Controlled Crash of Cessna
Nosewheel would not come down, pilot burnt off fuel and performed the
inevitable landing. Steady filming provided by Sam from MKT airfield in
Noonamah. Great effort by all involved.
Emergency Landing During Flight To Niagara Falls - Pilot Peter Besenyei
Besenyei was required to make an emergency landing near St Thomas Airport
in Ontario during a photo shoot and the damage could not be repaired in
time for the Windsor race. Thanks to his skilled piloting, the Hungarian
pilot, who got a season-high fourth place in San Diego, walked away with
only a few bruises and was not otherwise injured. I was doing a flight with
Nigel to take some pictures and during the final run I had a technical
problem, Besenyei said. I lost oil pressure, which in the end caused the
engine to fail, and I had to make a forced landing outside the field. The
plane is damaged but I can repair it. The most important thing is that
there was no injury. Im 100 percent okay and thats the most important
thing. Besenyei will join the championship again at the next race which
takes place in Budapest, Hungary.
Here's a great article about the emergency landing written by Red Bull Air

at Birmingham, UK with the right landing gear missing, after tearing off
the starboard gear when attempting to land at East Midlands Airport in bad
weather. The pilot missed the runway and landed in the grass, doing
extensive damage to the aircraft. He was able to fly some 40 miles to
Birmingham, where the incident was caught on video by the West Midlands
PLANE ACCIDENT, Cessna 404 Airplane crash landing
Check out this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uc0ARiBIB4
This video was shot on Dec 14th,2010 after a hydraulic line failure in our
404 Titan forced us to make an emergency landing with the gear up. The
emergency blow down bottle had a valve malfunction as well so there was no
option available from that point on other than to find a place to sit it
down. At the end of the slide down the runway there was a small fire
on-board which I extinguished before exiting the aircraft with my crew
member closely on my six . I'd like to send my thanks out to my crew
member, the engineers in Wichita and to the ground crew mechanics at
Mountain Home Airport in Arkansas for their assistance in relaying the
communications with the engineers at Cessna, and for their mechanical
knowledge that they shared with us during this unusual situation we found
ourselves in. Here's the link to the KY3 TV news station for an outside
view of what was going on.
Since posting this video it's been pirated by everyone imaginable so this
is the real footage that I shot inside while this incident was taking place

Jet Blue Airbus nose gear failure on landing
On 9/22/05, a JetBlue Airbus pilot couldn't get his nose gear to rotate
into landing position. This video of the safe and successful landing at
Los Angeles International airport shows the best possible outcome to every
passenger's worst nightmare.
TNT Boeing 737-300F Accident at Birmingham
Investigators have disclosed that the TNT Airways Boeing 737-300 freighter
which conducted an apparent gear-up landing at Birmingham Airport, UK last
month had actually lost its right main undercarriage during a failed
attempt to land at Nottingham a few minutes earlier.
Owing to poor weather at London Stansted, following a flight from Liege,
Belgium on 15 June, the aircraft had diverted to Nottingham East Midlands
Airport and was carrying out a Category IIIA approach to runway 27 at
around 05:40, reports the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).
About 1nm (1.8km) from touchdown the aircrafts approach became unstable,
after a momentary disconnection and re-engagement of the autopilot. The 737
rose above the glideslope, before descending rapidly and deviating to the
left of the centreline.
Although the crew began a go-around the aircraft landed heavily on grass to
the left of the runway threshold the impact tearing off the right main
landing-gear and causing damage to the right inboard flaps, wing-fuselage
fairing, hydraulic system and the rear freight hold door.
Despite the damage, and although the aircrafts outer wing and starboard
engine contacted the ground, the 737 managed to become airborne again. The
crew declared an emergency and diverted to Birmingham, where weather
conditions were good, touching down on runway 33 at 06:02.
With its right main-gear absent, the aircraft came to rest on its starboard
engine. Neither of the two crew members of the 737-300, a 19-year old
example registered OO-TND, was injured.
Both airports suffered disruption to operations as a result of the
accident. AAIB personnel are carrying out an inquiry into the
circumstances. The organisation says: At this early stage of the
investigation it is not considered necessary to make any formal safety
Piper Warrior Crash Landing At Bethlehem Aerodrome
Subscribe to MikeCharlie 794 for HD GoPro flying videos from his journey of
gaining an ATPL: youtube.com/user/mikecharlie794
Aircraft: Piper PA 28-235 (ZS-EKB)
Time/Date: 29 July 2006 1000Z
Location: Bethlehem Aerodrome, South Africa
Cause of crash: The pilot landed the aircraft in wind shear conditions,
which caused the approach speed to be in excess of the correct approach
speed causing the plane too balloon upon the flare and the pilot failed to
initiate the go around but decided to try and land and hit the runway
several times before the nose gear collapsed.
The full report can be found here
162.pdf However the report does not contain information about that the
pilot made the mistake of forcing the plane onto the runway.
Cessna 182 RC Plane Crash
Plastic wing supporters broke off due to major G force, anyone with this
plane should reinforce or change the plastic to aluminum.
This is the latest version of CESSNA 182 with 2.4GHz Radio System. Compared
with the old version (AP03-4), it has modified battery box, and the plane
body has newly equipped with supporting rod, this increases the strength of
the plane. Further more, flap is added to the plane body to enhance flight
performance on stability. This 5CH Skyartec Cessna 182 is different from
others. This Cessna is equipped with 4 servos not 3 servos as common. It
includes everything the beginner needs. RC Toys
