Aviation Audio Clips / Single Engine Piper Makes Emergency Landing on Long Island Highway
« Last post by RonR on February 20, 2024, 02:07:54 PM »
A single engine Piper had just performed a Touch and Go at Farmingdale's Republic Airport when the pilot reported an engine failure and said they were going to "put it down on the highway".  The aircraft landed on the eastbound side of Southern State Parkway at around exit 33 near Lindenhurst, NY at around 11:40AM.  The right wing appeared to have struck a light pole.  Another aircraft reported that the occupants appeared to have gotten out of the Piper on their own. 
Boston-bound flight from San Francisco forced to divert to Denver after plane's wing came apart

Looking for any audio now.

A passenger of a Boston-bound commercial flight made an unusual sighting when he looked out of the window and saw a wing of the plane falling apart midair.  Passenger Kevin Clarke said he boarded United Flight 354, a Boeing 757-200 that was departing out of San Francisco and took off on schedule but was told by the pilot that the plane would be forced to divert to Denver, Boston 25 News reported. Then, he saw the problem with his very own eyes. The slat of the plane's right wing was "coming apart" and missing noticeable chunks.

"I’m like bird strike? That’s not good," Clarke told the outlet. "We take off, I heard this loud buzzing noise, and then it faded away so I didn’t think much of it and all of a sudden the pilot is coming back, so I threw my window open, peeked out the window and the whole leading edge of the wing was destroyed."

He was also able to get his cell phone out and record the harrowing moment. "Just about to land in Denver with the wing coming apart on the plane," Clarke narrates in the cell phone video. "Came apart when we took off in San Francisco, and we’re just about on the ground. Can’t wait for this flight to be over."  Upon making the emergency landing in Denver, Clarke and the other 164 passengers of the United flight boarded a new plane.

Clarke ultimately landed at his final destination of Logan Airport about three hours later than scheduled, telling Boston 25 News he was just glad to be alive.

"First there was some panic, but the pilot had come back, looked at it, took some pictures of it, talked to the guys on the ground, said yup, proceed to Denver, shouldn’t be a problem," said Clarke. 
Listener Forum / who wants to be an inventor regarding ATC audio

Here is an interesting one.
as most of us know, United's channel 9 no longer exists, for the most part. live ATC and wifi only helps so much.
this is my thought process.
we find a way to create some kind of device where we could hear the ATC audio without getting caught. and we won't be interrupted when announcements are made.
there are so many times when i travel to the East coast and want to listen to my full flight. if you use a scanner, you will either get caught or won't work at all or both. it took me a long time before i got the courage to post this. any ideas?   
i will appreciate any insight.
have a great week.
Ameriflight 116 - Double Go-Around @ KBUR during early morning storm

Heard a plane just before 2a on the burbank departure (couldnt see anything as it was raining and low overcast) and thought it was a weird time for a departure.  Checked flight radar and saw this plane going around.  Started tracking it only to notice he went missed a second time.

Thought i'd share. 

First share btw.

It's odd enough one of your windows falls out while departing, but to be the one that finds it while landing, what are the odds?
kudos to DAB ATC/Ops, even providing delivery service.  :)

An American Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration N119US performing flight AA-1625 from Portland,OR to Phoenix,AZ (USA) with 156 people on board, was climbing out of Portland's runway 10R when the crew stopped the climb at 5000 feet reporting the #1 thrust reverser was indicated unlocked, they had shut the engine (CFM56) down. The aircraft returned to Portland for a safe landing on runway 10R about 30 minutes after departure, vacated the runway and stopped for a check of engine and brakes before continuing to the apron.

The flight was cancelled.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Portland 3 days later.
Aviation Audio Clips / Small plane lost power in crash north of Paine Field

Walked away without a scratch, amen !(pics in the link from the Story.)

The pilot reportedly called 911, stuck in a tree, on Friday. The sole occupant survived “without a scratch,” the president of Puget Sound Flyers said.

EVERETT — A small plane belonging to local flight club Puget Sound Flyers crashed in the woods north of Paine Field on Friday evening.

The pilot survived “without a scratch,” club president Richard Newman said Saturday. The cause of the crash appeared to be a mechanical issue that caused the plane to lose power, Newman said.

Around 5:30 p.m., multiple fire departments responded to a report that the plane, a Cessna 150, crashed about a half-mile north of the airport in the wooded Japanese Gulch area, near Mukilteo, said Paine Field spokesperson Kristin Banfield.

The pilot reportedly called 911, still stuck in a tree, according to emergency radio traffic.

According to FlightAware data, the plane left Paine Field at 3:57 p.m. on Friday. Before the crash, the plane made a 135-mile trip, making a rapid descent around 4:40 p.m. at William R. Fairchild International Airport in Port Angeles, then looping back across Puget Sound. The plane began another descent above Whidbey Island, but did not make it very far past downtown Mukilteo, en route to Paine Field.

FAA data shows the fixed-wing single-engine plane was based in Everett, with its first airworthiness certificate issued in 1975. The certificate was renewed in 2021, with an expiration date in 2028. The plane used a Continental 0-200 Series engine.

The aircraft was caught “deep in the thickets,” so recovery will be challenging, Newman said.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration were advised about the crash, according to Paine Field. Once the NTSB completes its investigation, authorities will work with the plane’s owner to recover the Cessna, the fire department reported.

Puget Sound Flyers launched in 2013 as a nonprofit “offering recreational flyers the chance to have fun, keep flying and get the best value in flying in the Northwest,” according to the club’s website. The group has “helped many people earn their wings to fly and has grown to a fleet of 4 aircraft for flight club members to enjoy the Pacific Northwest from above.”

Newman said the NTSB was on site Friday night and Saturday morning and was “already wrapping up their investigation.”

“It was really no more than a fender bender,” he said.
yes they jumped just before the crash. I listen to the voice recordings and my conculusion is, that there are other pax how can be heard screaming "mayday"
Its a Hypothesis that a parachute was opened in the plane and the parachute got tangeld in the tailwing.
About the background noise, it is also possible the skydivers already jumped. So maybe only the pilot was saying multiple times "mayday" & screaming.

RIP :cry:
