Plane flips over at Pitt Meadows airport

ARFF Working Group - 1 hour 45 min ago

The pilot and lone occupant exited the aircraft on his own and uninjured.

By MIKE HALL

A single-engine plane flipped over just off a runway Monday at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport.

Emergency crews responded just before 11 a.m. after a report from the air traffic control tower of a plane crash.

They arrived to find a single-engine Aviat A-1B Husky aircraft had flipped onto its roof just off one of the runways.

The pilot and lone occupant exited the aircraft on his own and uninjured, according to reports.

Pitt Meadows Fire and Rescue, as well as RCMP attended the scene.

The pilot lost control of the plane after touching down for a landing, said co-acting fire chief Brad Perrie.

“It just went off the runway and then ended up flipping upside down.”

Perrie added no injuries were reported, nor any fuel leaks.

The pilot was seen by paramedics and not transported to hospital.

Today in History

ARFF Working Group - 1 hour 47 min ago

34 Years ago today: On 19 February 1985 an Iberia Boeing 727 crashed into a mountain near Bilbao, Spain; all 148 on board were killed.

Date: Tuesday 19 February 1985 Time: 09:27 Type: Boeing 727-256 Operator: Iberia Registration: EC-DDU C/n / msn: 21777/1487 First flight: 1979-05-18 (5 years 9 months) Total airframe hrs: 13408 Cycles: 12347 Engines:Pratt & Whitney JT8D-9A Crew: Fatalities: 7 / Occupants: 7 Passengers: Fatalities: 141 / Occupants: 141 Total: Fatalities: 148 / Occupants: 148 Aircraft damage: Destroyed Aircraft fate: Written off (damaged beyond repair) Location: 30 km (18.8 mls) SE of Bilbao Airport (BIO) (   Spain) Crash site elevation: 1023 m (3356 feet) amsl Phase: En route (ENR) Nature: Domestic Scheduled Passenger Departure airport: Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD/LEMD), Spain Destination airport: Bilbao Airport (BIO/LEBB), Spain Flightnumber: IB610

Narrative:
Iberia Flight 610 departed Madrid at 08:47 for a scheduled flight to Bilbao, where it was scheduled to land at 09:35. The Boeing 727, named “Alhambra de Granada”, climbed to the cruising altitude of FL260. At 09:09 the crew were instructed to descend to FL100. Seven minutes later the copilot contacted Bilbao Tower. The controller then cleared the flight for an ILS approach: “Iberia 610, you can continue descent, for an ILS approach to Bilbao, runway 30, wind is 100 degrees 3 knots, QNH 1025 and transition level 70.” This was confirmed by the crew. The controller subsequently offered them a direct clearance to the approach fix, which is located at 13 DME from the airport. The captain declined and decided to fly the standard approach procedure.
At 09:22 flight 610 reported over the Bilbao VOR at 7000 feet, starting the standard approach procedure. The airplane further descended to 5000 feet, which it reached three minutes later. The crew switched the Altitude Alert System to 4300 ft (the minimum sector altitude is 4354 feet) and continued the descent. The altitude alert horn sounds 900 feet prior to reaching the preset altitude (approach mode) and 300 feet below that altitude (deviation mode). Since the flight had 700 feet to go, the horn would only sound at around 4000 feet. Since the crew descended below the minimum sector altitude, the altitude alert horn sounded at 4040 feet. The crew interpreted this being the approach mode alert, and continued their descent. Fifty-seven seconds after passing through the minimum sector altitude, the airplane struck the base of a structure of antennas located close to the top of Mount Oiz (3356 feet high). The left wing broke off and the remaining fuselage crashed onto the hillside, cutting a swath through the trees

Probable Cause:

CAUSE: “Their confidence on the automatic capture performed by the Altitude Alert System, the misinterpretation of its warnings, as well as a probable misreading of the altimeter made the crew to fly below the safety altitude, colliding into the television antennas’ base, thus losing the left wing, falling to the ground with no possible control of the aircraft.”
