The Piper PA-30 which crashed in Haines, Alaska, and killed two had its engine intentionally shut off during flight by the pilot.

The pilot, David Kunat, had shut down the engine in an effort to demonstrate how to restart it during flight. The engine, however, could not be restarted.

The NTSB claims, “about 20 minutes into the flight, the pilot intentionally shut down the right engine and was demonstrating how to restart the engine during flight. Despite several attempts, the engine would not rotate through with electrical power to start the engine.” The NTSB believes a degraded battery may explain the failure to start.

Kliphton Miller, a legally blind man, was denied boarding on a flight with Frontier Airlines because he was deemed a ‘liability.’

Because Miller was traveling with his granddaughter, Frontier Airlines was concerned whether he could properly care for her.

Miller responded, “I would have been fine on the plane. Usually flight attendants will help me to the bathroom if I need to change her, but I can do it myself. I was a single dad for 10 years before I got married, and then I was a stay-at-home dad. I am completely capable.”

The airline later apologized, “I would have been fine on the plane,” Miller said. “Usually flight attendants will help me to the bathroom if I need to change her, but I can do it myself. I was a single dad for 10 years before I got married, and then I was a stay-at-home dad. I am completely capable.”
