On April 15, 2022, about 0530 mountain standard time, a Piper PA-24-400 airplane, N8493P, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Benson, Arizona. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was as operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot he was approaching Benson Municipal Airport (E95) to land when a departing helicopter reported there were deer near the runway. The pilot said he “turned on the landing lights, dropped the gear and started my approach to runway 10.” He did not see any animal activity and proceeded to land. Upon landing the airplane began to shake and the airplane stopped on the runway. The airplane came to rest on the belly of the airplane and the main landing gear were observed partially extended. The nose gear was not visible due to the airplane position on the runway.

According to personnel who recovered the airplane, the landing gear switch was in the down position when the airplane was recovered. When lifted the landing gear remained in a partially extended position and the landing gear did not operate when power was applied to the airplane and the landing gear switch was manipulated. The landing gear subsequently lowered and locked when the emergency gear system was utilized. The airplane received substantial damage to the skins, frames, and stringers on the underbelly of the fuselage.

BUNN, North Carolina (WNCN) — A glider crashed near an airport in Franklin County Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The incident was reported around 3:30 p.m. near Crooked Creek Airport, which is about 4 miles north of Zebulon, according to a news release from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The glider involved was a Schweizer SGS 2-33A and only the person piloting the glider was onboard at the time, the news release said.

Frank Swett, the property owner where the glider crashed, said a student pilot was inside the glider but no one was injured.

The two-seat glider, with a registration number of N7784S, was built in 1969 and is registered to the North Carolina Soaring Association.

The North Carolina Soaring Association appears to be based at Crooked Creek Airport, according to the group’s website.

Swett said the foundation teaches teens and young adults how to fly gliders.

A single-engine plane crashed and flipped at the Richland Airport on Sunday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 4 p.m. at the airport operated by the Port of Benton off the Highway 240 bypass. 

Port officials at first were unable to spot the overturned plane in the brush along the runway, according to initial dispatch reports. 

The pilot reportedly called 911 for help from inside the plane.

It’s unclear if more than one person was onboard, however, there were reports that at least one person was injured. 

No information was immediately available from Richland police on Sunday. 

The airport serves regional business customers and has two paved runways, according to the port’s website.
