On Friday, we broke the news of a Piper PA-28-140 making an emergency landing on the Sawgrass Expressway.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, at 10:33 p.m. a call came in about an emergency landing that had been performed by an airplane eastbound on the Sawgrass Expressway, just west of University Drive.

The pilot, a 29-year-old male, had a mechanical issue that affected the flow of fuel, and not being able to return to his home base safely, was forced to land the aircraft on the Sawgrass Expressway.

The pilot was able to perform the landing without affecting any of the traffic at the time, and the pilot suffered no injuries.

The right and center lanes were blocked at the time of the landing until the airplane was safely removed from the roadway and onto the median shoulder.

https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca

Location: Sumter, SC
Accident Number: ERA20LA270
Date & Time: 08/01/2020, 1000 EDT
Registration: C-GXKS
Aircraft: Piper PA31
Injuries: 2 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Aerial Observation

On August 1, 2020, about 1000 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-31-325, Canadian registration C-GXKS, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Sumter, South Carolina. The pilot and co-pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 aerial observation flight.

According to the pilot-in-command (PIC), he and the co-pilot had been flying mapping flights for the United States Geological Survey group. The PIC stated they had scanners weighing about 800 lbs on board and they would fly about 300 ft. above ground level in a grid pattern while mapping. He further stated that he personally fueled the inboard and outboard fuel tanks the day before the accident flight. On the morning of the accident flight, the PIC was seated in the right seat and the co-pilot was seated in the left seat. They departed Santee Cooper Regional Airport (MNI), Manning, South Carolina about 0630 and planned on returning to the same airport. After 2 hours of flight time, they switched from the inboard fuel tanks to the outboard fuel tanks. After another 1.5 hours of flight time, while the co-pilot was flying, the left engine started "surging" and rapidly began to lose power. The airplane immediately began to lose altitude and shortly after they had descended below the tree level. The PIC took control of the airplane and turned to a field just ahead of them. The airplane stalled just above the ground and the right wing contacted the ground first. The PIC stated both side windows shattered during impact and within 2 seconds the right outboard fuel tank exploded and a postimpact fire ensued. Both pilots egressed through the rear door.

The co-pilot stated he was training in the airplane and did not have a multiengine rating. He stated he did not have any official hours flying the airplane with an instructor but has flown the airplane for about 200 hours. His description of the accident flight was consistent with that provided by the PIC. He further stated that when he turned over control of the airplane to the PIC during the last few seconds of flight, he looked at the inboard fuel tank quantity gauges and they were both reading "zero."

Postaccident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed that the airplane impacted the ground with the right wing first and slid sideways through the field. Both engines were fractured off and neither engine showed signs of power at the time of impact. The fuselage and right wing were consumed by fire. The left wing was still attached to the fuselage and not damaged. The left outboard fuel tank was completely full of fuel, and the inboard tank was empty.

The airplane has been retained for further examination.

Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six C, N4817S: Accident occurred August 10, 2020 at Montauk Airport (KMTP), Suffolk County, New York


https://registry.faa.gov/N4817S

NTSB Identification: ERA20CA282

14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Monday, August 10, 2020 in Montauk, NY
Aircraft: Piper PA32, registration: N4817S

NTSB investigators will use data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator, and will not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.



Three people escaped injury when a small plane they were in crashed as it landed at the Montauk Airport Monday afternoon.

The Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six C skidded off the runway and careened into the brush on the side of the runway at the East Lake Drive airport.

According to FlightAware.com, the plane took off from Westchester County Airport at 11:35 a.m. and touched down in Montauk at 12:15 p.m. The pilot told police he was landing when the plane hit a windshear, hit a wing, and went off the runway.

Both wings were badly damaged, but the fuel line appeared to be untouched.

The Montauk Airport is closed until the plane can be towed. A woman who answered the phone at the airport said no one was hurt and that “it was more of an incident.” The FAA will conduct a routine investigation.

The Montauk Fire Department received a report of a crash at about 12:45 p.m. (The discrepancy in time is unclear). Emergency medical service personnel responded and checked out the pilot and two passengers on board. No one was transported to the hospital, Chief Mickey Valcich said through a spokesman.

Two pumpers and fire police personnel also responded. The East Hampton Town police also responded.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration’s website, the plane is owned by Rick Oliver of Pearl River, which is located in Rockland County, New York. Police confirmed Oliver was the pilot.

The Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six C had made several trips over the past week, including a trip from Westchester to Montauk on August 3rd, and then a return trip just a few hours later.

Aircraft: Cessna 170
Injuries: 2 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

On August 13, 2020, about 1745 central daylight time, a Cessna 170, N3962V, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Ardmore, Tennessee. The pilot and passenger received minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot, along with his uncle, and a dog, were going to fly from a grass field on a friend's property in Ardmore, Tennessee to Moontown Airport (3M5), Huntsville, Alabama.

According to the pilot, he had purchased the airplane about 5 days before on August 8, 2020, and this was the first time he had operated from the field. He had about 10 to 15 gallons of fuel per side (20 to 30 gallons total) onboard prior to takeoff. The grass was dry, and the wind was calm. Visual meteorological conditions existed. The engine run-up was normal. During the takeoff roll, when the airplane reached 50 to 60 mph, he rotated and established a climb rate. The airspeed then began to decay, and there was inadequate thrust to achieve an acceptable rate of climb at an adequate airspeed. This resulted in him performing a forced landing in a small horse pasture. The pilot did not recall any changes in engine noise prior to the accident.

Examination of photographs of the airplane provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), revealed that during the landing the airplane had landed hard, the left main landing gear had collapsed and the airplane had impacted the ground with the left wingtip, nose, and right wingtip, and had come to rest upright. Further examination of the photographs also revealed that the wing flaps were fully retracted (0°) position, and the airplane had incurred substantial damage to the engine mounts, firewall, wings, and fuselage.

Examination of photographs of the engine provided by the FAA, revealed that the crankshaft displayed a partial fracture just aft of the propeller flange. The fracture was visibly twisted, and the fracture face displayed a 45° angle to the longitudinal axis of the crankshaft.

A cursory examination of the engine by an FAA inspector revealed that the sparkplugs looked new. Drivetrain continuity was confirmed, and all the pistons would move when the crankshaft was rotated.

Review of satellite images of the accident location indicated that the field the airplane departed from was oriented in a north-south direction. The elevation was about 896 feet above mean sea level, and it was about 1,230 feet long. Obstacles existed along the departure path the pilot flew (about 180°), in the form of a driveway, trees, and buildings.

The recorded weather at Fayetteville Municipal Airport (FYM), Fayetteville, Tennessee, located 13 nautical miles east of the accident site, at 1755, included: wind 150° at 3 knots, 10 miles visibility, sky clear, temperature 31° C, dew point 21°C, and an altimeter setting of 29.96 inches of mercury.
