Ein Helikopter ist bei Herisau abgestürzt. Der Notruf ging laut der Kantonspolizei um 16 Uhr ein. Als die Rettungskräfte vor Ort eintrafen, stand das Wrack in Flammen. Die Feuerwehr hat den Brand mittlerweile gelöscht.


Bei dem Absturz kam ein Mann, 59 Jahre alt, ums Leben. Eine Frau, 56 Jahre alt, wurde schwer verletzt. Sie wurde per Rega ins Spital gebracht», sagt Ueli Frischknecht von der Kantonspolizei Appenzell Ausserhoden zu BLICK. Die beiden Passagiere sind im Kanton Thurgau wohnhaft. Sie wurden durch einen Augenzeugen aus dem Wrack geborgen.


Nach ersten Erkenntnissen war der Helikopter in Uerenbohl bei Sulgen/TG gestartet und flog Richtung Alpstein, als der Absturz passierte. Zum Unfallhergang kann der Kapo-Sprecher noch nichts sagen. Es handelt sich um einen privaten Helikopter. Die Absturzstelle befindet sich zwischen Herisau und Hundwil AR in der Nähe der Steblenstrasse. Die Ermittlungen erfolgen unter der Leitung der Schweizerischen Sicherheitsuntersuchungsstelle (SUST). 


Eine Augenzeugin zu BLICK: «Regelmässig fliegen über mein Haus Helikopter, aber dieses Mal war alles anders. Er flog ganz tief und machte komische laute Knatter-Geräusche.» Die Anwohnerin weiter: «So etwas habe ich noch nie gesehen. Der Pilot hatte grosse Probleme den Helikopter gerade zu halten, suchte offenbar nach einer Landemöglichkeit.

Am Samstagnachmittag ist in Herisau ein Helikopter abgestürzt. Ein 59-jähriger Mann ist verstorben, eine 56-jährige Frau wurde schwer verletzt. Dass die beiden Insassen überhaupt aus dem brennenden Helikopter geborgen werden konnten, ist einer heran eilenden Drittperson zu verdanken. Noch vor dem Eintreffen der Feuerwehr, kümmerte sie sich um Reanimation und Betreuung.

Beim verunfallten Helikopter handelt es sich laut der Ausserrhoder Kantonspolizei um einen Privat-Helikopter. Nach ersten Erkenntnissen der Polizei ist dieser in Uerenbohl bei Sulgen im Kanton Thurgau gestartet und war in Richtung Alpstein unterwegs.

Date & Time: 01/19/2019, 1335 EST
Registration: N3298Z
Aircraft: Piper PA 18
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of control in flight
Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

Analysis 

On January 19, 2019, about 1315 central standard time, a Piper PA-28 airplane, N3298Z, impacted terrain near Iron Mountain, Michigan. The airline transport-rated pilot sustained minor injuries, and the airplane sustained substantial damage. The airplane was owned and operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight that originated at Ford Airport, Iron Mountain, Michigan. The pilot reported that he had conducted an uneventful sight-seeing flight and intended to return to the departure airport. He initiated a left turn about 800 ft above a lake and became distracted while focusing on a distant point across the frozen and snow-covered lake. The pilot added that he lost reference to the horizon while continuing in a descending left turn until ground impact.

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

The departure airport's automated surface observation system, located 6 miles west of the accident site, reported that, about 20 minutes before the accident, winds were from 020º at 5 knots, 10 miles visibility, ceiling overcast at 3,500 ft, temperature -11ºC, dew point -18ºC, and altimeter setting of 30.19 inches of mercury.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's distraction and subsequent loss of situational awareness and visual horizon in overcast sky conditions, which led to an unrecognized descent during a low-level maneuver and subsequent impact with snow-covered terrain.

Findings

Personnel issues
Situational awareness - Pilot (Cause)
Attention - Pilot (Cause)

Environmental issues
Snowy/icy terrain - Contributed to outcome

DICKINSON COUNTY, Michigan — A single-engine plane made what was called a “hard landing” on Fumee Lake near Upper Pine Creek Road.

Rescuers from Norway Fire Department among others responded and were able to assist the pilot who was reported to be “up and talking” at the time.

Both entrances to Fumee Lake were blocked during the rescue, but access has been cleared as of this report.

FOX 17 was in contact with local resident, Jason Asselin, who was able to safely provide pictures and video of the wreckage.

With the mild winter Michigan has experienced, the ice on the lake will be extremely dangerous after an impact such as this. It is not advisable for anyone to go out on the lake at this time.

Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Miscellaneous/other
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 137: Agricultural

Analysis 

The pilot of the turbine-powered airplane reported that, during takeoff for an agricultural application flight, he failed to move the power lever from the ground idle position to the flight position. During takeoff, the airplane did not attain sufficient airspeed, aerodynamically stalled about 50 ft above the ground, impacted terrain, and came to rest inverted.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, both wings, and the empennage.

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

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's failure to move the power lever to the proper position before takeoff, which resulted in insufficient airspeed and a subsequent aerodynamic stall.

Findings

Aircraft
Power lever - Incorrect use/operation (Cause)
Airspeed - Not attained/maintained (Cause)

Personnel issues
