LONGMONT, Colorado (CBS4)- Two people were hurt in a plane crash at the Longmont Airport on Saturday morning. Police say the private plane was in the process of taking off, and gained some altitude but later came back down.

The impact broke the landing gear causing the plane to skid off the runway.

Four people, in total, were on board, but the pilot and a woman were taken to the hospital, treated and released. Police describe the passengers as a 39-year-old man, a 44-year-old man and two women, both 37 years old.




Two people were taken to the hospital Saturday with injuries that were not life-threatening after a private plane crashed at Vance Brand Airport before it was airborne.

Longmont police Sgt. John Wederquist said the crash occurred about 8:30 a.m. There were four passengers in the plane: two men, ages 39 and 44, and two women, both 37. He said the passengers were able to walk away from the crash, with no extrication needed for emergency responders to reach them.

The cause of the plane crash remains under investigation by the airport and the National Transportation Safety Board. 

The plane traveled about 50 feet off the runway. Its engine caught fire after the crash. Responding Longmont firefighters put out the blaze. Wederquist said he was not sure what type of plane it was that crashed.

The airport’s runways were shut down for approximately 30 minutes while first responders worked at the scene.

On September 20, 2020, about 1145 central daylight time, a William Prosch Zenith 750 airplane, N210WP, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Montrose, Missouri. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, while enroute to his destination airport, the engine momentarily lost power. He immediately selected the alternate fuel pump and engine control unit (ECU), and the engine regained power. About 5 minutes later, the engine lost total power, and the pilot attempted to restart the engine. The engine restart was unsuccessful, and the pilot initiated a forced landing to a field. During the forced landing, the airplane's landing gear contacted the high vegetation, and the nose impacted terrain. The airplane nosed over and came to rest inverted. The airplane's left wing leading edge was crushed, and the rudder was bent.

Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed the main fuse block, located behind and under the instrument panel, was discolored and exhibited internal thermal damage. An automotive blade-type fuse, that connected to both primary and secondary fuel pumps and primary and back up ECUs, displayed arching signatures and had failed. According to the engine manufacturer, who responded to the accident site, the primary and secondary ECUs should have been wired directly to the main buss and should not have contained a fuse. After bypassing the failed electrical system, an engine test run was performed. The engine started and operated normally with no mechanical issues noted.

The engine manufacturer has a service bulletin that recommends an ECU wiring upgrade. The upgrade removes the ECU select switch in order to operate on a single computer only. The service bulletin had not been completed on the accident experimental airplane, nor was it required to be completed.

On July 19, 2021, about 1848 eastern daylight time, a Robinson Helicopter R44 II, N4529J, was destroyed when it impacted the Albemarle Sound near Point Harbor, North Carolina. The pilot and passenger were fatally injured. The helicopter was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

Review of surveillance video at the Mecklenburg-Brunswick Regional Airport (AVC), South Hill, Virginia, showed that the helicopter landed near the fueling station about 1710. The pilot and passenger conducted refueling activities together. A fuel receipt showed about 32 gallons of 100-low lead aviation gasoline were added. About 1722 the pilot and passenger boarded the helicopter, the engine started, a hover taxi was initiated to runway 19, and the helicopter subsequently departed southbound from runway 19 about 1726.

Review of preliminary Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) track data revealed that data was only available for the first 2 minutes of the flight. The track was consistent with a southbound path from runway 19, and then about 1.5 miles south of AVC, the flight track turned southeast and ended at 1728:52. No further radar or track data was located for the remainder of the flight. According to a witness located on the northwest side of the Albemarle Sound in Hertford, North Carolina, about 1830 she and her husband heard the sound of a low flying small helicopter. She subsequently observed a blue helicopter land in an open field that was about ½ mile from the shoreline. The witness reported that she and her husband drove their car to see if any assistance was needed; however, as they were about 50 ft from the helicopter it took off. 

She reported that the takeoff was quick, it sounded like a normal helicopter, and it flew toward the Albemarle Sound in a southeast direction where it eventually exited out of view over the water. She added that the weather conditions over the water were low overcast clouds; it was misty, and you could not see the land across the Sound, which would be visible during a “nice day.”

According to the United States Coast Guard incident commander, about 1940 they were notified about an overdue helicopter destined for Dare County Regional Airport (MQI), Manteo, North Carolina. A search was initiated over the Albemarle Sound based upon the last known position of cell phone data from pilot and passenger. The day after the accident, fragments of the helicopter were located floating on the surface of the Sound near 36.029491°, -75.991991° which was consistent with the general area of the cell phone position data. The pilot and passenger were found deceased and were recovered. Figure 1 shows the cell phone position data from 1816 to the final reported position at 1848. In addition, the figure shows the location of the off airport landing and takeoff and the general debris area.

Review of weather radar data imagery about the time of the accident over the debris area revealed areas of widespread light to heavy precipitation.

As of this publication, only fragments of the helicopter that were floating on the surface of the water have been located.
