no-flap takeoff. About 1,000 feet down the runway, he rotated for takeoff.  When the airplane was about 20-30 feet in the air, the engine "surged", and then lost power.  The airplane settled back on to the runway; however, it was traveling too fast to stop on the remaining runway.  The airplane came to rest in an irrigation ditch near the runway.   The airplane was equipped with air bags, and the pilot's airbag deployed during the accident.

The initial examination of the airplane revealed substantial damage to the left wing and fuselage.  The airplane was recovered from the ditch; however, the airplane received extensive damage during the recovery, including separation of the empennage from the fuselage.

The airplane was a 2014 Cessna turbo Stationair (T206H), powered by a Lycoming TIO-540-AJ1A, six-cylinder reciprocating engine, rated at 310 hp.  The airplane's "hobbs" meter read 113.6 total flight hours.  The airplane was equipped with a Garmin G1000 avionics suite; the engine monitoring data was downloaded from the unit. A review of maintenance records revealed the most recent manufacturer's inspection was completed on March 30, 2015 at a hobbs time of 96.1 flight hours.

The NTSB Investigator in Charge (IIC), a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Inspector, and technical representatives from the airframe and engine manufacturers, examined the airplane at a salvage yard facility located in Clinton, Arkansas.

A visual examination of the engine did not reveal any anomalies, so an engine run was planned; however, damage to the airplane's engine mount and propeller limited the test run to low power settings.  During the test run, a malfunctioning left magneto was discovered.  A review of the engine's maintenance records revealed the left magneto had been replaced at a hobb's time of 98.0 hours.

The engine was separated from the airframe and shipped to Lycoming's engine facility located in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The engine's left magneto was replaced with a factory test unit and the engine was prepped, and placed in an engine test cell. The NTSB IIC and technical representatives then conducted an engine test run.  No abnormalities were noted during the engine test run.

The engine's fuel injection servo unit was removed and sent to Precision Airmotive, LLC, for examination.  The examination was conducted under the supervision of the NTSB, with technical representatives from the airframe and fuel servo manufacturers.  The fuel servo was bench tested; the unit tested satisfactory, with no performance abnormalities noted.   Disassembly of the unit revealed two separation areas on the fuel diaphragm, which failed to show up during the bench test.

The original left magneto and the replacement magneto, which was on the engine at the time of the accident, were shipped to Champion Aerospace facility in Liberty, South Carolina. The NTSB IIC and technical representatives from Textron Aviation (Cessna) and Slick Ignition systems examined the magnetos. The original magneto was placed on a bench test machine; the magneto appeared operational with no abnormalities noted.  The magneto on the engine at the time of the accident was then bench tested.  The magneto initially displayed normal ignition spark; however, as the rpm increased, the spark became erratic and failed at times to produce spark on all (six) terminals.

The failed magneto was then disassembled; small bits of plastic like material was found inside the magneto consistent with the magneto's rotor. The rotor arm attached to the plastic rotor was out of position and could turn independent of the rotor. The contact points inside the magneto cap showed abnormal wear. Parts from inside the magneto were laid out on a table. A section of a drill bit, about 3/8 inch long, was among the pieces found inside the magneto.

During maintenance and prior to installation of the magneto to the engine, a timing pin (Slick T-118 Magneto Locking pin) is used to time the magneto.  The section of drill bit approximated the diameter of the timing pin.

The accident data from the engine monitor was reviewed.  Three areas of EGT (exhaust gas temperature) spikes were noted.  Two spikes before the takeoff roll were attributed to the pilot conducting the 'before takeoff' magneto checks.  The third spike happened during the takeoff and just before a reduction in engine rpms.  The data is consistent with the left magneto failing during the takeoff.

Captain Randy Liverpool

A decision to fly low over the Cuyuni River appears to have caused the death of Domestic Airways pilot, Captain Randy Liverpool, on Thursday.

Eyewitness reports and video footage gleaned by Kaieteur News show Liverpool flying extremely low over the Cuyuni River shortly before he crashed near the Eteringbang airstrip.

Kaieteur News was told that after flying that low, Liverpool was forced to fly at an almost vertical angle to avoid crashing into trees. His plane then apparently stalled, resulting in him crashing.

“He was flying low over the river and he had to make a sudden ‘pull up’ to clear the trees,” an aviation source said.

“When a plane goes vertical you sometimes can’t produce enough lift and the plane would flip. At that angle sometimes enough fuel doesn’t go to the engine,” a source said.

The veteran pilot was on his last flight for that day when the mishap occurred.

According to sources, Liverpool had done a similar thing the previous day.

“It was pretty much pilot error,” a source close in the aviation sector said. “The day before he was flying lower over the river.”

Sources close to Liverpool said the pilot and some of his colleagues had been cautioned before about carrying out similar stunts.

Photographs of Liverpool’s flight path that day also indicated that he had veered off his route while returning to the airstrip.

According to reports, Liverpool had done a number of other trips from Ekereku to Eteringbang on Thursday. During those trips, he had taken the specified route.

However, while heading back to Eteringbang on his last trip, he decided to fly over the San Martin Village, which is close to Venezuela, then fly over the Cuyuni River. It is estimated that he had enough fuel (some 30 gallons), which was enough for the return trip.

The Domestic Airways Cessna 206 aircraft 8R-GHB crashed on approach at the Eteringbang airstrip in Region Seven at approximately 17:45 hrs on Thursday.

A police release stated that the aircraft was heading from Ekereku to Eteringbang and was about five minutes away from the Eteringbang airstrip when it went down. A loud explosion was heard and fire was seen coming from the aircraft.

Persons who rushed to the scene found the pilot engulfed in flames in the wrecked aircraft.

The body, which was burnt beyond recognition was eventually retrieved from the wreck and taken to the Eteringbang Police Station.

One eyewitness described the scene as “horrific,’ with rescuers struggling to drag the smoldering body from the wreckage.

Aviation sources had stated that the pilot was observed “coming in too low” as he approached the airstrip.

Liverpool’s remains were brought to the Eugene F. Correia International Airport at approximately 13:45 hrs on Friday. Family members and colleagues were present to receive the body and offer moral support.

Kaieteur News understands that Liverpool was married and fathered a one-month-old child.

GCAA inspectors, along with an investigator from the Guyana Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation Unit have since returned from the crash site.

“The death of Captain Randy Liverpool has sent shockwaves throughout the civil aviation fraternity, including the GCAA,” the release state.

Liverpool worked with the GCAA as an Air Traffic Controller before pursuing his dream of becoming a pilot. He was employed with Domestic Airways Inc. for some five years.

Veteran aviator Captain Gerry Gouveia had described Liverpool as a ‘very experienced’ and ‘very careful’ pilot.

“The information that I have is that he was very experienced and very careful, and so it boggles the mind (as to what went wrong.)

And former army pilot captain, Miles Williams, who now flies corporate aircraft in the US, suggested that it was still too early to say what caused the crash.

“We had reports of the aircraft flying low. He’s very experienced; he’s been doing shuttles in the area for awhile. It could be engine failure or wind gusts (that caused the crash).”

Analysis 

The pilot reported during a telephone interview that, while landing in variable wind conditions, his approach speed was fast, and that during the landing roll, the wind pushed the airplane off the runway to the right. He added that he did not apply full braking action.

The pilot further stated that, during the landing roll, a strong crosswind gust pushed the airplane off the right side of the runway into bushes. He described the wind as variable and gusting but did not report the wind speed.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The automated weather observation station located about 10 miles south-southwest from the airport reported that, about 34 minutes before the accident, the wind was from 290° at 8 knots. The same automated station reported that, about 26 minutes after the accident, the wind was from 310° at 5 knots. The airplane landed on runway 3.
