    Speculation that P2 had a door (tail ramp) open and fell while attempting to inspect the gear rather than intentionally abandoning the aircraft.

    That article was horribly written. The pilot who exited the plane did not survive.

    Fatal accident... (pilot falls to death before emergency landing)
    (29/July/2022)
    - United States of America :
    A Spore Ltd LLC/Rampart Aviation LLC CASA CN 212-200 Aviocar twin engine plane, registration N497CA, sustained unknown damage when it was involved in an accident at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU/KRDU), Morrisville, North Carolina.
    The captain sustained minor injuries, and first officer was fatally injured.

    Preliminary information indicates that the aircraft (call sign Shady 02) was used for civilian contracted aircraft for training military troop jumpers. Review of the flight data shows that the crew were conducting flight maneuvers, the aircraft landed hard at Raeford West Airport, and the crew decided to divert to RDU after suffering problems with the fixed right-hand landing gear (lost the wheel).

    What happened after that remains unclear, multiple news sites reported that the co-pilot, aged 23, "jumped" from the plane. On going speculation on aviation blogs suggests the pilot fell from the airplane while trying to inspect the damage. Review of the accident photos (photo number 2 on this post) shows that the tail gate was open.

    The captain managed to reach RDU, made a low pass, circled around and landed, during the landing sequence, the aircraft veered to the right and sustained unspecified damage.

    The NTSB defines an aviation accident as the following:

    "Aircraft accident means an occurrence associated with the operation of an aircraft which takes place between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight and all such persons have disembarked, and in which any person suffers death or serious injury, or in which the aircraft receives substantial damage."

    WTF.
    One time I returned from flying the 185, parked, and decided I was having a very fun day, so I fired up the cub and went up the river, exploring. When I return to our yard my wife was gone and left a message saying WTF!
    I texted back, "Was That Fun?, why yes it was." She found my response humorous enough to forgive me. I don't think this copilot's experience was that fun. What Thinking Friend?

    Would be interesting to know who was flying during the “hard landing”, but no way to know.

    Pretty bizarre accident in any case.

    I doubt it in that CASA. The pilot would have had to leave his seat, leaving the cockpit unoccupied. There was an incident near hear a few years ago when a person went for a local "sightseeing" trip (Cessna 150 as I recall) asking to circle his "girl friend's" house. While they were circling the house the passenger opened the door and jumped out. Surprised the pilot who couldn't hold him back. ........ Splat! True story.
