Date & Time: 12/06/2018, 1230 PST
Registration: N361TC
Aircraft: Beech 36
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On December 6, 2018, at 1230 Pacific standard time, a Beech A36TC airplane, N361TC, collided with a fence following a loss of engine power while on approach for landing at Los Banos Municipal Airport (LSN), Los Banos, California. The private pilot was not injured. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the tail section. The airplane was privately owned and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident and no flight plan had been filed. The flight originated from Reid-Hillview Airport (RHV), San Jose, California at 1145.

According to the pilot, prior to departure from RHV he fueled the main fuel tanks and had 35 gallons of useable fuel on board. While en route, the pilot planned to practice flight maneuvers, and then practice landings at LSN. The pilot reported that he entered the downwind for runway 32, and as he made the left base turn, the engine began to sputter and lose power. The pilot turned toward the runway and tried to maintain clearance from trees located on the outside of the airport perimeter fence, however, the propeller and landing gear struck the fence. The airplane came to rest upright about 5 ft from the runway edge.

A San Jose man escaped injury after his plane crash-landed at Los Banos Airport in Merced County on Thursday, according to authorities.

Los Banos Police and fire responded the airport around 12:36 p.m., after a licensed pilot out of San Jose experienced a power failure and crash-landed a single-engine airplane, according to Cmdr. Ray Reyna.

Reyna said the pilot narrowly missed trees located south of Highway 152 as he approached the runway.

The airplane’s front landing gear collided with a fence bordering the south side of the airport and crash-landed in a grass area sliding several hundred feet before coming to a rest short of the runway, Reyna said.

Authorities said no other aircraft were involved in the crash and there were no other passengers on board the plane.

Los Banos Police have been in contact with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board following the crash. 

Reyna said police received authorization from the National Transportation Safety Board to move the aircraft and store it until National Transportation Safety Board personnel can inspect the plane and speak with the pilot.

The airport and runway closed for about one to two hours while police and fire responded to the scene. 

Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash, according to police.

Farmington and Lakeville fire crews were paged to assist with a single-engine aircraft down in a field east of the Airlake Airport this morning.

Crews located the plane in a Castle Rock Township field.


The plane landed safely after engine troubles, and the pilot and occupants were uninjured. 


The Dakota County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the incident.





LAKEVILLE, Minn. - First responders are on the scene of an unplanned landing between Lakeville and Farmington.

Aerials from SKY 11 show a single-engine, fixed-wing plane in the middle of a corn field near Castle Rock Township. Fortunately, it appears the aircraft is mostly intact.

Dakota County Sheriff Captain Rick Schroeder says dispatchers received a call at 11:06 a.m. of a plane down short of the Holman Field in Lakeville. Pilot Francis Andrew Myers reported the plane suffered engine failure, but that he was able to put the aircraft down safely about four miles east of the airport in a corn field.

Myers told KARE's Karla Hult that he was going hunting in South Dakota when the engine failed.

"I'm nervous now," he said. "You don’t really have a whole lot of time to think about it. You analyze the situation and make decisions. Once you make the decision, you go with it."

Myers said the plan was to land at Mitchell, South Dakota. He said he's been a pilot for 37 years and never had something like this happen.

Myers and his passenger Lance Lemieux walked away with no injuries.

Myers' hunting dog was also on the plane but was not injured.

And the plane only suffered a few scratches.

An investigation team from the Federal Aviation Administration is enroute to take over the case.

MEDFORD, Oregon — 

UPDATE (11:50 a.m.) -

According to Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport Security Deputy Director Debbie Smith, the plane has now been removed and the runway reopened as of 11:13 this morning.

ORIGINAL -

An emergency landing by a cargo plane at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport Thursday morning forced the closure of a runway as emergency personnel responded.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Allen Kenitzer said the AMF flight 1908, a Beech BE99 type aircraft, landed gear up on runway 14 and is currently disabled on the runway.

Initial reports indicate the plane had a landing gear malfunction. The cause is now under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Medford Fire-Rescue responded, but there were no injuries reported.

The cargo plane which was coming from Portland had one pilot and one other person, according to Federal Aviation Administration.

At least two flights have already been diverted to Eugene with the runway closure.

Right now officials are seeking approval to move the aircraft which has prevented all air traffic from landing or taking off from the airport.

Defining Event: Loss of control in flight
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

Analysis

The flight instructor reported that, during a touch-and-go landing in crosswind conditions and with the student pilot on the controls, the airplane touched down on the runway centerline "but without perfect longitudinal (heading) alignment," and the airplane then veered left. The instructor took control of the airplane and added power to take off, but she did not retract any of the "partial" flaps. She maintained the "slightly" offset direction from the runway during the takeoff roll, and the airplane became airborne as it exited the left side of the runway. The left wing impacted trees and brush. Subsequently, the airplane came to rest at the bottom of a ravine.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing.

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

The airport's automated weather observation station reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 330° at 7 knots, gusting to 14 knots. The pilot landed the airplane on runway 6. 

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The flight instructor's failure to maintain the runway heading during an attempted takeoff in gusting crosswind conditions, which resulted in a collision with trees.

Findings

Aircraft
Directional control - Not attained/maintained (Cause)

Personnel issues
Aircraft control - Instructor/check pilot (Cause)

Environmental issues
Crosswind - Effect on operation

Analysis 

The flight instructor reported that this was her fifth instructional flight with the student and that they were practicing takeoffs and landings in the pattern. She recalled that the previous landing accomplished by the student was "squirrelly." She reported that she reminded the student pilot "how/why not to use the pedals during the landing roll, and to stay off of the brakes." She recalled that the student completed the next approach and landing and both were stable. However, during the landing roll the airplane made an abrupt right turn, and exited the right side of the runway about the midpoint of the 5500 foot long by 100 foot wide runway. The flight instructor reported that she did not believe that she would be able to bring the airplane back to the left and aborted the landing. However, the airplane struck rising terrain, entered a 360 degree turn and struck an embankment. The flight instructor asked the student if he had his feet on the pedals during the landing roll, and he replied "I think so." The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings, horizontal stabilizer and elevator.

The flight instructor reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or anomalies with any portion of the airplane during the flight that would have prevented normal flight operations. 

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The student pilot's unnecessary pedal application and the flight instructor's delayed remedial action resulting in a loss of directional control, runway excursion and ground impact during the aborted landing.

Findings

Aircraft
Directional control - Not attained/maintained (Cause)

Personnel issues
Aircraft control - Student pilot (Cause)
Delayed action - Instructor/check pilot (Cause)
Unnecessary action - Student pilot (Cause)
