Fatal T-6 Plane Crash in Santa Rosa, Florida - 3/6/2010
On March 6, 2010, at 1236 central standard time, a North American SNJ-6, N47LF, was destroyed when it impacted the Gulf of Mexico about 1 mile south of Topsail Hill Reserve State Park, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The certificated commercial pilot and the passenger were fatally injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The airplane, part of a five-airplane formation, was not operating on a flight plan. The personal flight was being conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

Fatal plane crash - DH4 Caribou with controls locked
Results Of A Poor (or no) Preflight: Two test pilots on board, and no one
checked the controls free and clear before starting t/o roll. It hurts to
watch this video, but it's a dramatic reminder that there really are good
reasons to do a thorough preflight and to make sure the controls are free.
This happened just north of Winnipeg, and the aircraft was the first
version with PT-6-67 turboprops.
('Modernized' Caribou.) The Canadian DOT concluded that the control locks
were still locked when the aircraft took off. You who have flown the
Caribou wonder how that could have happened when it is physically
impossible to advance the throttles (past 1800 RPM) with the gust-lock in
-- but this aircraft had been modified (still Restricted Category) and the
throttle quadrant was not properly rigged to accommodate the throttle
levers for the turbine engines.

180 Autorotation accident - Low rotor RPM
According to the pilot-in-command (PIC), he was performing autorotations at
the lower part of the main rotor rpm green arc in part due to weight
considerations. Upon entering the accident autorotation, he maintained an
airspeed between 85-90 knots in the hope that extra speed would allow a
more aggressive deceleration flare prior to touchdown, which should in turn
further slow the rate of descent and forward speed. The helicopter's rate
of descent was high, and as the PIC turned the helicopter onto the runway
heading it was apparent to him that the rate of descent was excessive and
that he was too low to execute either a proper deceleration flare or
perform a power recovery. He attempted to level the helicopter as much as
possible prior to impact to minimize the damage to the helicopter and
prevent injury. The helicopter landed hard with the left skid contacting
the runway first. The left skid collapsed, damaging the outboard landing
gear damper attachment structure. The helicopter slid about 100 yards
before coming to a stop. According to the manufacturer, the main rotor rpm
range is 90 percent to 106.4 percent. At the helicopter's weight and the
density altitude on the day of the accident, the main rotor rpm during the
autorotation should have been above the 106.4 percent limit (red line),
requiring the pilot to increase collective pitch to maintain the rotor rpm
within limits. Performing autorotations at the lower part of the green arc
provides less availability of rotor energy to perform an autorotation
landing. The pilot should have recognized that he was not achieving the
required main rotor rpm for the autorotations and terminated the maneuvers.
The helicopter was within weight and balance limits.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s)
of this accident as follows:
The pilot's failure to maintain adequate main rotor rpm during an
autorotation, which resulted in a hard landing.
