On March 29, 2022, at 1500 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-28, N5067W, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Melbourne, Florida. The pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 positioning flight.

According to the pilot, he was hired to perform a prebuy inspection of the airplane, then fly it to New Jersey to the new owner. He and his girlfriend flew down in his airplane a few days before the accident flight and he performed a prebuy inspection. He noted that the cylinders were previously changed and was told by the seller that the break-in run was not completed. The pilot further stated he knew that it was going to be a risky flight home but decided to proceed with it anyway. On the day of the accident, he took off and circled the airport several times and climbed to 7,000 ft mean sea level. He stated everything looked and ran well so he decided to proceed to New Jersey. About 20 miles northwest of Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB), Melbourne, Florida, he noticed the engine was running rough and the oil pressure was low. He notified air traffic control and turned back to MLB to land. The roughness increased and the engine started vibrating, so he reduced the power to 1,500 rpm. The engine continued to run rough so he shut the engine down and thought he could glide to the runway at MLB. Once he realized he would not make the runway, he set up to land in a parking lot. He does not remember much after; however, he thought he may have hit a telephone pole.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector, the airplane struck telephone wires and came to rest inverted in a parking lot. Both wings sustained substantial damage.

The wreckage has been retained for further examination.

Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Hard landing 
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Instructional

Analysis

The director of aviation safety at the flight school reported that the airplane received substantial damage to the fuselage after a hard landing. Four days before finding the damage, the airplane had been used by the accident pilot for a flight toward his commercial training. After completing the training flight, no discrepancies were declared.

Data from the airplane's flight data management unit showed that the airplane landed flat on the runway, which resulted in subsequent bounces.

The director of aviation safety of the flight school reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The automated weather observation system at the accident airport reported that, about the time of the accident, the wind was from 280° at 3 knots. The pilot landed on runway 25R.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's improper landing flare, which resulted in a hard, bounced landing.

Findings

Aircraft Landing flare - Not attained/maintained
Personnel issues Aircraft control - Pilot

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On March 26, 2022, about 0750 Pacific daylight time, a Downer Bellanca 14-19-2, N7658B, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Prosser, Washington. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the reason for the flight was to operate the engine at high power, to break-in the piston rings after a new engine cylinder had been installed. He reported performing a thorough preflight, that included a check of the pitch trim system, with no anomalies noted.

Shortly after departure, and before he had reached the intended maneuvering area, he felt a mild vibration. He was initially not concerned, because it felt like prior instances when he had encountered a fouled spark plug or bad spark plug lead. He adjusted engine power and determined that the vibrations were only present at higher power settings. He also adjusted the pitch trim but did not feel any vibration in the trim handle.

He began to maneuver the airplane in a shallow descending turn, when the vibrations came back, but now more pronounced, such that he could feel them through the flight control system. A few sends later he heard a large bang emanating from the tail, followed by violent shuddering and shaking and rapid forward and aft control yoke deflections.

He reduced engine power, and increased back pressure on the control yoke to slow the airplane down, and when he looked back, he could see the elevator and trim tab rapidly oscillating. 

With limited pitch control, he began to maneuver the airplane for a forced landing by modulating engine power to a speed that minimized the vibrations. He judged the descent rate and airspeed to be too high to land, and continued to maneuver the airplane, describing the experience as closer to guiding a falling object rather than flying. He extended the landing gear, and prepared the airplane for a forced landing, and about 50 to 100 ft agl, decided that he was still descending too fast to land. He decided to apply engine power to control pitch attitude, and the airplane appeared to respond, such that the airplane began to flare over a field, although still at a very high speed. The main landing gear touched the ground, and he applied full aft pressure to the control yoke, and the airplane skipped once, touched down again, and eventually came to rest after a ground roll of what he estimated to be about 1,500 ft.

Examination of the airplane revealed that the right horizontal stabilizer had departed, and the left horizontal stabilizer was bent about 10° in the vertical plane. Additionally, although the left elevator remained attached to the horizontal stabilizer by its hinges, its control tube had separated from the center bellcrank. The trim tab remained attached to the left elevator, but its control torque rod had separated within the support tube assembly, such that movement of the trim pushrod did not result in movement of the trim surface.
