Pretty cool calm and collected.  Everyone ok.
VAN NUYS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A small jet landed at Van Nuys Airport with stuck landing gear, safely sliding to a halt on the runway with no major damage or injury on Tuesday.

The Cessna 550 Citation II, a corporate jet, circled the airport for at least 10 to 15 minutes as the pilot communicated with the tower about the gear problem, and apparently burned off fuel.

It then descended steadily and touched down on the runway. The nose dipped down and skidded along the ground, throwing up sparks as the plane slowed. The aircraft otherwise remained steady and did not swerve or leave the runway. No fire was seen. Shortly after the plane came to a stop on the ground, two occupants walked out and there was no immediate indication of serious injury.

Multiple emergency vehicles were prepared on the runway for the landing.

Feed Outage/Status Reports / Re: KFNL Feed
« Last post by eliveatc on November 23, 2022, 12:35:23 PM »
The feed for KFNL has been spotty since Monday.  The old ISP (FRII) was purchased by a new provider last month (VistaBeam).  The new ISP is having connectivity issues.  They have no time estimate for repair.  My apologies.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - A helicopter collided with a Cessna Friday morning at the North Las Vegas Airport. No major injuries were reported but the incident is once again raising safety concerns.

“Thank goodness nobody was killed today but they easily could have been,” said Will Bradley, an active flight instructor and a retired Army Safety Specialist trained to spot accidents before they happen.

The FAA reported the single-engine Cessna struck the hovering helicopter after landing. Only the pilot was on board the helicopter. Two people were on board the Cessna.

“I didn’t want to be right, but it looks like I am right because this is the second crash in a few months,” asserted Bradley. Bradley said for years, he has tried to sound the alarm about safety concerns.“North Las Vegas is a dangerous airport. It is very confusing. There is high-flight training there. There is terrain around,” Bradley explained.

Confusion may have led to two planes trying to land on the same runway in July with deadly consequences. Four people were killed. In September, the FAA hosted a meeting to discuss safety concerns at the airport.

Aviation officials shared a master plan to modernize the airport would begin this month, but the construction process could take years to complete.

Bradley maintains changes cannot wait while he believes lives are at stake.“In my opinion, now as a retired Army Safety Specialist, North Las Vegas Airport needs to do a safety standdown and stop all operations… for a full day and gather all stakeholders, the FAA, the county, all flight schools, stop all operations, close this airport, and figure out how to prevent these accidents and renumber those runways,” Bradley argued.

FOX5 reached out to North Las Vegas Airport Officials about the safety concerns at the airport back in August and were referred to the FAA, who hosted the safety meeting.

The NTSB is now in charge of investigating Friday’s collision.

Aviation Audio Clips / Plane door falls off, lands in Nevada parking lot

HENDERSON, Nev. - The Federal Aviation Administration wants to know how a door fell off an aircraft and landed in a Nevada parking lot.

Christopher Wolverton of Henderson was the one who saw the door flying towards the ground on Nov. 18 and snapped photos once it landed.
"We were driving in the parking lot of the St. Rose shopping center after picking up our daughter’s glasses, when I saw the door fall from the sky, above and just beyond the Hobby Lobby there," he told FOX Television Stations.

The 40-year-old said he heard the plane going by but didn’t actually see the aircraft. "I stopped the car and exclaimed, ‘Oh my god! I think a door just fell from that plane!’" he continued. "My family thought I was seeing things."

"So on a lark, we drove around back to see if we could find where it landed, and there it was," he added.

Wolverton said witnesses then called in the incident to the nearby Henderson Executive Airport.

The FAA said the piece was a baggage compartment door belonging to a single-engine Textron T24. Authorities said the plane had departed from Henderson Executive Airport that morning.

"Only the pilot was on board," FAA said in a statement to FOX Television Stations. "No injuries or damage were reported on the ground."

FAA said the plane returned to the airport. The aircraft registration number is N240VB.
