Date and Time: April 13, 2022, 08:32 Local

Aircraft: Cessna 208B
Injuries: 1 Fatal
Flight Conducted Under: Part 135: Air taxi & commuter - Non-scheduled

On April 13, 2022, about 0832 mountain daylight time, a Cessna 208B Grand Caravan, N928JP, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Heyburn, Idaho. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulation Part 135 cargo flight. According to the operator, the pilot was transporting cargo on an instrument flight rules flight from the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), Salt Lake City, Utah, to the Burley Municipal Airport (BYI), Burley, Idaho.

A review of air traffic control (ATC) communication with the pilot revealed the approach controller issued the pilot the current altimeter setting and verified that the pilot had the current weather and notices to airmen reports for BYI. Subsequently, the controller cleared the pilot for the RNAV runway 20 approach via the MALTT transition at BYI. The pilot reported passing the initial approach fix, and about 4 minutes later reported a missed approach. The controller then instructed the pilot to execute the published missed approached and to report established [in the hold] at IREME, and to expect the same approach.

After the pilot report established at IREME, the controller cleared the pilot for the approach. About 1 minute later, the controller asked the pilot if she had crossed the initial approach fix. The pilot initially replied negative, then subsequently replied that she had crossed the fix. The controller then approved a change to BYI advisory frequency.

Video footage recovered from a security camera located on a processing plant revealed a view of the rooftop of the processing plant, along with a smokestack supported by steel framework on the roof. Snow was observed falling. About 0832:25, the airplane came into view in a wings-level, nose-high descent. The airplane subsequently struck the smokestack and fell to the rooftop.

According to a witness, located about one quarter mile away, he first heard, then observed the airplane descend out of the clouds then immediately went into a steam cloud, which was produced from a set of six smokestacks located on the same roof. The witness heard the engine increase in sound and saw the nose lift shortly before the airplane struck the smokestack and descend to the rooftop.

The airplane came to rest on its right side. Both wings, the propeller assembly, belly pod, and the nose wheel separated from the fuselage. All major components of the airplane remained on the rooftop. First responders recovered about 40 gallons of jet fuel which had spilled from both wings.

A special automated weather report for BYI about the time of the accident reported 1 mile visibility in light snow and mist, broken layer at 2,300 ft above ground level (agl), overcast at 2,800 ft agl, temperature -3°C, dew point temperature -5°C, barometric pressure 29.96 inches of mercury. An Airmen’s Meteorological Information (AIRMET) advisory was active for icing and mountain obscurations for areas that included BYI.

The airplane was recovered to a secure facility for further examination.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On April 8, 2022, about 1530 Pacific standard time, an experimental amateur-built Rans S4 Coyote 1, N3156D, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Chula Vista, California. The pilot was the sole occupant and was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot stated that he completed a preflight inspection of the airplane with his mechanic and then started the airplane and taxied to runway 27. He aligned the airplane with the runway centerline and then gradually advanced the throttle for takeoff. When the airplane was about 300 ft into the takeoff roll the pilot applied back pressure to the flight stick and the airplane started to transition into a climb. However, the airplane immediately began a right roll when it was only a few feet above the ground. The pilot rapidly applied left flight stick, but the airplane continued to roll to the right. He then pushed the flight stick forward and applied left rudder to remain in ground effect and increase his airspeed, which slowed the right roll.

The airplane was to the right of the right runway edge at an altitude of about 8 ft agl as it approached the departure end of the runway when the pilot decided he had insufficient control of the airplane to continue the flight safely. At this point he reduced the engine power to idle and placed the airplane in a left crab, which allowed him to maintain a level attitude. As he pulled back on the flight stick to begin a landing flare he felt the right wing drop again. The airplane touched down on the right main landing gear, which immediately collapsed and the right wing impacted the ground.

Postaccident photographs from the Federal Aviation Administration showed substantial damage to the right wing.

The pilot stated that the airplane suffered a hard landing about 9 months prior, which resulted in damage to the right wing and right main landing gear. This was the pilot’s first flight in the accident airplane after it was repaired. Further inspection of the wreckage revealed that the right-wing strut was not bolted to its attachment clevis at the right wing.

On April 10, 2022, about 0703 mountain standard time, an Adams Balloons LLC A55S, N866RA, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Safford, Arizona. The commercial pilot was not injured, and the two passengers sustained minor injuries. The balloon was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that during climb to the north, the sound and power produced by the burners was abnormal. She remarked that the burners seemed to produce low pressure and descended to the southeast. During descent, she attempted to troubleshoot the low-pressure anomaly by alternating propane tanks and elected to use the left rear and forward right propane tanks which seemed to provide better burner pressure. She decided to land as soon as possible and was able to maintain a level flight path about 1,100 ft above ground level, but the burner pressure seemingly decreased.

During approach to her desired landing site, she spotted powerlines that intersected the approach path and applied a full burn. The balloon climbed over the wires, and she chose to rapidly descend, because she had selected a parking lot that was less than a mile to the east as her target landing site.

The parking lot bordered two roads and was less than one half mile from a powerline substation. The parking lot contained power line wires on all four sides. She recalled that during descent into the parking lot, the speed of the balloon increased, and they bypassed the intended landing site. The basket came to a stop after impacting the ground, and after the envelope collided with powerline wires. While on the ground, she ensured that the fuel tanks and the pilot lights were off. The pilot and passengers remained in the basket until first responders arrived.

On April 10, 2022, about 1108 eastern daylight time, an experimental, amateur-built Lancair IVP, N7KJ, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Leicester, Massachusetts. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, about 40 minutes after departure, during a cross-country flight at 16,500 ft mean sea level, there was a “sudden explosion and the right window was gone.” He performed an emergency descent and landed uneventfully.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed that the right front window and portions of the roof fractured and separated from the fuselage, resulting in substantial damage (see Figure 1.)

The airplane was retained for further examination; the window was not recovered.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On April 7, 2022, about 1310 eastern daylight time, an experimental, amateur-built Arion Lightning LS1, N6688S, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Mountain City, Tennessee. The commercial pilot sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot stated that prior to flight, the airplane was completely fueled, and he performed a preflight inspection with no anomalies noted. The airplane departed on runway 24 at Johnson County Airport (6A4), Mountain City, Tennessee. Runway 24 was 4,498 ft long and consisted of asphalt. The engine was at full power and the pilot rotated the airplane at 53 knots, but the airplane experienced a partial loss of engine power several seconds later at 70 knots. The pilot was not sure that he could land on the remaining runway and immediately turned the right fuel tank to on and the engine rpm increased significantly.

Within seconds, the engine again lost almost total power and he elected to keep the airplane on the runway heading to clear several obstacles at the end of the runway. The pilot attempted a forced landing in a field but had to pull-up to clear a fence. The airplane subsequently landed hard in the field and collided with a creek bed, resulting in substantial damage to the forward fuselage.

The wreckage was retained for further examination.

Investigators responded to the scene of a single-engine plane crash that happened just before 1:30 p.m. near the Johnson County Airport outside Mountain City, TN, on Thursday afternoon.

Neva volunteer firefighters, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, and Johnson County EMS first responders rushed to the scene, finding the plane and its pilot, Ted Richardson, 75, of Butler, TN, crashed into a nearby creek.

According to Johnson County Airport Manager Dave Garris, Richardson was taking off in his Arion Lightning LS-1 plane headed to an event in Virginia when he seemed to have some engine problem.

“We have never expected this,” said Gerris, “Ted is an experienced pilot. Everything seemed to be working until the plane started struggling and came down hitting the ground before jumping over a road and crashing into the creek when it broke apart.”
The crash was approximately 1,500 feet from the runway,” Garris said.

Following the crash, Richardson was life-flighted to a hospital in Johnson City with some injuries.






JOHNSON COUNTY, Tennessee  (WJHL) – A small plane ended up in a Johnson County creek Thursday after failing to gain altitude.

According to Johnson County Airport Manager Dave Garris, a local pilot who was heading to West Virginia crashed at the end of the airport runway during takeoff. The plane was unable to gain proper altitude.

Garris said the plane did clear the airport’s border fence before skidding across Crackers Neck Road. Afterward, the plane landed in a nearby creek.

The pilot was alert following the crash and told officials he was experiencing lower back pain. Garris told News Channel 11 around 4 p.m. that he had learned the pilot was flown to a hospital for treatment.

Garris told News Channel 11 that the plane was not leaking fuel. The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to arrive at the crash site Friday morning.
