Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On December 4, 2022, about 2056 central standard time (CST), a Cessna 210-5 airplane, N8149Z, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Cleburne, Texas. The certificated instrument flight instructor and the airline transport pilot were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The crew had departed Fairmont Municipal Airport, Fairmont, West Virginia, about 1116 eastern standard time (EST) enroute to a planned final destination of Granbury Regional Airport (GDJ), Granbury, Texas. A review of archived automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) data revealed that the airplane landed at Upshur County Municipal Airport, Buckhannon, West Virginia, about 1133 EST. It departed about 1209 and returned to the airport about 1215. Fueling records indicate that 41.49 gallons of fuel was purchased at 1142 and an additional 16.96 gallons was purchased at 1220. About 1233, it departed again and flew to the Covington Municipal Airport, Covington, Tennessee, and landed about 1527 CST. About 1615 CST, the airplane departed and landed at Cleburne Regional Airport (CPT), Cleburne, Texas, about 2022 CST. While at CPT, the crew communicated with the owner of the airplane and informed him that they had stopped for additional fuel to ensure they would have enough in the event of a missed approach at GDJ. A fuel purchase receipt showed that the crew purchased 20 gallons of 100LL aviation fuel.

An instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was filed for a flight from CPT to GDJ. The crew subsequently contacted air traffic control to receive their IFR clearance, which consisted of an assigned heading of 090 and a climb to 3,000 ft above mean sea level (msl). They subsequently departed from CPT about 2055. No further communications from the crew were received by air traffic control.

After departure from runway 15, the airplane climbed to an altitude of about 1,775 ft msl and began a right turn. After turning about 90°, a rapid descent began as the airplane continued the right turn. The last ADS-B data point was recorded when the airplane was about 1,275 ft msl (505 ft above ground level).

Surveillance video, from about ¾ mile northeast of the accident location, captured audio of the airplane’s departure and both audio and video of the impact. During the video, no abnormal engine sounds were observed. A witness, located about 300 yards southeast of the accident location stated that the airplane appeared to be at a “low altitude, right-hand bank at a high rate of speed” just before the impact. He stated that the engine sounded as if it was operating at a high power setting.

The airplane impacted a vacant construction site on a 340° ground track in a right-wing low orientation. The initial point of impact was identified by remnants of the right navigation light lens and right wingtip. The airplane continued on the same track and the main wreckage was located about 80 ft from the initial impact point with the total debris field extending about 240 ft. During impact, the airplane exploded and was mostly consumed by fire.

A post-accident examination confirmed flight control continuity from the cockpit to the rudder, elevator and the left aileron through tension separation of the control cables. The right aileron control continuity was partially established with a small section of the direct cable not observed at the time of the examination; the breaks observed were consistent with tension overload and the right aileron cables remained attached to the bellcrank and control chain. The engine was examined with a borescope, with no pre-impact anomalies noted. The wing spar forward and aft attach points were visually inspected with no evidence of fatigue or corrosion present. The vacuum pump was recovered and examined with no preimpact anomalies noted.

Jeanette Sue (Stone) Lyons
January 20, 1992 - December 4, 2022

Jeanette Sue (Stone) Lyons, known to her family as Peanut, was born on January 20, 1992 in Elizathton, Tennessee. She was the adored wife of William Stewart Lyons IV and lead a life filled with adventure, laughter, and a passion for flying. 

She grew up in the hills of West Virginia in the small town of Pennsboro. She loved riding her dirt bike at the family farm, she earned a brown belt in Karate at a young age, she joined Civil Air Patrol in her teen years and was an active member for many years, she was an Honor Society student in both Middle and High School, she was also a member of the High School Peer Mediation program, she was a cheerleader from a young age through High School, she was also a member of the High School Field and Track Team, and she finished her High School years as a Ritchie County Class of 2010 Salutatorian. 

Jeanette went on to college where she spent a summer interning in Europe and then a backpack trip through Europe with her best friend Taylor Garrison. In December of 2016 Jeanette graduated with a BS in Animal Science from West Virginia University, Morgantown West Virginia.  After leaving University, Jeanette and her devoted canine Nakita traveled around the United States looking for more adventure.  She hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail; she started out at the beginning in Georgia and came off the trail in Richmond, Virginia. On the trail she earned the nickname Hula Bear due to the hula-hoop she took with her to hula-hoop on the mountain tops.  Nikita hiked along with her and earned the name Kita-Bear on the trail due to her warm coat keeping the hikers warm at night when they would meet up at a shelter.  Kita would continue to travel across the United States with Jeanette and made friends as easily as Jeanette did.  Jeanette eventually landed in the town of Terlinqua, Texas where she met Alex and Marty Whitmore.  Alex and Marty took Jeanette under their wing and Alex started training Jeanette to fly taildragger planes.  This quickly became Jeanettes passion, and she spent several months each year training in Terlinqua with Alex. Jeanette and Kita-Bear continued to travel around the US as Jeanette took jobs to get more experience and flight time.  When Jeanette was to the point in her career to begin instructing, she moved to Dallas Texas to take her first job as a pilot instructor. This would be when her soul mate, William Stewart Lyons IV, met and wooed her, convincing her to begin putting down roots.  Jeanette quickly made friends in the area and joined the Fort Worth 99s, an organization of women pilots who work to support one another and raise funds to help young women learn to fly.  Jeanette also earned a spot flying the BT-13 for the National WASP WWII Museum in Sweetwater, TX and was recently presented with the rank of Colonel in the Commerative Air Force. She loved being able to be a part of this wonderful history of women in aviation.  In 2020, Jeanette and Will began a flight school, Aviate at the Lake in Granbury, Texas, where they both taught students. In 2021, Jeanette took a position as a SIC for Airshare, flying the Phenom300. This year Jeanette was promoted to PIC for Airshare and was absolutely thrilled to be living her dream. Her accomplishments:  Occupation: PIC Commercial Pilot for Airshare; Certificate: Airline Transport Pilot; Ratings: Airline Transport Pilot-Airplane Multiengine Land, Commercial; Privileges: Airplane Single Engine Land, Airplane Single Engine Sea; Type of Ratings: A/EMB-500, A/EMB-505. 

On September 6, 2022, Jeanette and Will gathered their friends and family together in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado to celebrate and witness the joining of two families as they became man and wife.  The last several months of their lives were filled with the joy of seeing their knowing smiles as they called one another ‘my wife’ and ‘my husband’.  A love so pure and real that it spilled over into every room they walked into. 

On December 4, 2022, as Jeanette and her husband Will traveled home from spending time with Jeanette’s family in West Virginia, they lost their lives along with their beloved Kita-Bear in an aviation accident in Cleburne, Texas.  The loss of these beautiful souls has left their family and their many friends across this world heartbroken.  If you had the fortune to know them, remember their laughs, remember Jeanettes love of life and adventure, remember Wills love of sports and sauces, remember Kita-Bears unlimited ability to give cuddles.  But most importantly, remember their love for each other and all of us.

William "Will" S. Lyons (IV)
March 16, 1987 - December 4, 2022

Will Lyons (William S. Lyons IV) was the first son of William S. Lyons III and Kathleen Lyons, born into the world on March 16th, 1987. For most of his early life, he was known simply as “Billy” – that little blonde kid who was just a delight to be with, who was loving and kind to his younger sibling, Aurora, and who became a faithful friend to everyone he knew, regardless of how others felt. From the very first days of life, it was really evident from his big smile, bright eyes, and sweet, loving disposition that something special had arrived on earth.

It also very quickly became clear that he absolutely loved playing sports and playing games with his family and many friends. He joined T-ball and flag football teams starting at his earliest opportunity and began skiing with his family at only 4 years of age. He was a naturally-gifted athlete and was intensely competitive, becoming very good at the sports he played without much coaching or instruction. For instance, he joined the tennis program at Douglas County High and made the varsity team – yet had never even played tennis before!

That love of sports and games developed into a strong passion for all athletics – but particularly baseball and snowboarding, though he loved football as well. Throughout all levels in school, he played these sports and even carried baseball and snowboarding into his adult life. He had achieved at least college-level skill & abilities in baseball and was truly an outstanding snowboarder with fantastic abilities in the steep mountain backcountry as well as on the jumps and rails of the board park. He also became quite good later in life at disk golf and would make it a point to bring his disk set wherever he went and play courses in all those locations.

Driven by the early desire for an athletics-related career, Will studied in the field of sports medicine at the University of Colorado at Boulder where he graduated with a BS degree in Integrative Physiology in 2010. His love of baseball then led him to try a career in umpiring for Major League Baseball. For two years, he attended the MLB umpiring school in Vero Beach Florida and umpired college-level baseball leagues during the summers as part of that training. He also continued to umpire – and coach – in high school and youth league games.

Will was also quite interested in airplanes and was inspired by building and flying model airplanes as a child with his father. He was fascinated, too, by watching the real airplanes at the local small airport when his grandfather would fly out to visit with his own plane. Yet we did not quite grasp Will’s burgeoning interest in this area.

Upon reaching young adulthood, his grandfather took him up in that plane and let him fly it. Will loved this and took every opportunity to do so when we visited his grandfather. Then, when it later became clear that neither MLB umpiring or physical therapy were going to be his career direction, it occurred to Will that being a professional pilot could be instead. Soon he came to realize that this was really his life’s calling, in fact.

After discussing training options with his parents, Will moved to Washington DC both to aid his aging grandfather and learn to fly using his grandfather’s plane. Will was a kind, gentle, and caring young man who, with his physical therapy background, could provide excellent live-in care to his grandfather. While doing so, Will earned his private pilot’s license and built experience hours by flying his grandfather to all his favorite locations across the country and learning from his grandfather’s extensive 4000+ hour flying knowledge base.

Eventually, his grandfather did require a full-time care facility and Will returned home to begin taking higher levels of flight training with the ATP school in Centennial, Colorado (south suburb of Denver). Through this, Will earned additional pilot ratings of instrument, commercial, multi-engine, flight instructor, and instrument flight instructor. In 2019, he moved to Grapevine Texas (Dallas area) to take an instructor job at the American Flyers flight training school and began amassing hours toward becoming an airline transport pilot.

It was at this job where Will made a great, life-changing step forward. Flight instructor duties took him to many other airports, and at one of those, he met another pilot and extraordinary woman.., Jeanette Stone. Jeanette was an adventurous person who had become a pilot learning to fly tail-dragger aircraft and who was similarly building hours to become an airline transport pilot. Will truly admired her skill, courage, sense of adventure, and her beauty – inside and out. He became her instructor for an instrument rating, but they quickly started building a much greater relationship bond. She came to love his caring compassion for people, and his goofy sense of humor along with his athleticism and desire to both try new things and travel to various places (as afforded by their airplanes). Strong love for all family was also a dominant trait and he connected very well with children – entertaining them and teaching them. So, it was clear he would make a good father, too.

The two became engaged and together they sensed a business opportunity to start their own flight training school at the regional airport near his father’s vacation lakehouse in Granbury, Texas. At this small but bustling tourism-oriented historical town 45 miles southwest of Fort Worth, they purchased the Hyde Flight school and expanded it to become a popular fight training business known as “AV8 at the Lake”. Through it, they provided both basic and higher-level flight training to many of the nearby residents and they became well-known and respected in the community. Jeanette, meanwhile, also became a commercial pilot for Airshare – a private aircraft chartering company – and began to accumulate high quality flight experience in jets by flying many high- profile clients, such as Patrick Mahomes, to widespread domestic and international locations. She earned captain status with that company in the fall of 2022 and was well on her way to realizing her dream and opening the door for Will and her to begin building their future.

Will married Jeanette high in the mountains of Estes Park, Colorado on a beautiful sunny day, Sept 6th, 2022, with many relatives and friends present. Having sold the Texas flight school in the summer, the couple began preparing for a move to Colorado in the later fall to start their forever life together – which in addition to aviation, would include children and frequent snowboarding trips. Will had begun to apply for commercial jet freight pilot jobs and the two began looking for a home in the Denver area, near his father and mother.

Over Thanksgiving in 2022, Will and Jeanette flew the private plane of a close friend up to visit Jeanette’s family in West Virginia. Tragically on the return flight, following a brief routine fuel stop only 20 miles from their home airport, their plane crashed in an accident shortly after takeoff which claimed the lives of them both, along with their beloved dog and their ultra-bright futures together.

Will had found the love of his life along with the career that gave him so much happiness. He smiled a lot anyway, but of late, that smile – along with that special twinkle in his eye – had become a permanent fixture. He loved Jeanette immensely, and in the truest, most admirable ways. She, too, returned that the same to love him – and he was never happier.

Will was preceded in death recently by his paternal grandfather, William Lyons II MD, and Great Aunt, Eileen Serice, maternal grandmother Harriet and grandfather Jerry. He is survived by his mother and father, Kathleen & William Lyons III and by his sister, Aurora; his paternal uncle, Jon, and 1st cousins Janet, Mary, Mark, and Christina C.; his maternal uncle Eric, aunt Jackie, and 1st cousins Claire, Thomas, and Christina Z. And, of course all of his new family on Jeanette’s side.

Additionally, Will, and Jeanette, leave a very large following of close friends and co-workers who loved them both as well. Details of the funeral ceremony and final resting will be forthcoming.

We all knew and felt the great love and care he had for his family and friends. And we all now feel the great loss. Will, and Jeanette, will be sorely missed.

Fly now in peace my son, Will, with your beloved wife Jeanette, and faithful dog Kita forever at your side.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On December 3, 2022, at 1938 eastern standard time, a Piper PA-28-151, N4676F, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Venice, Florida. The private pilot and two passengers were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

Preliminary Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) data revealed that the airplane departed St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE), St. Petersburg, Florida, on the afternoon of the accident and flew to Venice Municipal Airport (VNC), Venice, Florida. The accident occurred during takeoff on the return flight to PIE while the airplane was operating under visual flight rules.

The airplane departed runway 23, which was 5,000 ft long. The track data suggested that the airplane lifted from the runway at 1937:44, about 4,100 ft beyond the approach end of the runway at 88 knots (kts) groundspeed. Over the remaining 900 ft of runway, the airplane accelerated to 90 kts groundspeed and climbed to about 50 ft. Over the next four seconds, the track data showed two plots, both at an altitude of 75 ft and groundspeeds of 91 kts and 94 kts, respectively, before the airplane descended. At 1938:00, the final plot depicted the airplane at 0 ft and 109 kts groundspeed about 1,800 ft beyond the departure end of runway 23.

Dark night conditions prevailed around VNC at the time of the accident. The reported weather included wind from 070° at 7 knots, a broken ceiling at 5,000 ft above ground level (agl), and 7 statute miles visibility.

Airport surveillance video from the time of the accident depicted an airplane departing runway 23 with little to no angle of climb into a dark sky over dark water with no discernable horizon.

Figure 1 shows preliminary flight track information in relation to the runway 23, with estimated altitudes and groundspeeds.

The pilot held a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. His most recent Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) third-class medical certificate was issued January 27, 2022, and he declared 10 total hours of flight experience on that date. The pilot’s logbook was not recovered.

The pilot conducted his flight training and rented the accident airplane from the same operator. An FAA aviation safety inspector reviewed the pilot’s rental and instruction record, which revealed that the pilot had accrued 74.2 total hours of flight experience, of which 67.6 were in the accident airplane make and model. The pilot obtained his private pilot certificate on July 31, 2022, and he had accrued 13.5 hours of flight experience since that date.

According to FAA and maintenance records, the airplane was manufactured in 1976 and was powered by a Lycoming O-320-E3D 150-horsepower engine. The airplane’s most recent 100-hour inspection was completed on November 2, 2022, at 7,653 total aircraft hours. Local emergency services and a commercial ocean salvage operator recovered most of the wreckage from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico, beneath about 15 ft of water. The engine, with propeller, engine mounts, firewall, and instrument panel attached, was found separated from the airplane and recovered as one piece. The cabin, containing the 2nd row seat, and the empennage with tail section attached, was raised along with both wings; attached by torn metal, control cables, and wires. Both wings displayed uniform crushing along their respective leading edges. The crushing displayed signatures consistent with hydraulic deformation. The wreckage was moved to a secure facility for examination. Control continuity was confirmed from the flight controls, through cuts made by recovery personnel, to all control surfaces.

About 4 feet of the fuselage between the instrument panel and the main wing spar box, which contained the main cabin door, the front seats, and the fuel selector valve, was separated from the airframe and not recovered.

Visual examination of the engine revealed only minor impact damage to the intake and exhaust stacks, mufflers, and ignition P-leads; the carburetor mount was fractured. The carburetor remained attached by the throttle and mixture cables. The engine rocker box covers were removed to facilitate the examination. The propeller was rotated by hand and continuity was established through the powertrain to the valvetrain and the accessory section. Compression was confirmed on all cylinders using the thumb method. The magnetos were removed, flushed with alcohol, dried, and produced spark at all terminal leads when rotated.

The carburetor was disassembled. Examination revealed that the floats were intact, and no anomalies were noted. The oil suction screen was clean, unobstructed, and absent of debris. The engine exam revealed no pre-impact mechanical anomalies that would have prevented normal operation.

At 3:15 PM a call to 911 from residents of a Boone County Neighborhood came to the Boone County Sheriff’s office with a report of a plane crash.

Officers arrived on the scene to find a Beechcraft A36 Bonanza fully engulfed in flames and the passengers nearby. Dr. Justin Cutler was the pilot and his wife the only passenger, neither suffered any injuries except for a minor scratch on the forehead.

Sheriff-elect Roy Martin was on the scene and confirmed that no one was taken to the hospital, and everyone involved escaped injury free. Both he and Airport Manager Judy McCutcheon called it a miracle.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is due to be in the area tomorrow morning to conduct the investigation. McCutcheon said that will consist of a visit to the crash site along with a lot of pictures, a visit with Dr. Cutler, and the mechanic that last worked on the aircraft.

McCutcheon said that Dr. Cutler reported the engine stopped for no apparent reason causing the plane to go down.

Until the NTSB conducts its investigation it is unlikely that any other details will come to light.
