I'm moving my plane to the White Bear grass strip in a week. I'll have to call down there and get the story on this one. Glad to see no one was hurt.

It was fuel contamination.

North Pole man, 3 others survive plane crash near King Salmon
by The Associated Press
1 hr 10 mins ago | 366 views | 0 0 comments | 3 3 recommendations | email to a friend | print
KING SALMON, Alaska - A small airplane trying to reach King Salmon crashed near the southwest Alaska community but all four people on board survived.

Alaska State Troopers say a Piper PA-14 piloted by 44-year-old Douglas Bradbury of North Pole was flying at around noon Thursday from Igiugig to King Salmon in bad weather.

The airplane was in a holding pattern near King Salmon when the airplane's engine began to run rough and lost power.

Bradbury made an emergency landing north of the village near King Salmon Creek and called for help by satellite phone. A private helicopter carried the pilot and passengers to King Salmon.

Troopers say medics checked and cleared all persons on board. The airplane was demolished.

PALMER -- No one was injured during a hard landing near Palmer Airport on Tuesday afternoon, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Troopers say they were called to the area about 2:50 p.m. to a report that a Piper Cub Special had gone down.

They learned that Arizona resident John Osborne, 57, had just taken off from Palmer Airport heading south with an instructor, Palmer resident Brett Crowley, 37, troopers said.

The aircraft got about 500 feet in the air when its engine failed, and Osborne had to make an emergency landing, troopers said.

The airplane went down in a field and suffered moderate damage, according to troopers.

I watched the accident and Brett's actions. The area that he put the plane down, while surrounded by fields, these fields are all bordered with multiple power lines. He managed to avoid all and the two of them walked away without a scratch. the A/C has damage to the gear but will fly again soon.
Nice job Brett.
 
Supercub vs Agplane on the ramp at McCook 7/22/10

Here's a link: http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/1651411.html

Good friends on the way to Oshkosh. The REALLY good news was they were swapping legs in the Supercub and the Van with kids; were conferring on next leg. Two more minutes and Mom and Son would probably have been in the plane.

The picture shows the S'cub down to steel.

If anyone knows more, please share.

Thanks. cubscout

Commercial pilot dies in crash of floatplane near Ketchikan

A man died in a commercial floatplane crash this morning north of Ward Cove near Ketchikan, according to Beth Ipsen, a spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers.

The pilot, identified as Josh Murdock from Ketchikan. He was alone onboard, Ipsen said.

Murdock, 38, was found dead at the scene. The crash was reported around 7:30 a.m. today.

The plane, a 1959 Beaver DHC-2, is owned by Pacific Airways Inc. of Ketchikan, said Clint Johnson, senior air safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board.

Fish boxes were found in the wreckage, according to investigators.

The plane was en route from Ketchikan to Thorne Bay when it crashed in a nonresidential area about five miles north of Ketchikan, Johnson said.

The plane was found on a knoll off the Tongass Highway in the Ward Cove area, Ipsen said.

Witnesses said the plane clipped some trees, causing it to lose its right wing before crashing, she said.

The NTSB is investigating, she said.

No criticism intended but wouldn't a ferry permit be required to move the plane?

Stuff happens. I'm glad it wasn't serious. Pretty humble comments were quoted in the story. Nice job with that.

Who could this be???



The pilot was on a local flight around his home airport when he decided to see how much snow was on the local mountains. He observed a ridge top where he had landed on several previous occasions, and saw that most of it was blown clear of snow. He overflew the strip, and looked it over closely. He decided that it looked good, and made an uneventful landing. He walked around a bit, looked at snow depths, and then departed back to his home airport. During the takeoff roll, the airplane got a little too far to the right over onto what he thought was ground covered with light snow. It was actually a snow drift made from the snow that had blown to the side of the ridge. The airplane started pulling to the right as a result of contact with the snow drift. The pilot still thought that the airplane would take off without difficulty, but the right main tire broke through the crust and dug in. The airplane nosed over onto the snow drift. The pilot quickly shut off all switches, put his arm up to the ceiling to brace himself, and released his seat belt and shoulder harness. After just a few seconds, he went back into the airplane, shut off the fuel selector valve, and retrieved a snowmobile suit that he had in the baggage along with a global positioning system (GPS) unit, a personal locator beacon, and a survival kit. He was able to get a cell phone signal, and called his wife to set up a pick up point. He hiked, mostly in the dark, 2-3 miles with 3,000 feet of downhill elevation change through very deep snow to get to the pick up point.
 
It can happen to any of us. Cary's a class act--glad no injuries and hope everything is readily fixable. Welcome to the Hat Group!
 
And once again I think there should be some thought to removing (under certain circumstances) some of these accidents from the general accident pool of information and penalties or even FAA investigation. When you go dirt biking and fall down with no injuries and it was just a judgement call, you get up, kick the pegs down and go on. Experimental should require a phone call to FAA to make sure "off airport parameters were met" and of course certified would need mechanic inspection (experimental already requires builder to certify airworthy). Just a thought. Dangerous to public locations or operation, injuries or any property damage to other than the plane then fall back to FAA for investigation. Maybe an off airport endorsement to show you understand the parameters. Also insurance companies get off the hook (keep every one elses rates lower) or maybe a larger deductible (for hull damage only) since your obviously operating in the "play zone" when off airport. It just seems silly to me that these accidents fall into the same catagory as "regular" operations when they are more like dirt biking, off roading and snowmobiling than anything else. jm.02$
 
What's up with the hat? If you go belly up, you get a hat? I've never heard of this before.
