The pilot was conducting an alligator nesting survey at about 30 ft above the ground (AGL) when there was a partial loss of engine power. He successfully autorotated to the swampy terrain where the helicopter settled to the left when the left skid sunk into the ground. The main rotor blades subsequently impacted the ground. The main rotor pitch links were damaged when the main rotors hit the ground, substantially damaging the helicopter. The helicopter was retained for further examination.

The pilot reported that, while maneuvering at low altitude on the leeward side of a ridge to follow elk, he encountered a downdraft and the airplane slightly pitched up and the airspeed decreased. The pilot lowered the nose attitude, applied full engine power, and turned away from the hill, however the airplane's descent rate continued to increase. Near the ground, the pilot tried to flare in ground effect but the descent rate did not slow as expected and the airplane landed hard, bending the left main landing gear under the airplane and substantially damaging the left wing when it struck the ground.

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

A small plane crashed on the Hanford nuclear reservation around noon Sunday when it flew too low trying to look at the site’s elk herd.

The two people on the single-engine plane were not hurt, said the Benton County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.

The pilot was David Lake, 48, of Yakima, and the passenger was Leon Hudon, 87 of Wapato.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was a Rans S-6ES Coyote II.

Lake and Hudon told officials they were checking out the elk in the area, got too low and a gust of wind caught the plane, causing it to veer into the ground at the base of Rattlesnake Mountain.

One of the wheels came off when it hit the ground and then the nose hit the ground, according to the sheriff’s office.

Benton County Sheriff's Office

Our office responded to the Hanford site this afternoon reference a single-engine plane that had crashed at the base of Rattlesnake Mountain. The two occupants of the plane were uninjured in the incident, but the plane was heavily damaged. From their statements, the occupants were checking out the Elk in the area, got too low and a gust of wind caught the plane causing it to veer into the ground. Notifications were made to the FAA and Hanford Patrol. Our office will be handling the collection of information and assisted by Wildlife Fish and Game with photos. Due to the ongoing investigation, we are not releasing any names at this time. From those involved it does appear to be an accident at this time and does not appear to be impairment related.

On July 3, 2020, about 0830 central daylight time, an Air Tractor AT-602 airplane, N8506E, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Des Arc, Arkansas. The pilot was not injured. The airplane operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 137 as an aerial application flight.

According to information provided by the pilot, after completing the aerial application he flew to survey another field. On the second turn over the field, the engine lost power and the pilot noted that the fuel pressure was zero. He leveled the wings and turned on the fuel boost pump restoring fuel pressure and engine power. Due to the proximity of the ground, the pilot performed a forced landing to the field. During the landing, substantial damage was sustained to the left wing.

The airplane was retained for further examination.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

The pilot of a tailwheel equipped airplane reported that, during the landing roll with a crosswind, he utilized full right aileron input to maintain directional control. The airplane encountered a gust of wind from the right that lifted the right wing, and the left wing dropped and impacted the runway surface. The airplane then began to veer to the right. While the pilot was attempting to correct, the airplane nosed over.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings, right lift strut, vertical stabilizer and rudder.

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

Cortland County Sheriff's Office

On Monday morning, July 13th, 2020, at approximately 9:58 AM, the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Cortland County Airport for a report of a plane crash. The preliminary investigation revealed that the single engine aircraft, which was occupied by both the pilot and co-pilot, had originated its flight from the Cortland County Airport. While after take-off, both the pilot and co-pilot had reported windy conditions and decided to land the aircraft in a field west of the runway, staying on Cortland County Airport Property. While landing the aircraft, both the pilot and co-pilot were unable to control the aircraft, and the aircraft went into a skid where the aircraft did sustain damage coming to its final rest. The pilot, who at this time his name is not being released, is being treated for both leg and back pain and was later transported by TLC to Guthrie Cortland Regional Medical Center where his injuries are not being considered life threatening at this time. The co-pilot, was not reporting any injuries.

The investigation is continuing and Investigators with the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office were in contact with the FAA, where they responded and assisted with the investigation. Due to the plane crash, the Cortland County Airport was closed for approximately 3 ½ hours before the plane could be removed and the runway reopened.
