Wheels up instead of wings up for a Cessna 208 that ended up in a vineyard around 2:30 Thursday afternoon near the Lodi airport.

Cindy Martin was next to her husband in their new pickup when she saw something strange and tried to warn him.

“This plane’s gonna hit us.  It’s really low, almost to the ground, and before we knew it we felt a bump in the back of our … truck,” she said.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration say that bump came as a Cessna Caravan experienced some kind of engine trouble and its pilot was trying to return to Lodi airport with the 17 skydivers he had onboard.

Amazingly, no serious injuries for those bumped on the ground or flipped inside the plane.

“We don’t have any real information other than talking to the pilots and people onboard. The whirly thing stopped whirling and then ran out of sky so they ended up here in the field,” said Bill Dause, owner of the Lodi Parachute Center.

This is the terrifying moment a JetBlue flight was hit by severe turbulence causing a refrigerator to ‘explode’ and leaving eight people injured.

Frightened passengers described the shaking plane as being ‘like a movie’ after oxygen masks fell from above their heads and they were ordered to fasten their seatbelts.

Cabin crew were making their way through the aisle with their trolleys filled with food and drinks when the aircraft began to violently shake.

“The belts were buckled and at that moment the plane (hit turbulence) and the oxygen systems came down. The doors of refrigerators exploded - it was horrible.”

The plane landed safely at Orlando International Airport at 9pm local time and medics rushed on board to tend to the eight injured, who were then taken to Florida Hospital East.

Turbulence on JetBlue flight from Puerto Rico to Orlando sends 8 people to the hospital

Just moments after the flight attendants ran to their seats, the JetBlue Airways airplane flying from Puerto Rico to Orlando Monday night took a steep plunge toward the earth.

The plane shook and shook, tossing passengers around in their seats and rattling loose food from the cabin refrigerators.

“It’s like the tower of terror,” passenger Veronica Hernandez Torres told WESH-TVreferencing the ride at Walt Disney World themed after the television show The Twilight Zone, that drops riders hundreds of feet while they’re buckled inside an elevator. “The same feeling that when the towers go down, everybody goes up.”

Hernandez Torres suffered a bruise on her leg and her young daughter, 5-year-old Amaia, was in shock, WESH-TV reported. When the turbulence subsided, some passengers were handed ice packs, Hernandez Torres said. She told the TV station she saw at least two people whack their heads on the overhead compartment. ABC News reported that the plane dropped 100 feet in altitude.

This is the second incident of extreme turbulence in the last week that sent people aboard U.S. flights to the hospital.

NTSB Reveals Details in Small Plane Crash that Killed 3

From abc7ny.com. By Dianna Rocco.

he small plane that crashed on Long Island last week broke up mid-air before it crashed to the ground, killing all three on board, the NTSB said in a preliminary report released Tuesday.

The NTSB’s report said the pilot of the Beech V35B aircraft first reported an issue at about 3:30 p.m., when the plane was flying at 7,000 feet. The pilot said the plane experienced a failure of the vacuum system and associated gyroscopic instruments.

He told the air traffic controller he planned to continue to his destination airport - in Plainville, Connecticut - without use of his instruments. He was flying based on what he could see.

A few minutes later, the pilot radioed that his plane’s instruments kicked back in and he lost control of the airplane and lost more functionality of instruments.

Investigators examined the wreckage, saying that while flight control continuity could not be verified, “all recovered flight control cables exhibited broomstraw separation, consistent with overstress.” The NTSB did not a specific cause of the crash, as the investigation is ongoing.
