The pilot reported that, while on short final for a precautionary landing to an alternate airport covered with snow, with "extra speed" and about 10 feet above the ground, the airplane suddenly descended, landed hard, and bounced. The right main landing gear tire touched down again, caught the snow, and the airplane veered left. He then initiated a go-around, but the airplane struck a fence and impacted terrain.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.

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 on an airport about 22 nm away, reported that, about 20 minutes before the accident, the wind was 300° at 6 knots. The pilot reported the wind was blowing hard from 270°. The airplane landed on runway 27.

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A JetBlue flight headed to New York was forced to reverse course and make an emergency landing after being struck by lightning just after takeoff from Los Angeles International Airport Thursday morning amid a thunderstorm which pummeled the Southland.

JetBlue Flight No. 324 bound for John F. Kennedy International Airport was forced to turn around and return to LAX after its crew reported the aircraft had been hit by lightning, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed.

An LAX spokesperson told CBS2 that the plane — which had 153 people aboard and 36,000 pounds of fuel — safely landed a little after 11 a.m. There was no word of any injuries. According to FlightAware, the plane had taken off at 10:10 a.m. and was only airborne for about 55 minutes.

“No, it’s going to be an overweight landing, pretty much it, don’t know if we have any damage here,” the pilot radioed in to air traffic control in audio obtained by CBS2. “That’s our reason for going back.”

“Hopefully, lightning doesn’t strike twice,” he added.

JetBlue confirmed the incident in its own statement.

“Crews will inspect the aircraft and determine if it may continue on to New York or if customers will be accommodated on another aircraft,” JetBlue wrote.

The plane was still parked at LAX as of 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, a second passenger jet out of LAX was also struck by lightning Thursday morning. A Southwest Airlines flight from LAX to Portland was forced to make an emergency landing in Oakland. No injuries were reported in that incident as well.

Injuries: 1 Minor, 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On January 8, 2019, about 1000 central standard time, a Robinson R44 II helicopter, N484AB, experienced a hard landing during an autorotation shortly after takeoff from Garner Field Airport, Uvalde, Texas. The flight instructor sustained minor injuries, the student pilot was not injured, and the helicopter sustained substantial damage. The helicopter was registered to and operated by a private individual as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and a flight plan was not filed. The local flight was originating at the time of the accident.

According to the flight instructor, all pre-takeoff checks were normal with no anomalies noted. Once the helicopter was through effective translational lift and about 40 knots airspeed, the collective was raised to increase the available power to takeoff power setting. Shortly thereafter, a loud pop/bang was heard followed by an uncommanded right yaw and severe vibrations. Due to the low altitude and airspeed, the flight instructor immediately initiated an autorotation. Upon touchdown, the helicopter tilted forward with the main rotor blades about 6 inches from contacting the ground. The flight instructor applied aft cyclic to correct, and the main rotor blades contacted the tailboom.

Postaccident examination of the helicopter revealed the tailboom was partially separated, and the tail rotor driveshaft system was damaged. During the examination, the clutch assembly lubricant was drained and an unusual amount of metallic debris was noted in the strainer. The clutch assembly was removed and sent to Robinson Helicopter Company for further examination.

Examination and disassembly of the clutch assembly revealed galling of the sprags and the corresponding sprag contact surfaces on the shaft and hub.

According to the Robinson R44 maintenance manual, the clutch assemblies are to be inspected for metallic flakes every 500 hours. The most recent inspection on the clutch assembly was completed on April 18, 2018, about 245 hours prior to the accident.

On January 8, 2019, about 1000 central standard time, a Robinson R44 II helicopter, experienced a hard landing during an autorotation following a loss of tail rotor effectiveness while maneuvering shortly after takeoff from Garner Field Airport, Uvalde, Texas. The flight instructor sustained minor injuries, the student pilot was not injured, and the helicopter sustained substantial damage. The helicopter was registered to and operated by a private individual as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight.

The helicopter was recovered to a helicopter maintenance facility. During the examination, the clutch lubricant was drained and an unusual amount of metallic debris was noted in the strainer. The clutch was removed and sent to Robinson Helicopter Company for further examination.

Beechcraft V35B Bonanza, N18493: Accident occurred January 30, 2019 at Modesto City-County Airport (KMOD), Stanislaus County, California

Doncam Consulting LLC

https://registry.faa.gov/N18493








MODESTO (CBS13) – A small unmanned plane crashed at Modesto Airport Wednesday afternoon.

A pair of pilots were reportedly working on the electrical system of a Beechcraft V35B Bonanza, manipulating the propeller, but said it wouldn’t start. When the pilots walked away, the propeller suddenly engaged on its own and taxied away, hitting a car and a fence.

The pilots told police the plane took off at speeds around 40 miles per hour. The plane was moving toward the busy Mitchell Road after it clipped the parked car.

“If it was to get over that [grass] and get onto Mitchell, we would really have had a problem on our hands trying to stop that plane with nobody inside it,” said Sgt. Mark Phillips with the Modesto Police Department.

Phillips said it was a good thing the plane hit the vehicle because it changed direction, diverting the plane from a hanger that was occupied at the time of the incident. Two structures were damaged by the plane, but no one was hurt in the crash.

The building belongs to DC Air, which is owned by Dan Costa of 5-11 Tactical. He was apparently inside at the time of the crash along with numerous other people.

The plane is registered to Doncam Consulting, LLC in Modesto, according to the FAA database. The FAA went to the scene to investigate the crash and wrapped up their investigation Wednesday afternoon. There is no official word on what caused the plane to take off.

The plane suffered extensive damage in the incident.

Heavy machinery was on its way to the airport to lift the damaged plane out.

Story and video: https://gooddaysacramento.cbslocal.com








Emergency responders are at the scene of a plane crash at the Modesto Airport. The plane, which was being prepped for a flight, was not airborne when it crashed, authorities said.

“At approximately 2:15 p.m. this afternoon, Modesto and Stanislaus Consolidated fire departments were dispatched to a report of a possible plane down here at Modesto City-County Airport, Modesto Fire Department Division Chief Mike Lillie said at the scene.

Nobody was inside the plane when it started rolling away in a southerly direction, Lillie said.

The small propeller plane rolled on the airport grounds until it hit a fence in the area of South Riverside Drive and Mitchell Road.

A small fuel leak was quickly contained.

Lillie said firefighters are working with Modesto Police to secure the scene and the airport.

Defining Event: Loss of control on ground
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

Analysis 

The pilot reported that, during the landing roll, the tailwheel-equipped airplane began to ground loop to the left. He corrected with opposite rudder and aileron and regained control of the airplane, but the airplane started to veer right. The pilot added that, while the airplane was veering right toward the edge of the runway, he assumed the snow on the adjacent field was compacted and would efficiently slow the airplane, so he let the airplane exit the runway to the right; however, the snow was "softer than [he] anticipated," and the airplane nosed over.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right-wing lift strut.

The pilot 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 system reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 020ยบ at 3 knots. The pilot landed the airplane on runway 20. 

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's improper decision to allow the airplane to exit the runway onto a snow-covered field, which resulted in a nose-over.

Findings

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Business 

On January 12, 2019, about 1130 central standard time, a Canadair CL-600-2A12, N813WT, owned by a limited liability company and operated by an airline transport pilot, impacted terrain following a runway excursion at the Ox Ranch Airport (01TX), Uvalde, Texas. The captain, first officer flight attendant, and 6 passengers on board were not injured and the airplane sustained substantial damaged. The airplane was operated as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 charter flight.
