Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Aerial Observation - Sightseeing 

On November 16, 2019, about 1430 mountain standard time, a North American SNJ-4 airplane, N694US, was substantially damaged during landing at the Heber Valley Airport (HCR), Heber City, Utah. The airline transport pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Wasatch Flyers LLC under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed an no flight plan was filed for the air tour flight. The local flight originated from HCR about 1400.

The pilot reported that prior to entering the airport traffic pattern, he listened to the airports automated weather observing system, noting the wind was from 340° at 9 knots. The pilot entered the airport traffic pattern for runway 4, a 6,898 ft long and 75 ft wide asphalt runway. Following an uneventful 3-point landing in the tailwheel equipped airplane, the pilot let the airplane roll out and decelerate without applying brakes. About 500 to 700 ft. after touchdown, the airplane veered to the left and despite the pilot's control inputs, exited the left side of the runway. Subsequently the right main landing gear separated, and the airplane came to rest upright.

Examination of the airplane by the pilot revealed that the right wing was structurally damaged. The rudder to tailwheel link rod was found separated from the rudder control horn. The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.

The airplane was registered to RTW Capital LLC and operated by a private individual under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which operated under flight following. The flight originated from Sugar Land Regional Airport, Houston, Texas, about 1715 CST and was en route to Grier Airport (71TX), Boerne, Texas.

While en route to 71TX, the pilot reported to San Antonio Approach Control that he was experienced an engine failure and declared an emergency. The pilot was cleared to land on runway 13R and radar tracked the pilot as he aligned to land. During the approach to landing, the airplane rapidly descended and impacted terrain. Several eyewitnesses reported seeing the airplane in a near 90° bank angle before spiraling to the ground. Video camera footage captured the airplane impacting terrain in a near vertical attitude.

All major airplane components were located at the accident site. The airplane was recovered to a secure facility for further examination.

Maureen McFarren Garrow 



SPRING, Texas (KTRK) -- Friends of the Spring woman killed in Sunday's plane crash in San Antonio are mourning the loss of the beloved pilot and remember her as being her happiest when she was flying.

Dan Jones was a longtime friend of 71-year-old Maureen Garrow. He administered her tests when she became certified as a private pilot and when she became an instructor.

"I always got good reports from the people that flew with her, how much they enjoyed her and enjoyed her demeanor, because not all flight instructors are as calm and reserved as she is," Jones said.

Garrow, 71, was killed along with two other people when their plane went down on the Northside of San Antonio.

Robert Womble, 38, and Eric Naranjo, 22, were also killed.

The airplane reported engine issues before the pilot attempted to land at San Antonio International Airport.

According to friends, Garrow didn't discover her love for flying until later in life.

"I think she was able to blossom in her later years as a person who was fulfilling her dreams," Jones said.

Jones said when Garrow came to him for her tests, he could tell she had worked hard to prepare and was excited to showcase what she knew. Beyond the cockpit, the two became friends.

When he heard that there was a possibility that Garrow might have been one of the victims in the crash, he was in denial.

Jones sent a text message to his friend Monday, about 24 hours after the crash, asking if she was okay.

"I was hoping it wouldn't be her, but as it turned out it was," Jones said.

Garrow's funeral is set for December 17th at 2:00 p.m. at the Klein Funeral Homes & Memorial in Spring.

SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the third victim of a deadly plane crash that occurred Sunday in San Antonio.

On Wednesday, the 71-year-old woman who died in the crash was identified as Maureen McFarren Garrow, who died of multiple blunt force injuries. The other victims were previously identified as 38-year-old Robert Tyson Womble and 22-year-old Eric Naranjo, a UTSA student.

Garrow is a commercial pilot and a flight instructor, according to Federal Aviation Administration records.

The flight took off Sunday from Sugar Land and headed toward Boerne, Fire Chief Charles Hood previously said.

The pilot, who is believed to be Womble, activated an alert and notified San Antonio International Airport traffic controllers that he had an engine failure.

“Engine failure, I need to land at international (airport),” the pilot said.

The air traffic controller asks him which runway he can land at, and the man tells him, “we can circle around for runway 4.” That runway is on the southwest corner of the airport.

Shortly after that, the air traffic controller loses contact with the pilot.

According to the flight path provided by FlightAware, the plane reached the airport, but looped around before landing. It would fall short of the runway, crashing into a street. The flight log shows the plane nose-diving at more than 1,800 feet per minute.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash and plans to release a preliminary report in the coming days.

SAN ANTONIO — The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office has identified 38-year-old Robert Tyson Womble as one of the victims of the small plane crash that killed three people near the San Antonio airport on Sunday evening. 

Property tax records show Womble owned a home in Central East Austin near Berkman Drive and Highway 290.  

The medical examiner has not released the identity of the other two victims but friends said 22-year-old Eric Naranjo, a University of Texas - San Antonio student from Sugar Land, died in the plane crash as well.

A 71-year-old woman is the third victim.

According to the airport's public information officer and the Federal Aviation Administration, that plane was registered in Austin. It was registered to an LLC, RTW Capital with an address in Austin. A state database showed that LLC is associated with a boutique investment firm, Aktivum Capital Group.

The single-engine aircraft carrying three people on board was flying from Sugar Land headed to Boerne before it crashed just before 6:30 p.m. after an in-flight emergency, according to the San Antonio spokesperson.

The plane took off from Sugar Land and was headed to Boerne, Texas, when the pilot noticed some kind of engine problem. The pilot then reportedly declared an emergency, indicating that there was a mechanical or engine issue.

In radio traffic communication, we can hear the pilot tell the tower they need to make an emergency landing at the San Antonio airport.

Pilot: "7 8 Papa, we've got an emergency."

Tower: "7 8 Papa, what is the nature of your emergency?"    

Pilot: "Engine failure. We need to land at International."

Tower: "Which runway would you like?"

Pilot: "We can circle around for Runway 4."

But the pilot never made it to Runway 4. The plane crashed about a quarter to half a mile away.

NTSB investigators will be looking into what caused the crash, but won't be on-scene until Tuesday, December 3rd. 

A preliminary report is expected in about 10 days. A cause of the crash could come in 12 to 24 months.

As a tow truck lifted pieces of a Piper PA-24-250 Comanche onto a flatbed trailer early Tuesday, a federal investigator said its deadly and rapid descent near San Antonio International Airport will be examined — as dozens of similar crashes are every year.

“We look at the pilot, the machine and the environment,” National Transportation Safety Board investigator Jason Aguilera said early Tuesday in the 600 block of West Rhapsody Drive, where the plane crashed Sunday evening in clear, calm weather.

HOUSTON – Days after a small plane crash killed three people near San Antonio, KPRC 2 learned more about the third victim — 71-year-old Maureen Garrow of Spring, Texas. Garrow was an avid private pilot and flight instructor whose passion was to teach, according to her loved ones.

On Sunday, Garrow was with 38-year-old Austin businessman Robert Tyson Womble, believed to be in the pilot’s seat, and his company intern, 22-year-old Eric Naranjo, when the plane went down in San Antonio.

On the day of the accident, Maureen’s husband Ronald told KPRC 2 his wife left for Hooks Memorial Airport to lead a training. Officials said the plane was on its way to Boerne from Hooks but made a brief stop in Sugar Land Regional Airport before attempting an unsuccessful emergency stop at the San Antonio International Airport.

Ronald, 75, said his wife of 48 years, Maureen, had the true heart of a teacher and loved to fly.

She was a two-time accredited National Aviation Flight Instructors Master Flight Instructor who Ronald said was on a mission to groom students to become top professional pilots. She was a treasured member of the “tight-knit” local flight community he said. The Spring resident earned her colleagues’ respect as a tenacious private pilot and independent flight instructor.  Ronald said he was also a cherished mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Aircraft: Piper PA28
Injuries:1 None 
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On December 2, 2019, about 1240 eastern standard time, a Piper PA-28-161, N558PU, was substantially damaged during a forced landing in a field at Vero Beach, Florida. The private pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated by FlightSafety International under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a solo-instructional flight. Day, visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the flight. The flight originated at La Belle Municipal Airport (X14), La Belle, Florida about 1130 and was destined for Vero Beach Regional Airport (VRB), Vero Beach, Florida.

According to the operator, the pilot departed VRB earlier in the day for a solo, cross-country flight. He took off from VRB with full fuel tanks (48 useable gallons) and landed uneventfully at X14. He intended to switch fuel tanks one hour into the flight, contrary to the flight school's policy of every 30 minutes. He forgot to switch tanks prior to landing at X14 and did not switch tanks on the ground at X14 prior to departure. During the return flight to VRB, he again did not switch fuel tanks. While in the traffic pattern at VRB, the engine lost all power and quit. Unable to glide to runway 4, he performed a forced landing in a field to the south of the airport. During the landing roll, the airplane collided with a tree, separating the left wing from the airframe.

An inspector with the Federal Aviation Administration responded to the accident site and examined the wreckage. Both wings and the fuselage were structurally damaged. The left wing fuel tank was not breached and contained no fuel. The right wing fuel tank was completely full of fuel. The cockpit fuel selector handle was found in the left tank position.

The wreckage was retained for further examination.

VERO BEACH, Florida — Zhuang Qu brought both of his hands up to his face in shock. The 22-year-old student pilot seemed stunned and without words.

About 45 minutes prior Monday afternoon, Qu was piloting a Piper PA-28-161 Warrior III enroute to Vero Beach Regional Airport from an airport in Okeechobee County on what flight safety officials told police is his first solo flight.

Suddenly, the aircraft lost power, police officials said. 

This was not the first time that exact plane lost power in flight. In November 2018, the aircraft's engine experienced a partial power loss, according to records from the Federal Aviation Administration. The pilot at that time was able to land the plane safely. It's unclear from records where that happened.

An inspection later found a crack in one of the engine's cylinders led to the power loss, FAA records showed. The cylinder was then "replaced with a serviceable part." 

Now, just over a year later, Qu brought the plane down into a field.

"The plane lost power and he decided to bring it here instead of crashing it into a residential area," said Master Police Officer Darrell Rivers. "He found a safe place to land, and so here we are." 

Qu was able to land the airplane into a clearing in the 4100 block of Aviation Boulevard just south of 26th Street, successfully avoiding nearby residential areas.  The airplane clipped a tree on its way down, ripping off its left wing. While debris from the plane was scattered across the open field, Qu was unharmed.   The plane is registered to FlightSafety International Inc, a flight school with a training academy at Vero Beach Regional Airport.

The Treasure Coast has been no stranger to plane crashes in recent months. 

A March 5 plane crash left one FlightSafety Academy student pilot dead after a Piper PA-28 Cherokee crashed deep in the woods south of Vero Lake Estates.

A pilot of a rare military aircraft died in Stuart, November 1st, as his plane crashed while he was practicing for the Audi Stuart Air Show. A final report for that particular crash from the National Transportation Safety Board could take more than a year.

The pilot reported that, while landing, the airplane encountered a crosswind gust and drifted left. At touchdown, a second gust lifted the right wing, the airplane drifted off the runway centerline, and the left wing impacted grass. The pilot added power; however, the left wing continued to drag in the grass, the airplane exited the runway, and the landing gear collapsed. Examination of the wings revealed substantial damage due to delamination of both wing spars. 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 station reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 260° at 20 kts with gusts to 28 kts. The pilot was landing the airplane on runway 19, which resulted in a crosswind component of 19 kts gusting to 26 kts. The manufacturer's pilot's operating handbook stated, "The maximum allowable crosswind velocity is dependent upon pilot capability as well as aircraft limitations. Operation in direct crosswinds of 20 knots has been demonstrated."
