A Cirrus SR-22 crashed at Jones-Riverside Airport near Jenks late Wednesday afternoon.

EMSA and Tulsa firefighters responded. Officials say one person was on board and did not suffer any injuries or require treatment.

Investigators say the plane began wobbling in crosswinds as it was descending toward the runway and crashed on the east side of the east taxiway.

Destinations Executive Flight Center in Tulsa confirmed to 2 News Works For You that the company owns the plane. The pilot is based in Green Country and flies regularly for business in the region, a spokesperson said. He was returning from a day trip to El Dorado, Arkansas, flight records show.

The airport was closed while crews clean up the wreckage, but everything is running smoothly again.

A pilot was not injured after a small plane crashed Wednesday afternoon at Jones Riverside Airport in south Tulsa.

The sole occupant of the single-engine plane was able to exit after the crash and was not injured, authorities said.

He told first responders he lost control during his landing approach. The plane is a Cirrus SR22.

Firefighters about 5:20 p.m. were called to the crash on the south side of the airport, located in south Tulsa just north of Jenks.

Air traffic in and out of the airport was suspended while authorities investigated the crash.

The airport has three runways, over 200 commercial and private hangars, and over 500 based aircraft.

During 2011, the control tower recorded 202,539 operations (average of 555 per day).

Should have pulled the chute

Right when I saw there was a comment I knew it would be a stupid chute comment.

Well, I guess Juicy Smollett was flying it. Any news to escape this insane story this week is good news. Juicy should'a pulled the chute! LOL!

The jury is in. The case is closed. Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) works and it saves lives. In fact, there are (fill-in the number, intentionally left blank) people alive today because a Cirrus pilot pulled the chute in time to avert a tragedy.

Ballistic Recovery System is an amazing safety option to have on board but I have to ask the question of why it seems so many Cirrus Aircraft are caught in the position of having to pull the CAPS and why so many engine failures? Why are Diamond Aircraft flying with less engine failures and less fatalities with no BRS?

Sort of like health insurance: the chute is a great option it just doesn’t apply to exactly this case.

Or a high deductible.

Too much airplane. Not enough pilot. (2nd repeat).

"Too much airplane. Not enough pilot. (2nd repeat)."

So ... You are saying he is consistent?

Aside from all the predictable comments - I'm relatively impressed by the crashworthy cabin in this tumbling crash.

Jim B said...

Not so much as (he) is consistent, but rather [some owners] of Cirrus aircraft [are consistent] in loosing control of this aircraft in takeoff and landing and showing up in Kathryn's Report.

The Cirrus is a fine airplane and appears to be a good design if operated within design specifications. While I personally have no left seat time in them I have a few hours right seat. There are things about it I like and some not.

I also consider the Cirrus to the the most crash-worthy aircraft in general aviation. That has been borne out repeatedly in Kathryn's Report. The seat and restraint safety is second to none in a Cirrus. The chute, well, has [upright] last-ditch use above 2000' AGL but why make decisions that ending up going that far?

The Cirrus aircraft is a fast and demanding aircraft and cannot be flown to the more tolerant specifications of other more docile aircraft. The Cirrus has a cruise wing like the Mooney and has a sharp stall break compared to other more rounded (and higher drag) utility wing designs.

One cannot be a sloppy or inattentive pilot in a Cirrus and expect to go incident free. If you are learning to fly the Cirrus I strongly suggest you take no liberties with the POH or your Instructor's guidance. If one's skills are below average or diminishing, I would suggest the Cirrus is not the right airplane for you (or me).

Regardless of the aircraft model, the amount of cash invested will not buy you safety.

My view is the biggest problem with the Cirrus is not the Cirrus at all. It's between the seat and the keyboard.
