On October 22, 2021, at 1750 eastern daylight time, an Embraer EMB-500, N925DR was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Orlando, Florida. The airline transport pilot and three passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, the airplane completed a stable RNAV/GPS 36L approach to a “smooth” landing at Orlando International Airport (MCO). He had lowered a wing and was using the rudder to compensate for a crosswind, and after touchdown, “only the right brake activated,” and the nose went to the right. He then released the brakes, “steered back toward centerline” but the airplane “came aggressively” back to its left. The pilot decided to complete the rollout under control in the grass, rather than risk over-controlling the airplane to remain on the runway because he feared the airplane would roll inverted.

The airplane continued off the left side of the runway, struck a sign, dragged and substantially damaged the right wing, before it came to rest upright facing perpendicular to the landing runway.

The pilot reported that he had 26,000 total hours of flight experience, of which 80 hours were in the accident airplane make and model.

Examination of the airplane’s maintenance records revealed its most recent inspection within its continuous airworthiness program was completed October 17, 2021, at 1,767.3 total aircraft hours.

The airplane’s combination cockpit voice recorder/flight data recorder and components and modules of the braking system were retained for further examination.

The wind reported at the time of the accident was from 090° at 12 knots, gusting to 16 knots.

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

On October 23, 2021, about 1825 Alaska daylight time, a Gregg Origer PA-18 Replica airplane, N368G sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident about 2 miles south of Willow, Alaska. The pilot was fatally injured, and the passenger sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot had departed from Anderson Lake Airport (0AK1), Wasilla, Alaska and was returning to Minuteman Strip Airport (AK68), Willow, Alaska when the accident occurred. A witness located about .30 nautical miles to the southeast observed the airplane fly over his location and reported that the engine appeared to be at a low power setting, as it was fairly quiet, which he thought was unusual.
Subsequently, the airplane made a turn and disappeared from view. He then heard an increase in engine power followed by the sound of an impact. He and another Good Samaritan responded to the scene to render aid. He stated that at no point did he hear any unusual sounds from the airplane and the engine appeared to be operating normally.

The airplane impacted in a near vertical attitude at an elevation of about 274 ft. All the airplane’s major components were located at the main accident site.

A detailed wreckage examination is pending.

WILLOW, Alaska - A small plane crash at a private air strip in Willow sent two people on board to the hospital on Saturday.

The crash, according to Matanuska-Susitna Borough Department of Emergency Services Director Ken Barkley, happened just after 6 p.m. Saturday at a private air strip at the end of Winter Park Road.

Troopers responded with emergency service personnel to the scene of the Javron PA-18 Replica aircraft near mile 68 of the Parks Highway, according to an online dispatch report. It sustained significant damage in the crash, troopers wrote.

No fire was caused as a result of the crash and Mat-Su Borough Emergency Services were able to transport both crash victims to separate hospitals for care.

A relative near the scene told Alaska’s News Source his parents were the only people on the plane, flown by his father. The pilot took the brunt of the injuries, the relative said, and was taken to Providence Alaska Medical Center. His mother went to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center.

Troopers confirmed that the passenger is currently receiving care in the Mat-Su. The pilot is in critical condition in Anchorage.

National Transportation Safety Board Chief for the Alaska Region Clint Johnson said on Sunday that an NTSB investigation has begun. Johnson said the Javron PA-18 Replica that crashed was an experimental kit built. Johnson reported that Federal Aviation Administration personnel were on scene in Willow to document the wreckage site and relocate the aircraft as part of the investigation.

“This is what they refer to as a Cub replica, so it is a kit-built airplane,” Johnson said. “We don’t know a lot beyond that at this point.”

Johnson said that Senior Aviation Accident Investigator Brice Banning would be the investigator in charge for the follow up investigation as to what caused the experimental aircraft to crash with two people inside.
