Listener Forum / ACK Tower

ACK Tower audio almost unreadable since the volume is so low.

Two people have a lot to be thankful for this holiday after emerging unscathed when their single-engine aircraft was forced to make a controlled emergency landing in a pasture near the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area on Wednesday morning.

Lakeland Linder International Airport Director Kris Hallstrand said the pilot and passenger were uninjured.

The “aircraft emergency” was initially reported at 8:12 a.m. after the pilot radioed the tower to report engine problems and then disappeared from the radar. An assortment of sheriff’s deputies and fire rescue units from Lakeland and Polk County raced north, unsure exactly where the plane might have gone down and what they might find. Eventually, with the help of a drone, they got the coordinates — but accessing the scene was still tricky.
 At one point, a fire rescue unit sought guidance about whether to cut a barbed wire fence, worried that livestock might escape. Shortly after, the call came over the radio that the plane’s occupants were OK and a patrol unit had found a way to reach the site via JEH Road.

A photograph provided by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office shows the fixed-wing, single-engine Cessna Skyhawk — registered to MBK Leasing and Consulting — landed in a grassy pasture and was undamaged.
“They were unable to make it back to the airport, the tower lost radar contact with them out in that area and dispatched emergency services,” Hallstrand explained. “Once you get below tree level, you’re most likely going to lose communication with the tower — with air traffic control.”

Hallstrand said the plane went down off Rockridge Road, between JEH Road and Saddlewood Boulevard, south of the fork at Deen Still Road. The area is remote and is lined with cattle ranches and homes on several acres.
“I would not call it a crash — I would call it a controlled emergency landing, which pilots are trained to do,” Hallstrand said.

A flight plan shows the plane departed from Lakeland Linder at 7:42 a.m., headed to Zephyrhills.

The plane is owned by Mauricio Kelmann. He declined to comment on Wednesday, saying he preferred to wait until the National Transportation and Safety Board concludes its investigation.

“I will say everybody walked out without a scratch, thank God,” said Kelmann.

Pilot seemed a little standoffish.

The Gulfstream G150 aircraft, operating as Reynolds Jet flight RJE73, veered off the side of runway during landing on runway 15 and damaged signs and runway edge lights.
The aircraft suffered damage to the right wing.

Things that make you go hmmmmmm.......
Just thankful all ok.

The tower reported seeing sparks from the front of the aircraft on departure. The airplane circled the airport once and eventually returned to land on runway 15. The sparks were observed again during the landing roll. The post-flight inspection revealed that a tow bar on the runway that was still attached to the airplane.


PLANO ( — The pilot of a single-engine plane has died following a crash in a Plano shopping center parking lot Tuesday evening.

Plano Fire-Rescue officials were called to the crash a little before 6 p.m. in front of Mama's Daughters' Diner, located in Prestonwood Park off West Park Boulevard.

A customer at a neighboring nail salon said they heard a loud boom before realizing what happened just feet away from the business.

"When I came out there was a lot of smoke and later I heard a noise again," shared Kiu Nguyen. "It was so scary. Everybody came and saw a lot of smoke."

Officials said the plane did not land on or collide with anything; however, the fire did impact an unoccupied parked car.  According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the crash occurred north of Air Park-Dallas Airport but it is unknown if that is where it was heading.

No other information is available at this time, and both the FAA along with the National Transportation Safety Board will be handling the investigation.

Listener Forum / Re: KEWR Using Frequency 126.15
« Last post by RonR on November 21, 2023, 08:09:32 AM »
134.05 appears to be a secondary tower frequency for KEWR and 126.15 is a secondary ground frequency.  It seems to me to make more sense for them to switch over to the secondary ground frequency and not the secondary tower frequency.  But at this point 126.15 does not appear to be covered by a LiveATC feed; it may have been available in the past but I don't know for sure.

Do you have an information on what flight this was?

Thanks, Ron
