Alabama-to-Colorado flight diverted due to unruly passenger

Wichita police arrested 33-year-old Clara Lambert, of New Market, Alabama, after they say she assaulted and battered an officer at Twin Peaks in west Wichita. Sources say was also the unruly passenger that caused a flight to be diverted to Wichita on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

WICHITA, Kansas (KWCH) - A United Airlines flight from Huntsville, Alabama, headed to Denver was diverted to Wichita on Sunday. The Wichita Airport Authority said the flight was diverted after a passenger failed to comply with the airline’s guidelines.

Zara Lowry was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 5303. She told our sister station, WAFF, located in Huntsville, that she witnessed the woman’s unruly behavior.

“Cursing around the children around the back there, she refused to wear her mask, they escorted her off the plane,” said passenger Lowry.

Officers said the passenger was escorted off the plane without incident. While she was not arrested by airport police, she was arrested by Wichita police later that evening.

Around 6 pm on Sunday, Wichita police officers were called to Twin Peaks in west Wichita after someone reported an individual acting erratic and strange. Officers arrived and made contact with a woman who then assaulted and battered one of the officers, according to police.

Clara Lambert, 33 of New Market, Alabama, was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail for assault and battery of a law enforcement officer. Sources confirm she was also the unruly passenger from earlier in the day.

After the unexpected layover in Wichita on Sunday, Lowry says she was left scrambling to fix her trip. She says something needs to be done.

“We sat on the tarmac for about an hour and 45 minutes, and finally made it to Denver, two hours after our scheduled landing. We cannot pick up our rental car because the rental agency will be closed also, so we’re kind of scrambling trying to find a way to get from that regional airport to our final destination,” said Lowry.

The FBI is now handling the investigation regarding the unruly passenger. While she was not arrested, she could still face charges and even be placed on a no-fly list.

Location: Whitehall, Michigan
Accident Number: CEN19LA308
Date and Time: September 9, 2019, 11:40 Local
Registration: N9492U
Aircraft: Cessna 150 
Aircraft Damage: Destroyed
Defining Event: Controlled flight into terr/obj (CFIT)
Injuries: 1 Fatal
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

Analysis

The pilot was conducting a personal flight in visual meteorological conditions below the minimum safe altitudes and over congested areas when the airplane impacted the center of a water tower. Witnesses observed the airplane in straight and level flight before impact and reported the engine was running at that time. Examination of the wreckage revealed no anomalies that would have prevented the pilot from maneuvering to avoid the tower.

The pilot’s toxicology results were positive for an antidepressant and a sedating antihistamine. The pilot was operating the airplane with an expired medical certificate, and his medical records indicated that he had been prescribed an antidepressant to treat anxiety/depression. This medication required the pilot to obtain a special issuance medical certificate before operating the airplane. It could not be determined if the pilot was impaired by his use of these medications or by the underlying conditions that warranted the medication.

The reasons that the pilot operated the airplane over a congested area at a low altitude and failed to avoid the water tower could not be determined based on the available evidence for this investigation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot’s flight into a water tower while operating below minimum safe altitudes for reasons that could not be determined based on the available evidence for this investigation.

Findings

Aircraft Altitude - Incorrect use/operation
Aircraft Directional control - Incorrect use/operation
Environmental issues Tower/antenna (incl guy wires) - Contributed to outcome

The water tower showed impact damage near the center of the tank that was consistent with the damage noted on the leading edge of the wings and the propeller. The damage to the airplane and the water tower was consistent with the airplane impacting the water tower perpendicular to the tank. The impact was on an approximate heading of 225°. The airplane wreckage was aligned on an approximate heading of 260°. The wreckage was mostly contained to an area that was 15 ft in diameter in the northeast corner of a fenced lot containing the water tower. Miscellaneous debris consisting of a nose and main landing gear tire and small pieces of metal, plastic, and windshield were located within a 130-ft radius of the main wreckage.

Most of the cockpit area and fuselage were consumed by postimpact fire. Flight control continuity was established from the elevators, rudder, and ailerons to the cockpit area, but the impact and fire damage prevented control continuity from being established within the cockpit. The flaps were attached to the wings in the retracted position, the flap cables were intact, and continuity was established between the flaps.

The engine was located under fire-damaged fuselage debris. The engine sustained impact and fire damage and was found fragmented. The engine crankcase was fractured, and cylinders were expelled from the crankcase. The crankshaft was fractured with a part still attached to the propeller.

The propeller had separated from the engine and came to rest under the horizontal and vertical stabilizers. The propeller was damaged from its impact with the water tower. The spinner assembly was flattened and deformed into the propeller hub, and a circular flattening was observed. The propeller mounting bolts were sheared and exhibited rotational bending. One blade was bent aft at the tip, bent midspan, and had chordwise scratching. The other blade was bent aft near the blade root and had chordwise scratching. No airframe or engine anomalies consistent with a preimpact failure or malfunction were noted.

Additional Information

Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 91.119, Minimum Safe Altitudes, states in part the following:

Except when necessary for takeoff or landing, no person may operate an aircraft below the following altitudes…Over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement, or over any open air assembly of persons, an altitude of 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2,000 feet of the aircraft.

Medical and Pathological Information

The Western Michigan University School of Medicine, Medical Examiner and Forensic Services, performed an autopsy of the pilot. His cause of death was multiple injuries. Toxicology testing performed at the Federal Aviation Administration’s Forensic Sciences Laboratory detected citalopram, N-desmethylcitalopram, and diphenhydramine in the pilot’s specimens.

Citalopram is a prescription medication used to treat various conditions, including depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. N-desmethylcitalopram is a metabolite of citalopram. Diphenhydramine is a sedating antihistamine used to treat allergic conditions and facilitate sleep.

The patient instructions for citalopram state the following:

Because psychoactive drugs may impair judgment, thinking, or motor skills, patients should be cautioned about operating hazardous machinery, including automobiles, until they are reasonably certain that [citalopram] therapy does not affect their ability to engage in such activities.

The effects of long-term use of citalopram on performance is not known. The FAA requires pilots using antidepressants, including citalopram, to have a special issuance medical certificate.

The pilot’s personal medical records for the 3 years before the accident were reviewed. The records revealed that the pilot had a longstanding history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and an anxiety disorder. He used lisinopril to treat his high blood pressure, atorvastatin to treat his high cholesterol, and escitalopram to treat anxiety/depression. These records did not mention of the extent or seriousness of the pilot’s anxiety/depression.

Major depression is associated with significant cognitive degradation, particularly in executive functioning skills. The cognitive degradation may not improve even with remission of a depressed episode, and patients with severe depression are more significantly affected than those with fewer symptoms or episodes.

On March 11, 2022, about 0230 central standard time, a Grumman AA1, N5774L, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Bay Minette, Alabama. The commercial pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

According to a family member, the pilot purchased the airplane about 6 months prior and had not flown it previously. He departed his residence in Mobile, Alabama about 0030 and traveled to Bay Minette Municipal Airport (1R8), Bay Minette, Alabama to run the airplane’s engine and taxi around the airport property.

At 1309 a US Coast Guard helicopter conducting a training flight approached runway 8 at 1R8 and observed an airplane inverted west of the taxiway leading to runway 8. The flight crew contacted Mobile Approach Control who contacted local law enforcement.

The airplane was found inverted in grass, 130 ft from the west end of the taxiway; additionally, tire marks consistent with left and right main landing gear tire braking were observed on the asphalt taxiway for 20 ft up to the edge of the taxiway.

The airplane came to rest on a heading of 082°. The top surface of the right wing was separated from the bottom surface near the wing tip. The left wing was impact damaged near the wing tip. The fuselage cabin roof was crushed near the sliding canopy frame and the rudder tip was crushed consistent with impact damage. The engine showed signs of impact damage and the engine mounts were broken. The
caster nosewheel and strut separated from the airplane and were located about 20 ft east between the airplane and taxiway.

All engine structural components, fuselage and flight control surfaces were accounted for at the accident site. Flight control continuity was confirmed from all flight control surfaces to the cockpit. Steering control continuity was confirmed.

The engine was removed from the airframe and the propeller was rotated. Compression was attained on all four cylinders. Both right and left wheel brakes were manually operated while applying brake pressure at the rudder pedals, both brakes functioned normally. Fuel was observed while disassembling the fuel line from the engine and near the wing fuel vent.

According to Federal Aviation Administration airmen records, the pilot held a commercial pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single-engine land, airplane multiengine land and instrument airplane.

The airplane was retained for further examination.

Investigation Docket - National Transportation Safety Board:


Location: Watsonville, California
Accident Number: WPR17LA204
Date and Time: September 15, 2017, 13:00 Local
Registration: N5391A
Aircraft: Cessna T210N
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Landing gear collapse
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

Analysis

The pilot reported that, during the landing, the airplane bounced and soon after he felt a "jerk and thump," and the propeller contacted the runway as the airplane slid across the runway with the nose down. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the leading edge of the right horizontal stabilizer. Examination of the runway surface revealed markings consistent with a hard landing on the nose landing gear.

The pilot reported there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation. It is likely that the pilot failed to maintain a proper landing flare, which resulted in a hard landing on the nose gear and its subsequent separation.

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 bounced landing and subsequent nose gear separation.

Findings

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

Factual Information

On September 15, 2017, about 1300 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna T210N airplane, N5391A, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Watsonville, California. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the flight and approach to landing were normal. During the landing, the airplane bounced, and he felt a “jerk and thump.” The next thing he recalled was the propeller impacting the runway surface as the airplane slid across the runway with the nose down. The pilot stated that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions of the airplane.

A postaccident examination of the airplane and accident site by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed impact gouging and tire marks on the runway surface near the approach end of runway 20. The nose landing gear separated from the airplane and was found on the runway. The airplane came to rest on the left side of the runway and exhibited impact damage to the lower fuselage
and substantial damage to the leading edge of the right horizontal stabilizer. The inspector noted that the nose landing gear separated “straight off,” and there was no evidence of mechanical anomalies. The nose landing gear linkage was in the down and locked position.

On March 12, 2022, about 1245 central standard time, a Beech A36, N9410Q, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Heavener, Oklahoma. The pilot and passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the flight was from the Bentonville Municipal Airport/Louise M Thaden Field (VBT), Bentonville, Arkansas, to the Mena Intermountain Municipal Airport (MEZ), Mena, Arkansas. After beginning his descent into to the destination airport, he noticed a dramatic drop in oil pressure to 14 psi. He began to search for alternate airports since his destination was not reachable and the terrain was mountainous. He turned the airplane toward the west to attempt to reach the Robert S. Kerr Airport (KRKR), Poteau, Oklahoma, but within 1-2 minutes the oil pressure dropped to zero and the engine seized. The pilot executed a forced landing to a field. During the landing, the airplane struck fences and livestock feeding troughs resulting in substantial damage to the wings.

Analysis

The pilot of the helicopter air ambulance flight reported that he experienced fumes in the cockpit while enroute, and shortly thereafter, received visual and aural warnings of smoke in the aft baggage compartment. The pilot initiated an emergency descent into an alternate airport, declared an emergency with air traffic control, and landed uneventfully.

Examination of the helicopter revealed that the No. 2 engine exhaust duct was disconnected and unseated, which resulted in engine exhaust entering the compartment containing the tail rotor drive shaft and substantial heat damage to the drive shaft and surrounding areas. Examination of the No. 1 engine exhaust duct revealed that its attach bolts were not tightened to the specified torque value. Additionally, examination of the operator’s other helicopter revealed that the bolts securing both of its two exhaust ducts were not tightened to the specified torque value. The maintenance history of these components was not determined, but given the available information, it is likely that they were improperly secured, which resulted in their loosening and subsequently allowed the exhaust duct to become unseated.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The improper securing of the exhaust duct bolts, which resulted in the duct becoming unseated and substantial heat damage to the tail rotor drive shaft. 

Findings

Aircraft Fasteners - Incorrect service/maintenance
Aircraft (general) - Incorrect service/maintenance
Personnel issues (general) - Maintenance personnel

Factual Information

On May 15, 2019, about 1833 central daylight time, a Sikorsky S-76D helicopter, N761AF, sustained substantial damage while in cruise flight near Morrilton, Arkansas. The pilot, 2 crewmembers, and 3 passengers were not injured. The helicopter was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 on-demand air medical flight.

The pilot reported that, 43 minutes into the flight, he experienced fumes in the cockpit. He turned the environmental control system off and immediately descended. Within seconds, he received visual and aural warnings of smoke in the aft baggage compartment. He initiated an emergency descent and declared an emergency with air traffic control and subsequently landed without further incident.

A postaccident examination of the helicopter by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the exhaust duct from the No. 2 engine was disconnected and not in its seated position. Exhaust from the No. 2 engine entered the compartment containing the tail rotor drive shaft and resulted in heat damage to drive shaft and surrounding areas. The exhaust ducts are attached using two bolts secured at 110 ft-lbs of pressure. Upon inspection of the No. 1 engine, as well as the operator’s second helicopter, all bolts were found partially disengaged and not tightened to the specified torque value.
