Location: Little Rock, AR

Incident Number: CEN16IA091
Date & Time: 01/12/2016, 0930 CST
Registration: N200LP
Aircraft: MITSUBISHI MU 300
Aircraft Damage: Minor
Defining Event: Powerplant sys/comp malf/fail
Injuries: 4 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 135: Air Taxi & Commuter - Non-scheduled 

On January 12, 2016, about 0930 central standard time, a Mitsubishi MU300 airplane, N200LP, experienced an engine fire during the takeoff roll from Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field (LIT), Little Rock, Arkansas. The two flight crewmembers and two passengers on-board were not injured. The airplane incurred minor damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by Central Flying Service Inc. under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 as an on-demand air taxi. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which operated on an instrument flight rules flight plan. The flight was destined for Lake Charles Regional Airport (LCH), Lake Charles, Louisiana.


The flight crew reported that the airplane was fueled, and the flight crew completed a walk around inspection of the airplane. After taxiing to runway 18, the flight crew advanced the throttles to takeoff power and began the takeoff roll. A "couple seconds later" the flight crew heard a "grumble" and the airplane began shaking. The passengers in the back of the airplane reported to the flight crew that they saw flames coming out of the of the right engine. The flight crew stopped the airplane and shut down the engines while the airplane was still on the runway.


After the airplane was towed off of the runway, the crew noticed the right engine had ingested a fuel mat that was left on the inboard trailing edge of the wing by the airplane fuelers. The fuel mats were placed on the wing after the flight crew's preflight inspection was accomplished, and the flight crew had not noticed the mats during the visual inspection of the fuel caps due to their location on the trailing edge of the wing.


To prevent a similar occurrence in the future, the operator implemented a change to the General Operations Manual. Guidance was added to the "Fuel" section, that included:


"… After fueling the crew will do a complete inspection of the exterior of the aircraft to ensure wings are clear of foreign objects and damage has not occurred during fueling."

Incident occurred November 02, 2019 at Myrtle Beach International Airport (KMYR), Horry County, South Carolina

MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina (WBTW) – A United 737 flight had to be diverted to Myrtle Beach International Airport Saturday following ‘electrical issues,’ airport officials said.

The plane- which was heading to Newark from Orlando- landed in Myrtle Beach just before noon, Director of Air Service and Business Development Kirk Lovell told News13.

All 83 passengers were offloaded onto the tarmac before being taken into the terminal, Kirk said. No one was hurt in the incident.

Kirk said these kinds of diversions are usually a safety precaution. He added crews are looking into what caused the electrical problems, as passengers try to sort out their travel plans.

On April 16, 2015, about 2245 mountain daylight time, a Fairchild SA227-AC, twin-engine airplane, N2691W, operating as Key Lime flight 168, was substantially damaged after an uncontained engine failure during climb near Rifle, Colorado. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was registered to CBG LLC, Wilsonville, Oregon, and was operated by Key Lime Air Corporation, Englewood, Colorado. Dark, night, instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) prevailed at the time of the accident and an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan had been filed for the Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 scheduled cargo flight. The airplane departed from Garfield County Regional Airport (RIL), Rifle, Colorado, at 2237 and was destined for Denver International Airport (DEN), Denver, Colorado

The pilot reported that during a climb, when still well below the tops of nearby mountains, he heard a "bang" followed by a complete loss of power and engine fire indications from the right engine. After completing appropriate checklist items, the pilot declared an emergency and diverted to Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT), Grand Junction, Colorado, for an instrument approach and landing at 2311. The airplane landed without further incident.

A post accident examination of the airplane revealed the second stage turbine rotor from the right engine had separated. One portion of the rotor exited through the left side of the engine and nacelle structure, penetrated the right side of the fuselage, and came to rest inside the fuselage wall. Other portions of the separated rotor exited through the right side of the engine. There was thermal damage to the engine and the inside of the nacelle structure, but no evidence of a sustained fire in that area. The examination of the turbine engine noted fatigue cracks on the 2nd stage rotor disk. The rotor disk had a reported 3,901.4 hrs., and 4,143 cycles.

DAY 8 
UPDATE
November 01, 2019

Please keep sharing any tips you have that will contribute to our search here: comehomekandj@gmail.com.

Today, the Execushield team, along with the family and friends of Kayla and Justin, established the #FindKandJ Search and Rescue command post in Fort Bragg, California. We have mobilized, and executed the following:

Chartered one (1) helicopter to perform an inland aerial search through Mendocino, California, Branscomb, California, Laytonville, California, Wheeler, California, Rockport, California, Westport, California, Inglenook, California, Cleone, California, and along the coastline. 

Chartered two (2) fixed planes to perform a coordinated aerial search from the coastline to five (5) miles off the coast, and two (2) miles inland to three (3) miles inland. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS VIA GoFundMe TO MAKE THESE EFFORTS POSSIBLE! 

Canvassed our most recent flyer across Mendocino, California, Petaluma, California, Hopland, California, Ukiah, California, Fort Bragg, California and various rest stops and campgrounds along the way.

A MASSIVE thank you to the entire Execushield team for their integrity, expertise and efforts. Additionally, thank you to San Francisco Police Department and Civil Air Patrol for their continued investigative efforts. You all are awesome! 

And again, we would like to thank EVERYONE who has contributed shares, prayers and donations to the #FindKandJ initiative. We have another big day ahead Saturday.






27-year-old Kayla Rodriguez, a delivery nurse at CPMC Mission Bernal Campus in San Francisco, told friends she was heading out on an adventure.  She and her friend and landlord, 43-year-old Justin Winfrey, were flying north to have dinner. The pair climbed on Winfrey's plane at Gnoss Field in Novato at around 6 p.m. on October 24th.

Friends and family of a missing nurse and her companion will hold a prayer service and vigil Sunday for the pair in San Francisco.

A plane carrying Justin Winfrey, a leader in San Francisco's African American community, and Kayla Rodriguez, a delivery nurse at CPMC Mission Bernal Campus, disappeared off radar over the Lost Coast in Mendocino County the night of October 24.

The two were last seen at the Gyppo Ale Mill restaurant in Shelter Cove, a small coastal town in Humboldt County. They were reportedly headed to the Brooktrails Airport near Willits.

Sheriff's officials say the plane dropped off radar at about 9:20 p.m. approximately five miles off the coast between Rockport and Wheeler. A Coast Guard search was discontinued due to bad weather and lack of resources.

The plane was piloted by Winfrey, who grew up in San Francisco and was described as a "beloved member of the community, known for his generosity."

"He loves to fly planes and would gladly take anyone from the community, many of whom had never been on an airplane, and give them a tour," according to Sam Singer, publicist for the service.

The vigil and prayer service and vigil will be led by the Rev. Amos C. Brown at 4 p.m. at Third Baptist Church, 1399 McAllister St., San Francisco. The public is invited to attend.

The purpose is to "encourage hope and to encourage local searchers to continue their quest, hopefully to find the couple alive," Singer said in a statement.
