Date & Time: 08/24/2020, 0930 CDT

Aircraft: Cessna R182
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Aerial Observation

On August 24, 2020, about 0930 central daylight time, a Cessna R182 airplane, N639RR, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Crowley, Louisiana. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 aerial observation flight.

According to the pilot, the preflight engine run-up and takeoff were normal. About 30 minutes into the aerial observation flight, the engine began "popping" and running rough. The pilot was unable to maintain sufficient engine RPMs and elected to return to the departure airport for a precautionary landing. Based on the airplane's location relative to the runway orientation, the pilot performed a downwind landing. During the approach, the airplane was "a little high and fast;" however, the pilot was committed to the landing due to the reduced engine performance. The airplane touched down, overran the end of the turf runway, impacted a ditch and came to rest upright.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings and the fuselage. Visual examination of the engine revealed the No. 4 engine cylinder exhaust valve push rod and housing were bent.

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida – Palm Beach County will be without one of its two Trauma Hawk air ambulances following an incident involving its landing gear Tuesday at the Aeromedical Hangar at Palm Beach International Airport.

The incident happened shortly before 2:30 p.m. after the helicopter was returned to its parking space at the hangar following a routine maintenance flight, Palm Beach County Health District spokeswoman Robin Kish said.

While at a complete stop with the engines off and the rotors coasting to a stop, the rotorcraft right main landing gear failed, causing the helicopter to tilt, she said.

The pilot applied the brake to stop the rotor system, and both the pilot and the mechanic safely exited the aircraft. The district notified the Federal Aviation Administration of the incident, Kish said.

Kish said damage to the rotorcraft is being assessed and it was not clear how long it will be out of service or how much it will cost to repair. The Health Care District's second Trauma Hawk is performing its normally scheduled operations, she said.

The district's two Sikorsky S76 C+ helicopters that have been in use since 1999. It plans to replace the air ambulances with two new ones by 2022.

In April, the district signed a $22,748,004 contract with Leonardo, an aerospace, defense and security company headquartered in Rome, for the purchase and manufacture of two light-intermediate AgustaWestland AW169 helicopters.

On August 24, 2020, about 1550 mountain daylight time, a Grumman G164B airplane, N2437D, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Ogallala, Nebraska. The commercial pilot was uninjured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 137 aerial application flight.

According to initial information, the airplane had flown earlier in the day and it was departing on a local flight. The engine lost power after takeoff during the climb. The pilot dumped the load of rye seed he was carrying, checked the magnetos, and made sure the fuel was on. He made an emergency landing in a cornfield about 1.85 miles from the airport. The surrounding terrain was flat. However, upon landing, the bottom wing impacted corn, which inverted the airplane. The pilot was uninjured during the crash and was wearing a 4-point harness and helmet.

The airframe and engine have been retained for further examination.

On August 24, 2020, about 1800 Pacific daylight time, a Kaman, K-1200 helicopter, N314, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Pine Grove, Oregon. The pilot was fatally injured. The helicopter was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 133 external load flight.

The helicopter was being operated under an exclusive use contract with the United States Forest Service (USFS), and had been conducting water bucket operations in support of the White River fire in Mt.

Tom Duffy, 40, a firefighting pilot and Seventh-day Adventist lay leader, was killed Monday in a helicopter crash while helping fight a wildfire in the Mount Hood National Forest.

The Type 1 K-Max helicopter was dropping buckets of water on the White River Fire, burning in rough terrain, when the crash occurred, U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Rachel Pawlitz said. There were no other individuals involved in the crash.

The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office and the forest service air and ground resources responded immediately to the crash site. No further information about the crash has been released at this time.

“The Adventist community in Bozeman is heartbroken by this tragic loss,” says Elden Ramirez, the Adventist Church president for Montana. “Our love and prayers are with Tom’s family and loved ones. Tom has a long history of dedicated service as an Adventist leader here in Montana and the Northwest and will be deeply missed.”

Duffy has served on the executive committee — the governing board — of the Adventist Church for Montana as well as for the North Pacific Union, the Adventist Church entity that oversees five states in the Northwest. Additionally, he served on the Adventist board of education in Montana.

Duffy’s work with and leading in his faith community isn’t a recent development. “Tom was a committed board member,” says Ramirez. “His love of family and God was very evident. Tom was a lay leader who devoted countless hours of his time and energy in faithful service.”

Duffy, a Bozeman native, attended Mount Ellis Adventist Academy and Montana State University, where he played basketball. In 2001, The Missoulian ran a story featuring his faithful Sabbath observance while playing college basketball.

In the story Duffy said, "Obviously the Lord has always been first in my life, then there's family and friends. But basketball is up there too."

Tom always kept the Lord first in his life even when it meant making significant sacrifices. His personal dedication and commitment will not be forgotten.

He was a loving husband and father. He is survived by his wife, Robyn, and their three children.

Wasco County Sheriff's Office
TYGH VALLEY, Oregon (August 25, 2020) — On August 24th, a pilot flying a Type 1 K-MAX helicopter on the White River Fire on Mt. Hood National Forest was killed while conducting bucket drops to help battle the blaze.

The pilot was the only individual onboard of the helicopter at the time of the crash. The helicopter was a private contractor rotorcraft operating under a Call When Needed agreement with federal agencies.

Wasco County Sheriff’s Office and USDA Forest Service responded immediately to the crash by sending air and ground resources to the scene. The crash site is in rugged terrain, and the safety of first responders is our priority at this time.

“Yesterday, we lost a member of our firefighting family in a tragic helicopter crash,” said Glenn Casamassa, Regional Forester for the Pacific Northwest Region of the USDA Forest Service. “We convey our deepest sympathy to the family, incident management team, firefighters, friends and emergency responders involved. The courage to selflessly protect lives and property are respected and admired. Their ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten. Firefighting is dangerous work and risk is well known to those who fight the flames. We honor, we remember, we support the families and their loved ones. We affirm that we are a community and that the family is part of the firefighting family as well.”

A Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is in effect to protect firefighter safety, so we are reminding people that it is critical not to fly in the vicinity of White River Fire.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have been notified and the USDA Forest Service will be working with the National Transportation Safety Board to investigate further. As official reports become available, we will share more information.

We are working with the family on notifications and ask the media to respect their privacy during their time of bereavement.

"We don't ever forget those people that are protecting our public lands and are on the front lines for us and our local communities," said Wasco County Sheriff Lane Magill.

A Critical Incident Stress Management team will be assisting firefighters working on the incident.

The White River Fire, located is 13 miles SW of Government Camp in the White River drainage near Forest Road 48, is currently 1,289 acres and 15 % containment. There are 354 personnel engaged in the firefighting efforts. Level 1 evacuations are in effect for Sportmans Park, which is approximately 8 miles east of the fire. Three additional Type 1 helicopters, including another K-MAX, and one Type 3 helicopter are still actively supporting suppression efforts on the fire.

While air resources such as these helicopters may be assigned to help with a specific fire, they are managed as an interagency pool that are flexible and responsive, often assisting with other fires when the opportunity and need arises.

Please respect area, road, recreation site, and trail closures surrounding the White River Fire which are in place to protect the safety of the public, firefighters, and first responders.
