Fiery plane crash kills pilot in Melbourne

ARFF Working Group - Fri, 06/08/2018 - 08:24

AAP

A PILOT is dead after a small plane crashed in the street and burst into flames in suburban Melbourne, missing homes by just metres.

The aircraft caught fire after it crashed in residential Scarlet Street at Mordialloc just after 5pm on Friday, police said. 

Emergency services found one person, believed to be a man, dead inside the plane.

A Scarlet Street resident told AAP he could see the burnt-out cockpit of the single-engine plane which came to rest in the middle of the street.

“The aircraft appears to be in one piece … by the look of it, he must have already been pretty low when he came down, rather than plunging from a great height,” the neighbour said.

“Someone said the plane bounced off the front fence of a house as it came down, just missing the house.”

Another neighbour, Robert Fox, said he saw firemen hosing down the burning plane, after sirens alerted him to the crash across the street.

“It was very intense, it was very strong. I guess it was the fuel tank,” he told AAP.

It’s believed there was only one person in the plane, which crashed a short distance south of Moorabbin Airport.

Police confirmed no one else was injured in the crash and that the Australian Transport Safety Bureau will investigate.

Small plane goes down in Butler County empty field; pilot suffers only minor injury

ARFF Working Group - Fri, 06/08/2018 - 08:23

By JONATHAN D. SILVER

A small homebuilt plane made an emergency landing Thursday morning in a Butler County horse pasture, and the sole occupant walked away with only a minor injury. 

The incident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. when the pilot, identified by police as Michael Axelrad of Pittsburgh, took off from Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport in the experimental plane.

Mr. Axelrad “immediately experienced a power loss,” Penn police Sgt. Cheryl Cranmer said. “As he was turning it around to turn back to the airport, he had what they call an off-runway landing. He was trying to bring it down into a field but managed to bring it down in a horse pasture.”

The plane, which landed about 1 1/2 miles from where it took off, had damage to its propeller but otherwise appeared intact, Sgt. Cranmer said. Its front end was lodged in some brush.

Mr. Axelrad, who the sergeant said was in his 60s or 70s, had a scrape on his forehead and was treated at the scene by ambulance personnel.

A fence was struck but there was no other damage to property, according to Sgt. Cranmer.

Fire, police and medical units responded to the scene, as did someone from the airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating. An agency spokeswoman said the aircraft was a Van’s RV-4, which is listed as a two-seater and is constructed from a kit.

Sgt. Cranmer described Mr. Axelrad as an accomplished pilot. She said he did not know why the power failed.

“He’s been flying it for a couple of years, so it’s not like it’s a new plane for him. He built it himself,” Sgt. Cranmer said, adding that he told her he had been working on it for about two decades and flying it for four years.

Pilot ‘dazed’ but OK after plane crashes into Englewood yard

ARFF Working Group - Fri, 06/08/2018 - 08:20

By: Jennifer Holton, FOX 13 News

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. (FOX 13) – Neighbors in an Englewood subdivision are breathing a sigh of relief after a small plane crash- landed into a yard off Old Englewood Road, a mere 15 feet from a house. They say thankfully, no one was injured.

Norman Ellis was busy treating his pool Thursday morning just before noon when all of a sudden, he noticed something was off with a nearby plane’s takeoff.

“I can see he was taking off,” he recalled, “and he started to take off, and he got up a little ways then he dipped down, I said, ‘He ain’t gonna make this. And he’s coming straight for me.’”

The plane veered down and hit a tree.

“He was spinning around in the air, and I ran into the house, because a lanai screen isn’t much protection,” Ellis continued.

A retired firefighter, Ellis immediately called 911 and was back outside in seconds.  The plane came within 15 feet of crashing into his home; thankfully, the pilot was OK.

“He was fine, he just sat there, he was kind of dazed. I couldn’t find any marks on him, he just opened the door and got out.”

The plane had taken off from Buchan Airport, the grass runway ending about 150 feet from where the man crashed. Just a few more feet, and Ellis says it could have been an entirely different story.

“I said, ‘You’re lucky to be alive.’”

Officials from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office spent the afternoon at the scene, speaking with the pilot. They’re awaiting the arrival of the FAA, who will continue the investigation.

VASP Flight 168 departed São Paulo for a flight to Fortaleza, with an intermediate stop at Rio de Janeiro (GIG). The first leg of the flight was uneventful. As the flight approached Fortaleza, the crew were cleared to descend from their cruising altitude of FL330 to FL50 (5000 feet). In night-time conditions with the bright lights of the city in front, the captain descended below 5000 feet. Despite two altitude alert system warnings and the co-pilot’s warning of the mountains ahead, the captain continued to descend below the minimum descend altitude. The Boeing then struck a wooded mountainside at 2500 feet.

HARRISBURG TOWER STRUCK WHILE RESPONDING

Firefighter Close Calls - Fri, 06/08/2018 - 05:57

-A Harrisburg fire truck responding to an emergency collided with a sport-utility vehicle at an intersection Thursday night in a crash that ensnared two other vehicles and sent nine people to area hospitals.

The crash at Cameron and Market streets occurred about 6:45 p.m.

Among the injured were three firefighters and a 5-year-old girl. All of the injuries are believed to be minor.

Police said City Tower One was eastbound on Market Street with lights and sirens activated when the northbound GMC Acadia struck the front of the truck.

The colliding vehicles then struck two other vehicles at the intersection.

Police said fire trucks generally have the right-of-way when headed to emergency calls. Drivers of emergency vehicles can proceed past red traffic signals after “slowing down as may be necessary for safe operation,” according to state law.

The details of the crash remain under investigation, said Battalion Chief Floyd Wise.

The damaged 2008 fire truck with a 75-foot ladder is among the oldest frontline rigs used by the city. It sustained damage to its front bumper, particularly at the front right corner, and will be out of service for a while for repairs.

In early December, the city’s newest fire truck was damaged when a minivan crashed into the parked wagon at South 25th and Market Streets. Firefighters were helping victims of an earlier accident when Wagon 4 was hit.

No survivors in Kenyan plane crash: Transport ministry

ARFF Working Group - Thu, 06/07/2018 - 16:45

The plane disappeared about 80 minutes after takeoff, the wreckage was found two days later. 

All 10 passengers of a small plane, whose wreckage was discovered in central Kenya two days after it went missing, died in the accident, the airline and government said Thursday.

“Unfortunately, from the reports we are getting there are no survivors. The families of the passengers and the crew have been notified and as a ministry, we truly regret this very sad outcome and send out our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families,” said Paul Maringa, principal secretary of the transport ministry.

A surveillance helicopter spotted the wreckage of the Cessna plane belonging to the FlySAX airline near the town of Njabini on the edge of the Aberdares mountain range early Thursday morning.

Search teams were dispatched to the site.

“It is with a heavy heart that I wish to inform you that we have received information there are no survivors in the recent incident that we had,” FlySAX chairman Charles Wako told journalists at the Weston Hotel after briefing families who had gathered there at a crisis centre.

The plane, operated by East African Safari Air Express, took off from the western town of Kitale in the late afternoon Tuesday.

It disappeared off the radar screens at Nairobi international airport, its final destination, about 80 minutes later, the owners said in a statement.

Kenya has been experiencing heavy rains which along with foggy conditions hampered search efforts by the Civil Aviation Authority, Kenya Wildlife Service, air force and Red Cross.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said the families of the victims would “have every assistance my administration can offer, now and in the days to come. They can be sure that there will be a full review of our procedures so that we can all understand how this tragedy happened.” 

Kenya has a vibrant airline industry, with national airline Kenya Airways operating internationally and locally alongside successful low-cost airlines and charter companies.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in 2014, some 130,000 planes land and take off from Kenya each year, and the country has 35 operating airlines.

The IATA said Kenya’s air transport infrastructure quality ranks 6th out of 37 countries surveyed in Africa.

In October 2017 five passengers were killed when a helicopter crashed into Lake Nakuru, while in 2012 a helicopter carrying internal security minister George Saitot crashed, killing all six passengers on board.

Kenya’s worst crash in recent years took place in 2007, when a Kenya Airways flight from Abidjan to Nairobi via Douala crashed into a swamp after take-off, killing all 114 passengers.

In 2000 another Kenya Airways flight from Abidjan to Nairobi crashed into the Atlantic Ocean minutes after take-off, killing 169 people while 10 survived.

Cheney pilot and retired Spokane firefighter killed in ultralight crash in Whitman County

ARFF Working Group - Thu, 06/07/2018 - 16:42

WHITMAN COUNTY, Wash. –

A pilot from Cheney died early Wednesday morning after crashing his ultra-light aircraft on the Snake River, according to the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office.  

Just after 7:00 a.m., deputies were notified of the crash after an employee of the Granite Dam found the wreckage. Deputies arrived on scene and found the single-occupant of the Solaris 16.8 ultralight, identified as 64-year-old Ronny Weston of Cheney, deceased.

Deputies say it is believed Weston was camping at Boyer Park with family and had used the airstrip earlier that morning, leaving on a short flight at around 6:30 a.m. Weston had just recently acquired the aircraft and was an experienced pilot, according to family members who spoke with the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office.

Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer confirmed with KHQ Wednesday night that Weston was a retired Spokane Firefighter.

The Whitman County Coroner’s Office is working with the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office and will assist in determining the exact cause and manner of death. The FAA was advised of the accident.

Our thoughts go out to Mr. Weston’s family.

Fond du Lac sheriff: man rescued after plane partially sinks in Lake Winnebago

ARFF Working Group - Thu, 06/07/2018 - 16:38

FOND DU LAC – A man is uninjured after his plane crashed into shallow water in Lake Winnebago Wednesday night.

Just after 7 p.m., the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s department was called to a report of a plane partially submerged in the lake about a quarter mile off the shore of Velvet Beach Road, the sheriff’s department said.

Upon arrival deputies said they found a 1980 Coot Amphibian plane submerged in about three-feet of water just west of N10664 Pukwana Beach Road.

According to the pilot, Glenn Moore of Elkhart Lake, during his take off one of the plane’s sponsons began to take on water. As he continued take off, one of the sponsons eventually tore off, causing the plane to take on more water and eventually sink.

Moore was able to get the attention of boaters in the area and was eventually towed back to shore safely, the sheriff’s department said.

The crash remains under investigation by the sheriff’s office and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Fake grenade leads to evacuation of Houston’s Hobby airport

ARFF Working Group - Thu, 06/07/2018 - 16:37

A toy grenade in a passenger’s bag forced the shutdown of a security checkpoint at Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport Thursday morning, just a day after the international terminal of the city’s other major airport was evacuated due to a bomb scare.

HOUSTON (AP) – A toy grenade in a passenger’s bag forced the shutdown of a security checkpoint at Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport Thursday morning, just a day after the international terminal of the city’s other major airport was evacuated due to a bomb scare.

Houston Airport System spokesman Bill Begley said people were allowed to approach the checkpoint again after a bomb squad determined that the suspicious item spotted by a Transportation Security Administration agent was a “novelty grenade.”

Hobby Airport is a hub for Southwest Airlines. The website FlightAware indicated delays of an hour or more for flights arriving and departing the airport immediately after the security checkpoint reopened.

An Associated Press journalist was in the line when a TSA agent raised the alarm at about 4:35 a.m., forcing hundreds of people to move away from the immediate area on both sides of the security checkpoint.

The explosives scare occurred only a day after police detained “an impatient passenger” who made comments about explosives in a bag at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport. Begley said that unidentified passenger’s “inappropriate comment” prompted a bomb squad to close the international terminal for nearly an hour.

The episode created a backlog of at least a thousand people waiting to go through security.

Begley stressed that, especially during the busy summer travel season, anyone with any doubts as to what can be carried on a plane should check the TSA’s “What can I bring?” website before packing their bags.

Today in History

ARFF Working Group - Thu, 06/07/2018 - 16:36

29 Years ago today: On 7 June 1989 a Surinam Airways McDonnell Douglas DC- 8-62 crashed on approach to Paramaribo, killing 176 of the 187 occupants.

Date: Wednesday 7 June 1989 Time: 04:27 Type: McDonnell Douglas DC-8-62 Operator: Surinam Airways Registration: N1809E C/n / msn: 46107/498 First flight: 1969 Total airframe hrs: 52706 Cycles: 20342 Engines:Pratt & Whitney JT3D-7 Crew: Fatalities: 9 / Occupants: 9 Passengers: Fatalities: 167 / Occupants: 178 Total: Fatalities: 176 / Occupants: 187 Airplane damage: Destroyed Airplane fate: Written off (damaged beyond repair) Location: 3 km (1.9 mls) W of Paramaribo-Zanderij International Airport (PBM) (   Suriname) Phase: Approach (APR) Nature: International Scheduled Passenger Departure airport: Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport (AMS/EHAM), Netherlands Destination airport: Paramaribo-Zanderij International Airport (PBM/SMJP), Suriname Flightnumber: PY764

Narrative:
Surinam Airways (SLM) carried out regular flights between Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport (AMS) and Paramaribo (PBM) using DC-8-60 planes. One of these a US-registered plane, N1809E, named “Anthony Nesty”. The air crew was furnished by Air Crew International (ACI). The contract between Surinam Airways and ACI stipulated that ACI would furnish SLM with qualified crew members who held FAA certificates and who met the regulatory requirements to fly the DC-8. ACI did not provide for proficiency checks but left it to the individual pilots to meet the training and other requirements of their profession. One of the captains provided by ACI was involved in several incidents while operating on SLM flights. After investigation, SLM instructed ACI not to use this captain in future SLM assignments. However, he still acted as a crew member of several flights since.
The captain was again scheduled on the accident flight PY764. According to regulations, the captain was not even qualified to act as pilot-in-command of that flight because of his age. He was 66 years old and Surinam regulations stipulated that “the holder of a pilot certificate is not authorized to act as pilot during commercial flights when he/she has reached age 60”. Also, his most recent proficiency check flight was on a GA-7 Cougar twin instead of a DC-8.
Flight PY764 departed Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport at 23:25 (June 6) on a flight to Paramaribo (PBM). The en route part of the flight was uneventful and about 20 minutes before arrival in Paramaribo the crew received the 07:00 UTC weather for Zanderij Airport: Wind calm, visibility 900 m in fog, temperature/dewpoint 22°C/22°C. This caught the crew by surprise since the previous weather information had included a visibility of 6 km. Because the ILS was not to be used for operational purposes, the copilot said: “We don’t legally have an ILS … we have to use it”. The captain responded affirmatively. The crew were confident that they could land because they assumed that the fog was localized given the fact that they were able to see the airport during the descent.
Zanderij Tower then cleared the flight for a VOR/DME approach to runway 10. The captain tuned in to the ILS and instructed the first officer to set the final approach course for the published VOR/DME approach on the first officer’s side.
During the approach the first officer reported that he could see the airport:”Runway’s at twelve o’clock”. A minute later he commented “A little bit of low fog comin’ up I reckon just a little bit”. He was still able to see the runway and reported the runway in sight. The DC-8 then entered some stratus clouds the captain told the first officer to “Tell him [tower controller] to turn the runway lights up … Tell him to put the runway lights bright”. The captain attempted to capture the unreliable ILS glide slope signal, but failed to capture it.
The Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) sounded several times: “Glideslope … glideslope…” until it was deactivated. The captain was flying the aircraft below the minimum altitude for the ILS/DME approach procedure (260 ft asl) as well as below the minimum descent altitude for the VOR/DME approach procedure (560 ft). The first officer called out: “Two hundred feet”. Thirteen seconds later the no. 2 engine contacted a tree. The right wing then struck another tree, causing the aircraft to roll, striking the ground inverted. The airplane broke up and a fire erupted.

Probable Cause:

CAUSE: “The Commission determines: a) That as a result of the captain’s glaring carelessness and recklessness the aircraft was flown below the published minimum altitudes during the approach and consequently collided with a tree. b) As underlying factor in the accident was the failure of SLM’s operational management to observe the pertinent regulations as well as the procedures prescribed in the SLM Operations Manual concerning qualification and certification during recruitment and employment of the crew members furnished by ACI.”
