Registration: N194HC
Aircraft: Robinson R22
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On September 6, 2020, about 0900 eastern daylight time, a Robinson R22 Mariner helicopter, N194HC, was involved in an accident at Page Field (FMY), Fort Myers, Florida. The flight instructor and pilot receiving instruction were not injured. The instructional flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

Both pilots submitted written statements, and their versions of events were consistent throughout. The preflight and engine-start procedures were completed by the checklist with no anomalies noted. As the engine was accelerated to near its operating rpm, each pilot heard a loud "bang." The student leaned out his door and announced that "the tail was hanging off the back of the aircraft." The engine was stopped, and the event was reported to the helicopter's owner and his mechanic.

Examination of photographs revealed damage to the tailrotor gearbox, tailrotor blades, and the tailcone's section forward of the tailrotor gearbox. These areas and components were sectioned and forwarded to the NTSB Materials Laboratory in Washington, DC for examination.

DESCRIPTION OF ACCIDENT:  

After landing at Mobile, Alabama, a strong gust of wind blew the aircraft sideways to the left.  The left main landing gear and the nose gear traveled off the concrete runway and into the rain soaked grass.  The PIC steered the aircraft back toward the runway, but the nose wheel hooked the edge of the runway causing it to be wrenched out of position.  Trunnion bolts were sheared.  The nose gear collapsed and the propeller struck the runway.  The aircraft ended up on the runway.  The main landing gear did not collapse.  The damage to the aircraft is limited to the propeller, the engine, the engine mount, the lower engine cowling, the nose gear doors and the nose gear assembly.

DESCRIPTION OF DAMAGES: 

The aircraft was disassembled for recovery. The damage includes but may not be limited to:

All 4 blades on the propeller are bent aft. 

Both nose gear doors are damaged beyond repair. 

The bottom of the lower engine cowling is scuffed. 

There is a small hole in the upper engine cowling. 

Some part of the engine pierced the cowling slightly. 

The trunnion bolts sheared causing the gear to collapse. 

The air conditioning compressor mount is fractured. 

The alternator bracket is broken. 

The aircraft’s engine was removed and sent to Dallas Airmotive for an evaluation and returned in a “dummy build” configuration. 

LOCATION OF AIRCRAFT:   Florida Air Recovery, Jacksonville, Florida.  For inspection only: 904-553-6962

Injuries: 2 Serious, 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On September 19, 2020, about 1925 Pacific daylight time, a North American B25N, N7946C, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Stockton, California. One pilot and one passenger sustained serious injuries, and one pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that while enroute to their destination, fuel pressure for the left engine fluctuated, and the left engine briefly lost power before regaining power. The pilot stated that he was concerned that they may have had a fuel pump failure or something similar and decided to turn the cross-feed valve on. A short time later, about 5 miles from their intended destination, fuel pressure fluctuations were observed in both engines, with both engines intermittently losing and then regaining power. Due to multiple residential areas between their location and the airport, the pilot conducted a 180° turn and initiated an off-airport landing. The pilot stated that during the landing roll, he observed a ditch in front of them and was able to get the airplane airborne briefly to avoid it, however, he was not able to avoid a second large ditch. Subsequently, the airplane struck the second ditch, became airborne, and impacted the ground in a nose low attitude, and all three landing gear collapsed.

Both the left and right engines were separated from their respective attach points, and the fuselage sustained substantial damage. The wreckage was recovered to a secure location.
