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:

Listen to the Pilot: in his voice you can hear the fear of death...

He yells 4x Mayday and you also can hear as he says something is wrong
Background noise: Scared skydivers 11 survived

Feed Outage/Status Reports / Re: LGIR moving to a different apartment

Moving can be quite an adventure, especially when it affects things like audio feeds. When I relocated to a new place last year, I had to adjust to all sorts of changes. It can take some time to settle in and figure out the new setup. Speaking of moving, if you ever need to transport your car to or from Florida, www.a1autotransport.com/florida-fl-car-shipping/ has some great options to check out.

New York ARINC still using 8825 and 8846 (north) and 11396 and 13297 (south) as the primary frequencies in the CAR/WATRS area during the day (13Z-23Z). This has been consistent over the last 10 days.

Aviation Audio Clips / Re: ECLIPSE AEROSPACE Lands in Boise with the towbar
« Last post by Rick108 on February 16, 2024, 08:27:03 AM »
I wonder how they were able to retract the gear with a towbar attached?  Seems like they would have noticed a problem shortly after takeoff, instead of after landing!  Wow!

Don't know  how, but somehow got in airborn in Caldwell, ID, flew to Boise with it attached.
In the clip, is the approach, and the landing, with the pilot commenting on some "noise" coming from the front.
Truck rolled, and toward the end of the clip, the Ops unit makes the discovery, glad it was a safe outcome, albiet a bit humorous.

AIRCRAFT LANDED WITH TOW BAR STILL ATTACHED TO FRONT GEAR, BOISE, ID.
