The pilot of a single engine plane in central Florida walked away from a crash landing that could have ended worse.

The pilot was mid-flight when the plane’s engine began sputtering, prompting the pilot to make an emergency landing at the nearest airport in Seminole County.

During the landing the pilot made contact with the runway but was unable to control the aircraft as it moved down the strip. The plane then hit a chain-link fence, causing the plane to jolt into the grass and eventually come to a stop.

The pilot walked away unharmed and the FAA has opened an investigation. An article on this incident can be found here.

Malaysia Air Flight MH-370 Report Released

Author: admin  |  Category: Crash Landing

.

In what is considered to be one of the greatest aviation mysteries in history, a new report released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau sheds new light on the disappearance of Malaysia Air Flight MH-370.

Recent discovery of MH-370’s flaperons near the East Africa provided investigators with enough clues to draw a startling conclusion: the fateful flight spiraled at high velocity toward the Indian Ocean.

While the investigation has much to find out still, the conclusion discounts a prevailing theory which thought the pilots of MH-370 water ditched in the Indian Ocean. The plane may have lost control and instead disintegrated once hitting the water.

Landing Gear Collapse on Fedex Freight Flight FX-910

Author: admin  |  Category: Crash Landing, emergency landing

.

Fedex Express Flight FX-910, delivering cargo from Memphis to Fort Lauderdale, had its main landing gear collapse during landing, which resulted in a fire on the plane’s left engine.

When the plane made contact with the runway, the left main gear collapsed. Consequently the plane’s left wing and its engine scraped along the tarmac, causing the fire, and dragged along the runway until the plane came to a stop.

A blazing fire ensued. Two flight crew members were on board at the time and both escaped through the right cockpit window. The NTSB has opened an investigation.

Vice Presidential Nominee Mike Pence’s Plane Skids Off Runway

Mike Pence, the Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee, departed Fort Dodge, Iowa, in his campaign plane and was landing in New York City for a fundraiser when it skidded off the runway.

The Boeing 737-700 approached LaGuardia Airport during poor weather conditions. Reports state there was heavy rain, win, and fog during the landing.

When the plane hit the tarmac, the landing gear failed to sustain traction and hydro-glided off the runway. A CNN producer on board, Elizabeth Lander, stated, “you could feel the plane skidding…it felt like it fishtailed.”

As the plane skidded towards the 7,000 feet runway’s end, it made contact with the runway’s protective barriers, which are designed to stop aircraft that overshoot the runway. The aircraft destroyed 80 barriers before it fully stopped.

One minute after word reached the airport’s responders, they were on the scene. On arrival, they found Pence and media staff lingering in the rain. Pence, purportedly unharmed, quickly presumed his political composure on the tarmac and began taking pictures with the rescue crew.

The NTSB began an investigation of the accident and a official report of it is available here.

In Concord, California, a Beech 36 Aircraft with one on board crashed near a hill during its approach for landing.

Bystanders reported around 12pm they witnessed a plane go down around Kirker Pass Road. When first responders arrived, they confirmed one fatality — that being the pilot.

Initial theories of the crash purport the plane clipped a power line, which destabilized the plane.
