Aircraft: Cessna 170
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of control in flight
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Positioning 

The pilot of the ski-equipped airplane reported that he aborted his first attempt to take off, and during his second takeoff in a tailwind, shortly after rotation, the airplane settled back onto the snow-packed runway. He further reported that the airplane lifted off again, but about 5 feet above the ground and near the end of the runway, a wind gust pushed the airplane down onto the runway. The airplane overran the runway and the right wing impacted a tree. The wind direction and speed were not discernable due to the lack of a windsock or weather reporting station.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wings.

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

The pilot chose to depart to the north due to raising terrain and tall trees on south end of runway.

The airport elevation was approximately 7,600 feet with the runway length of 1,800 feet. The airplane owner's manual performance information for zero wind velocity and hard level surface recommends 3,260 feet for take of distance at 7,000 feet elevation, 40 degrees F. and flaps in the up configuration. With flaps at 20 degrees, the owner's manual recommends 3,420 feet for take of distance at 7,000 feet elevation and 40 degrees F. The owner's manual also identifies performance information for a skiplane under the most favorable condition of smooth packed snow at temperatures of approximately 30 degrees F, the skiplane take-off distance is approximately 10% greater than that shown for the landplane. However, via the Supplimental Type Certificate (STC) process the airplane did undergo an engine conversion to the 180 hp and constant speed propeller. No take-off performance data was identified on the STC. The pilot further reported he had landed and taken-off from this airport previously without incident.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On December 15, 2018, about 0830 central standard time, a Cessna 120 airplane, N2496N, nosed over during a landing at the Beaumont Hotel Airport (07S), near Beaumont, Kansas. The private pilot and his passenger were uninjured. The airplane sustained substantial wing and empennage damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed in the area about the time of the accident, and the flight was not operated on a flight plan. The flight originated from a private airstrip near Emporia, Kansas, about 0800, and was destined for 07S.

According to a statement from the pilot, the airplane began to pull right after touchdown. He applied a "lot" of left rudder to try and keep the airplane going straight. As the airplane continued to pull right, with full left rudder and full aft elevator, the pilot tried tapping the left brake. The empennage came up, so he stopped using the left brake and used just the left rudder. As the airplane was approaching the west edge markers of the runway, the airplane nosed over. The pilot indicated that the right brake was locked during the landing.

Sanjay Dhall



   


An experimental "flying car" aircraft crashed on Friday during a test run at Willow Run Airport, injuring the male pilot and prompting an investigation, authorities said.

The owner of the hybrid vehicle was performing a high-speed taxi test at about 1:15 p.m. when it accidentally went airborne and crashed, according to a statement from the airport authority.

"By all indications, this appears to be an accident," said spokesperson Erica Donerson.

Paramedics from the Wayne County Airport Authority Fire Department transported the pilot, Sanjay Dhall, to the University of Michigan, confirmed his business partner David Han.

Dhall is in stable condition and is "alert and aware," Han said on Saturday evening.

"He is in good spirits, and we pray along with his family for a speedy healing and recovery," Han said.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident.

A local engineer and pilot, Dhall founded Detroit Flying Cars to create an aircraft that can also be operated as a car. Although Friday's test run ended with the crash, Han said that the team still achieved a milestone: The accident came after two successful tests, and during the third, the aircraft transitioned to "prepare for flight" mode.

But only the front two wheels were supposed to come off the ground.

“It actually took flight, which was more than what he had planned for," Han said.

After Dhall recovers, the team will repair and improve the prototype for more tests. The incident was unexpected, Han said, but will also lead to "tremendous improvements" in future prototyping.

The two-seat vehicle was handcrafted mostly from carbon fiber, the Free Press reported last year, with a propeller on the back and a hybrid engine.

"I've always loved to design wacky things, strange things," Dhall said in the July 2017 article. "I just find that there is uniqueness buried in things that don’t meet the convention. If you make something wacky, there could be a hidden secret that you could unlock."

The pilot of the tailwheel equipped airplane reported that, after landing, while exiting onto the taxiway, he decided to "cut the corner" instead of following the taxiway centerline. He did not see the parked glider to his right and at the last second, he applied brakes, the airplane's tail came up, and the elevator struck the glider's vertical and horizontal stabilizer.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to right elevator.

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

Analysis

According to the pilot in the tailwheel-equipped, high-performance airplane, he performed a three-point landing about 70 mph. During the landing roll, the airplane veered to the right. The pilot reported that he applied left rudder and left aileron to keep the airplane on the runway. However, the airplane exited the right side of the runway and then ground looped to the right, and the left wing and left elevator struck the ground.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left-wing spar, ribs, aileron, and the left elevator.

The METAR at the accident airport reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 010° at 7 knots.

The pilot reported that the valve stem from the left main landing gear tire failed, causing the loss of control. 

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's loss of directional control during the landing roll.

Daniel Bert Angus
MAY 12, 1976 ~ DECEMBER 17, 2018 (AGE 42)

Daniel Bert Angus flew his Piper PA-24-250 Comanche back to his Heavenly Father December 17th, 2018. He was born May 12, 1976 to wonderful parents, Lynn and Sharon Angus of Dry Fork.

Daniel was a great man who had a wonderful wife by his side, the love of his life, Gina Hackford Angus. They were married December 27, 2001, and later August 5, 2004 for time and all eternity in the Vernal, Utah Temple. Everyone knew how much Daniel adored Gina. He loved being at home cozying up with her, spending time with his beautiful daughter, Devany Daniel, and wrestling with his son that was his pride and joy, Hunter Bert.

Daniel began his life in the construction business when he was 12 years-old with his father and grandfather, Bert Angus. Daniel was extremely hard-working and driven, yet so very kind. There are many construction masterpieces around Vernal that were built by Daniel, such as the VTV Strata building, the Larsen-Haslem dental building, Comfort Inn, Jack General Tire remodel, and his own home.

Daniel always wanted to keep work with the local businesses and loved winning bid jobs! Daniel was known and respected for his impressive professionalism on a construction site. He loved the guys he worked with and they were his good friends. He always listened and offered wise guidance. One of his daughters is a current employee and manages the office for him. He and his wife own Angus Construction and Campbell Plumbing.

He loved sharing stories of the childhood memories of getting into mischief with his brothers and friends. As a family friend shared they had, “great times together, hard times together, we rode horses, camped, fished, hunted, and bled together.” He enjoyed the time he spent around his brothers, their wives, and sweet nieces and nephews.

Recently he found a passion and talent for flying. His flight instructor said that all the other pilots instantly loved him because “of his eagerness and exuberance.” He learned to fly in a Cessna 152. He always enjoyed taking care of his sheep and lambs that he named. He enjoyed going to hunting camp with his father-in-law, exciting trips to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, and fishing trips in Alaska with his wife, children, and mom and dad.

Due to extenuating family health circumstances, Daniel was traveled between Utah and Idaho because of the love for his work and his hometown community. He ended up flying back and forth between Vernal and Aberdeen, Idaho as much as he could. The Aberdeen community and ward immediately welcomed and loved him. His new bishop said Daniel is always the first person to volunteer, serve, and help others.

Daniel was a wonderful dad. He did everything he could to help “his kids” any way they needed and was always there for them, including giving them jobs at work. He always was eager to give them “Priesthood blessings” when they were in trouble and needed help. His son-in-law always hassled him to go fishing. His grandkids loved, “Papa Daniel” and he adored them.

Daniel married Mandy Serrano in 1993 and they later divorced. They had a daughter, McKayla (Jaden) Gilroy; their children are Ryker, Rogyn, and Rhyla; and daughter Tiffany Angus Cottam; her child Kayson.

He touched many lives through his constant service, priesthood service, his dedication to the community, contagious sense of humor, and kindness.

Daniel is preceded in death by his father, Lynn Angus, grandparents Bert and Ila Angus, and Brigham Keith and Charlotte McArthur.

He is survived by his wife Gina Angus; his mother Sharon Angus; his daughter, Devany; his sons, Hunter and Noah; Keisha (Sam) Holfeltz, their daughter RaeLee; Josh Muirhead; Chante (Dez) Muirhead, their kids, D’Ante and Emery Hatch; Caleb (Sophie) Pemberton, and their daughter Brookylnn; his brothers, Mike, Jed (Stephanie), Ryan (Daisy), Justin (Christy), Jason (Tiffany); in-laws, Niki Angus; Jesica (Jason) Harrison, Bo Hackford; father in-law, Randy Hackford, and nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, December 22, 2018 at 11 AM at the Glines Stake Center (78 South Aggie BLVD). A visitation for family and friends will be held Friday evening from 6-8PM at the Phillips Ashley Valley Funeral Home (a building he was honored to build) and Saturday 9:45 – 10:45 AM at the church. Interment will be in the Vernal Memorial Park under the care and direction of the Phillips Ashley Valley Funeral Home.
