Aircraft: Cessna 207A 
Injuries: 6 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 135: Air taxi and commuter - Scheduled

On November 20, 2021, about 1755 Alaska standard time, a Cessna 207 airplane, N9794M sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident at the Bethel Airport, Bethel, Alaska. The pilot and five passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 scheduled passenger flight.

The purpose of the flight was to transport five passengers and cargo to Kwethluk, Alaska, which is located about 12 miles east of Bethel. The flight was operated by Yute Commuter Service as a scheduled commuter flight as flight number 700B (3). The pilot reported that shortly after departing from Bethel, he noticed that the red, ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) light on the instrument panel mounted, remote switch, had illuminated. The pilot then asked the Bethel tower operator if they were hearing an ELT signal, and the tower operator responded that no signal was being received. Moments later, the pilot began to smell what he describes as an electrical burn smell, and he elected to return to Bethel. The pilot said that about one minute later, the electrical burn smell intensified, which was followed by visible smoke in the cockpit, and he then declared an inflight emergency to the Bethel tower. The pilot then turned off the airplane’s master electrical switch, and subsequently opened his side window for ventilation and smoke removal. He said he briefly turned the master switch back on to again declare an emergency with Bethel tower, and to inform the tower operator that he was planning to land on Runway 1L.

The pilot said that after landing, during the landing roll, he realized that the nosewheel steering system and brake system were both inoperative. After the airplane rolled to a stop on the left side of Runway 1L, he ordered all the passengers to evacuate the airplane.

The pilot reported that after all the passengers had safely departed the airplane, heavy smoke filled the cockpit and passenger compartment, and he saw a candle like flame just behind the pilot and co-pilot seats, just beneath the floorboards of the airplane. Moments after all the passengers and pilot had exited the airplane, it was immediately engulfed in flames. 

A detailed NTSB wreckage examination is pending.

More than 200 planes could have the same problem that caused the Yute Commuter Service fire, investigators say.

An investigation into the Yute Commuter Service plane that caught fire on Nov. 20, 2021 has found that the fire was started by wiring in the aircraft that was installed incorrectly. The wiring was installed as part of a federally funded experimental safety program, and there could be over 200 other planes in the region that have the same problem.

The plane that caught fire was a Cessna 207. A week after the incident, two investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and one from the airplane’s manufacturer arrived in Bethel to find out what started the fire. They started collecting the charred wreckage of the plane.

“We were able to harvest some parts that we suspect were the ignition source of the fire,” said NTSB Alaska chief Clint Johnson.

They sent those parts to Washington D.C. for forensic analysis, and what they found led them to suspect that the fire started with some wires that had been added to the plane around 20 years ago.

“Unfortunately, that wire bundle was routed over the top of an aluminum fuel line. And over the years, that finally chafed through. And we were able to determine that that was, in fact, the initiation point,” Johnson said.

These wires were not installed by the airplane manufacturer Cessna, nor were they installed by YCS. They were installed as part of the Capstone Project, a project sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration in the late 90s to 2000s. The Capstone Project installed new, experimental surveillance systems in aircraft, and the Y-K Delta was its first testing ground. The Capstone Project had identified the region as one that was highly dependent on air travel, with difficult flying conditions that the experimental surveillance equipment could help with.

The FAA states that over 200 airplanes in the Y-K Delta were part of the Capstone Project and could be affected by faulty wire installation. In December 2021, the agency sent a letter to all the airlines that it believes could own these planes. In that letter, the FAA tells aircraft owners to inspect the wiring underneath the planes’ floorboards to see if the wiring touches the fuel line. It suggests to complete this inspection “at the next maintenance function, 100 hour, or annual.”

Asked why the FAA is not treating these potential flight hazards with more urgency, a spokesperson for the administration wrote in an email that catching the issue within 100 hours would be a pretty quick turnaround. He said that the administration is working to identify all the owners and operators of planes that were part of the Capstone Project that could be affected.

YCS, owner of the plane that caught fire, said that the airline has already taken all the steps necessary to keep its passengers safe.

“Once we were made aware of what it was, we inspected every one of our aircraft, and we grounded them until we did, and we completed inspection. And the ones that were affected by it, we took corrective action and then returned the aircraft to service,” said Terry Cratty, YCS Director of Operations.

Cratty said that YCS operates 12 aircraft, nine of which are Cessna 207s. He said that five of those had the same faulty wiring installation that caused the fire in November 2021, and he said that all of those are now fixed.


 


BETHEL, Alaska - The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating an emergency landing near the Bethel Airport on Saturday night.

The Yute Commuter Service aircraft caught fire before making an emergency landing, but none of the six people on board were injured, according to National Transportation Safety Board Alaska Region Chief Clint Johnson.

Johnson said that the Cessna 207 departed Bethel with five passengers and one pilot, but was unable to determine where the Cessna 207 was departing for.

“Shortly after departure from Bethel about 6 o’clock last evening that they got a smell of smoke, or started out as a smell of burning material followed by smoke in the cockpit. They turned it around, made an emergency landing at Bethel and got everybody off safely,” Johnson said. “It wasn’t destroyed, it was substantial damage.”

Johnson said that an investigation is currently underway to determine what caused the fire and subsequent emergency landing. 

Yute Commuter Service has not responded to requests for comment by the time of publication.

A single-engine plane has crashed along U.S. Highway 5, 1 mile South of the Highway 5 and University Blvd intersection of Brent, at Dowdle Drive. The aircraft is a Cessna 210K Centurion according to aircraft registration records and is owned by an LLC with an address in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida.

Brent Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene and there appears to have been no fire from the looks of photos that have been provided by our reporter. A witness on the ground said he heard the aircraft sputtering when it flew over the Sawmeal restaurant. The pilot was attempting a landing to the North on Highway 5. The injured pilot exited the aircraft under his own ability but has been transported for medical observation.

The pilot filed a flight plan and departed the Tuscaloosa airport at 8:04 a.m. this morning destined for Baker, Florida, a flight that should have taken one hour.  His flight plan shows that he reached an altitude of 6600 ft before beginning a rapid descent some 17 minutes later. The crash site is 5.2 miles from the runway of the Bibb County Airport.

The pilot is reported to have told first responders that his engine lost oil pressure and he was attempting to land on Highway 5.





BIBB COUNTY, Alabama — One person was injured after a small plane crash Sunday morning, according to Bibb County EMA Director Kirk Smith.

Smith says the crash occurred around 8 a.m. Sunday when the plane made an emergency landing on Highway 5.

The pilot of the plane was taken to DCH Hospital with minor injures.

Officials are on the scene waiting for the National Transportation Safety Board to arrive.

ENGLISHTOWN, New Jersey — Flames engulfed a small plane in New Jersey on Sunday when the student pilot crashed at Old Bridge Airport, police said.

Emergency responders rushed to the smoking Cessna 172N Skyhawk II around 4:45 p.m., officials said. 

The student pilot, who was the only person on the plane, escaped with minor injuries.

Pilot Robert Carsey Jr., who’d planned to land elsewhere, spotted what happened to the Cessna and landed to help, he told PIX11 News.

“By the time I parked it and got in my car with an extinguisher, it was clear that the airplane was a total loss,” he said.


A student pilot on a solo flight escaped serious injury Sunday afternoon when his plane caught fire after veering off the runway while landing at Old Bridge Airport, police said.

The student pilot, who is 18, had just touched down at about 4:30 p.m., when the plane left the runway, Old Bridge Police Capt. Joseph Mandola said. He did not publicize the pilot’s name.

“He wasn’t ejected from the plane. He got out of the plane under his own power,” said Mandola. “He’s lucky because he got out of the plane and it was completely engulfed.”

The young aviator suffered bumps and scratches, but was not seriously hurt, said Mandola, adding that he was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for observation.

The Cessna Skyhawk was destroyed by the fire, Mandola said. The New Jersey State Police was notified of the crash, and Old Bridge Police detectives took photos of the wreckage to provide to the Federal Aviation Administration, Mandola said.

Old Bridge Airport is a privately owned airstrip on Pension Road in the southern corner of the Middlesex County township, adjacent to the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park motorsports complex.

Mandola said the student was being coached by an instructor on the ground with airport’s one flight school. The one school listed for the airport is Old Bridge Flight School. The school did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday.

The school’s home page includes a photo of a young child in an old-fashioned leather flight helmet and goggles, with the motto, “Live the dream: Learn to fly.”


The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed Sunday that a small plane crashed while attempting to land during the afternoon in Englishtown, New Jersey.

The incident happened at the Old Bridge Airport in Middlesex County. The Federal Aviation Administration said a Cessna 172N Skyhawk II crashed while trying to land here at around 4:45pm.

Only the pilot was on board, and authorities have not released any information about whether that pilot suffered any injuries.

CBS2’s Nick Caloway reported seeing some police and fire personnel entering the airport, as they worked to sort out why the plane crashed.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate, and more should be known on Monday.

An investigation is underway after a small plane crash in the Northwest suburbs.  

A Cessna 172P Skyhawk ended up nose down in the grass at Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling. 

It happened around 11 a.m. Sunday.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane made a hard landing before veering off the runway.  

The pilot was the only person on board.  

There are no reports of any injuries. 

The Chicago Executive Airport released the following statement:

A single-engine Cessna 172 went into the infield after experiencing a hard landing Sunday at Chicago Executive Airport. No injuries were reported.

The incident occurred at approximately 11 a.m. and caused minimal damage to airport equipment. The airplane was removed and the airfield was reopened at 12:15 p.m., according to CEA Executive Director Jeffrey Miller.

CEA thanks the fire departments from the City of Prospect Heights and the Village of Wheeling for their expeditious response.




Firefighters and paramedics from Prospect Heights and Wheeling responded about 11:02 a.m. Sunday, November 21, 2021 to a report of an aircraft in distress at Chicago Executive Airport in Prospect Heights and Wheeling.

An aircraft landed on Runway 34 and apparently experienced a landing gear failure and ran off the runway on the north end of the airport near Hintz Road.

The pilot did not initially report any injuries.

Prospect Heights Battalion Chief Andrew Plonski said the Cessna 172P Skyhawk had a small fuel leak and the pilot was the only person onboard.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were notified of the incident.

Everything relating to the incident must go through a National Transportation Safety Board investigation, Plonski said. The plane was towed away by a local towing company.

Some fire equipment was returning by about 11:20 a.m.

Two people were hospitalized after a helicopter crashed during a flight training exercise at Lancaster Airport late Saturday morning, according Airport Director Ed Foster.

The Kitz Kopters Bell 47G-2 crashed in a field near the 200 block of East Millport Road, near an air traffic control tower at the airport, around 11:25 a.m., Foster said. The crash occurred on airport property.

The helicopter's owner and a flight instructor were undergoing a training exercise when unknown issue occurred mid-flight. The flight instructor took control of the rotorcraft and attempted to land it, coming down near one of the airport's two runways.

Both occupants appeared to be uninjured in the crash, but were taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure, Foster said.

One of the airport's two runways was closed as the Federal Aviation Administration investigated the scene. The helicopter was later removed by a tow truck.

Though the runway was closed, the crash did not disrupt airport activity, Foster said.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash. Foster said he was unsure if another organization, such as the National Transportation Safety Board, would also become involved.

The crash is the second aircraft incident at the airport Foster could recall. A small four-seat airplane crashed last year after the pilot took off in the wrong direction, significantly damaging their aircraft but avoiding serious injury.

On November 19, 2021, at 1204 eastern standard time, a Piper PA-28R-200, N2305T, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport (GFL), Glens Falls, New York. The pilot was not injured, and the passenger sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, the preflight inspection, engine start, engine run-up and takeoff were normal. After liftoff, the pilot retracted the landing gear, and during the initial climb, about 500 ft above the ground, the engine power “rolled back” but the propeller continued to windmill. The pilot lowered the nose and began a gradual turn back toward the runway. The airplane landed on the grass and struck the airport’s perimeter fence, resulting in substantial damage to the fuselage and wings.

The airplane and engine were recovered for further examination.

QUEENSBURY — A single-engine airplane crashed shortly after taking flight at Warren County airport on Friday morning.

Airport staff reported that the accident involved two men.

The pilot was uninjured.

The passenger was transported to Glens Falls Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries, according to a news release from Warren County.

South Queensbury Fire Chief John Harrington said that the passenger was a 74-year-old man who appeared to have minor head injuries. He was transported by Bay Ridge EMS.

The preliminary investigation into the 11:41 a.m. crash shows that the aircraft, a 1971 Piper, took off from Runway 30 at the airport heading west.

The airplane lost power shortly after takeoff, at which point the pilot turned around in an attempt to return to the airport, according to the news release.

The pilot was trying to land on Runway 19 when the plane crashed at the north gate of the airport.

The airport was closed as of 12:45 p.m. to allow for the removal of the aircraft.

The airplane is registered to Warren County Flying Club.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office and state police responded to the scene. The Federal Aviation Administration was also notified.

Harrington said Bay Ridge EMS, Fort Edward EMS and the South Queensbury, Bay Ridge, Kingsbury and West Glens Falls fire departments all responded to the scene. The state Department of Environmental Conservation was also notified, according to Harrington.
