    NTSB Identification: ANC12LA075
    14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
    Accident occurred Saturday, July 14, 2012 in Kenai, AK
    Aircraft: PIPER PA-18-150, registration: N7154Z
    Injuries: 2 Uninjured.
    This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

    On July 14, 2012, about 1515 Alaska daylight time, a float-equipped Piper PA-18 airplane, N7154Z, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing shortly after takeoff from a remote lake about 6 miles north of Kenai, Alaska. The airplane was being operated as a visual flight rules (VFR) cross-country personal flight under Title 14, CFR Part 91, when the accident occurred. The pilot and the sole passenger were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed. The flight was en route to the Lake Hood Seaplane Base, Anchorage, Alaska.

    During a telephone conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge (IIC) on April 14, the pilot reported that just after takeoff, as the airplane climbed to 100 feet above the water, the engine began to vibrate so violently that he was concerned that the engine may possibly separate. He reduced engine power, turned the airplane left to avoid trees at the departure end of the lake, and attempted an emergency landing on the lake. During the turn, the airplane continued to descend, and it subsequently collided with a shallow portion of the lake. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wings, fuselage, and empennage.

    The pilot reported that a postaccident examination revealed that a 6-inch portion of the propeller was missing.

    The airplane was equipped with a McCauley, two-bladed, fixed pitch, metal propeller, model number DES1A175. A portion of the fractured propeller blade was sent to the NTSB's Materials Laboratory for examination, and results are pending.

    I hear when that happens you also have to deal with not looking forward because windshield is vibrating too much to see through it, and you must land looking out side window.....

    NTSB Identification: ERA12FA465
    14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
    Accident occurred Thursday, July 19, 2012 in Berlin, MD
    Aircraft: PIPER PA-18-150, registration: N4330Z
    Injuries: 1 Fatal.
    This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

    On July 19, 2012, about 1050 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-18-150, N4330Z, was substantially damaged when it impacted a tree and terrain following a tow banner drop in Berlin, Maryland. The certificated commercial pilot was fatally injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight, which originated at Bunting's Field (4MD1), Berlin, Maryland. The banner tow operation was being conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

    According to several witnesses, the accident pilot was inbound to drop his first banner of the day and he radioed all three reporting points as he normally would. The southbound drop was also normal; however, instead of subsequently adding power and commencing a right turn per procedures, ground personnel did not hear the addition of power, and the airplane continued straight ahead. It eventually climbed slightly, the left wing dropped, and the airplane entered a left spin. It subsequently descended into a tree, then impacted the ground and immediately caught fire.

    Fellow pilots stated that the accident pilot consistently flew correct patterns, that he was considered the most cautious of the group, and that he would radio anytime he felt something was abnormal. However, he did not make any radio calls when the airplane flew straight ahead rather than turn to the right.

    The airplane was located next to a lake, at the base of an estimated 80-foot oak tree, in the vicinity of 38 degrees, 21.48 minutes north latitude, 075 degrees, 13.66 minutes west longitude. It came to rest about 185 degrees magnetic, ˝ nautical mile from the banner drop.

    The airframe was mostly consumed by fire, with primarily tubing and control cables remaining. The airplane was inverted, with the front half sticking up from the ground at an angle of about 60 degrees. Just aft of the single pilot seat, the fuselage was bent over to where it was upside-down, and the compressed tail rested against the ground. Some of the tubing on the airplane's right side, in the area of the bending, was completely separated with jagged edges.

    All flight control surfaces were accounted for at the scene. Flight control continuity was confirmed from the control stick and the rudder pedals to their respective control surfaces, except that the right rudder cable was separated, and appeared to be cut in the vicinity of where the airframe tubing was separated with jagged edges.

    The engine was fire-damaged, and its condition at the site precluded confirmation of crankshaft continuity. The metal propeller, which was recovered from the lake, exhibited torsional bending, with 90-degree bending near one end, and multiple bends and chordwise scratching on the other end. Approximately 25 feet of main tree trunk was separated from the top of the oak tree, with about 80 percent of the estimated 12-inch-diameter trunk having been cut at a 45-degree angle. Propeller blade torsional bending and 45-degree tree cuts are consistent with the presence of engine power at the time of impact.

    This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

    On July 18, 2012, about 1045 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-18-150, N2991Z, operated by Barnstormer Elite Signs Inc., was substantially damaged when it ditched into the Atlantic Ocean, after experiencing a total loss of engine power while maneuvering near North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The certificated commercial pilot sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan had been filed for the flight that originated from Grand Strand Airport (CRE), about 0900. The local banner tow flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

    According to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector, the pilot was flying near the shoreline, at an altitude of approximately 500 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, when the engine suddenly lost all power. The pilot was not able to restart the engine and performed a forced landing to the water. He was able to exit the airplane before it sank to a depth of about 30 feet. Fueling records revealed that the airplane's fuel tanks were "topped-off" the evening prior to the accident.

    The airplane was recovered on July 22, 2012. The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings and the empennage. Initial examination of the engine by an FAA inspector did not reveal any catastrophic mechanical malfunctions. The engine was retained for further examination.

    I wonder how many hours were on the propeller before it seperated?

    Man ohhhhh man glad i dont have one of them there super cubs. looking at all the ntsb reports I think I will stick to the short wing death trap. never ever started to ground loop or crash for unknown reasons. kinda think some need remedial training on how to use there feet and rudder and control the bird in a crosswind or heck just landing into the wind for that matter.

    Fly safe everyone and please use your feet and head before landing and takeing off. we are given these birds as caretakers of them to pass on to the next generation.
    I know there are many circumstances that we dont know about in these misshaps but to read all the groundloops is just plane crazy.

    John, from the NTSB database, PA-18s only, from 8/1/11 to 7/31/12, there were 54 accidents/incidents, including 7 fatalities. Of course, these are only the ones that get reported. I suspect that many fender-benders out in the middle of a field don't get reported.

    This report makes it seem like more (as if 54 in one year weren't enough) because I include Supercub cousins (ie, Pacers), and look-alikes (ie, Huskies), and sometimes airplanes like Beavers or Stinsons.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Anne.

    Sorry Kirby, it goes like this:

    Cause: Someone bends an airplane.
    Effect: It gets posted.

    Just want to tell everyone to please be careful out there. Attended a funeral service on Saturday for a friend that died in a trike crash over a week ago. He was giving rides to fellow members of our local EAA Chapter. His passenger was also injured. We all read these posting with little care and effect until one of these people is a friend. That is when a person starts to think of his/er flying habits and realizes things that we do sometimes are 'risky' and might need to be reevaluated. Steps should be taken to make sure we enjoy our flying with the utmost of safety and care. Still mourning the lose of a friend.

    Keith, my condolences to you, and your friend's family and friends. Aviation is a risky venture, and you're right, we need to be sure we're as careful as we can be, given the parameters of flight. People are depending on us as spouses, parents, and friends.

    Anne.

    See post #117:

    NTSB Identification: ANC12LA103
    14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
    Accident occurred Friday, September 07, 2012 in Homer, AK
    Aircraft: PIPER PA-18-150, registration: N3214D
    Injuries: 1 Uninjured.
    This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed. NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

    On September 7, 2012, about 1700 Alaska daylight time, a Piper PA-18-150 airplane, N3214D, presumably sustained substantial damage during a forced ditching, following a loss of engine power near Homer, Alaska. The certificated private pilot was not injured. The flight was being operated as a visual flight rules (VFR) personal cross-country flight under 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 when the accident occurred. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated at the Homer Airport, about 1600.

    In a telephone conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge (IIC), the pilot stated that he was attempting to land at an off-airport site in a coastal fjord approximately 35 nautical miles east of Homer. During the approach, at approximately 400 feet above ground level, he noticed that "the propeller looked like it was not spinning at the right RPM." He applied carburetor heat, and increased the throttle control, but the engine did not respond. From that point, he was unable to reach the intended landing site, and the airplane impacted water about 20 yards from shore.

    The pilot was able to exit the airplane, and he activated his 121.5 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT), but he was not located until September 10, when he was spotted by an overflying airplane. As of February 1, 2009, monitoring of 121.5 MHz ELT analog transmissions by all search and rescue satellites was terminated. On that date, only digital, 406 MHz ELT transmissions could be received by the satellites.

    The pilot reported that he attempted to secure the airplane to the shore, but tides and water flow swept the airplane into the fjord toward open water.

    The airplane has not been recovered.
