Aviation News (General) / Russian Fighter Jet and US Drone Tangle Over the Black Sea

Two men walked away from an emergency landing at about 11:15 a.m. today at Bryden Canyon Golf Course after the aircraft they were flying lost power when it was taking off from the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional Airport.

The pilot, JR Luper, is a Lewiston flight instructor who was conducting a lesson in the area for a student, said Lewiston Airport Director Mike Isaacs, at the scene.

The student was Jeff Uhlenkott, 52, of Grangeville.

“(Luper) tried initially to land back on the (airport) and knew he wouldn’t have the altitude, so he ended up picking the field here at the golf course,” Isaacs said. “... He wasn’t high enough to turn back.”The only damage to the aircraft or property happened when a wing tip of the single-engine Cessna 172 hit a tree limb, he said.

“They did a great job,” Isaacs said. “We’re just very fortunate no one was injured. (Luper) is a very skilled pilot with lots of flight time. That probably attributed to the relatively uneventful emergency landing.”Luper and the student were met by emergency crews from the Lewiston Fire Department, Lewiston Police Department and the airport.

The student, who had taken eight to 10 lessons, is willing to go again, said Luper, who began flying in the 1970s and has been an instructor for a decade.“You train for it all the time,” Luper said. “You train students that if something does go wrong, there’s tools to deal with it.”

The fairway where the plane landed was at the golf course's 11th hole, which was closed for about one hour, said Thomas Flowers, an employee of the golf course’s pro shop.

O’Connor Road that runs between the golf course and airport was also closed briefly this afternoon while the aircraft was returned to the airport on a trailer after, Isaacs said, it was cleared to be removed by the National Transportation Safety Board.

Matt Mosman, owner of Frontier Aviation, a business at the Lewiston airport, said the plane belongs to him.

Like Isaacs, he had praise for Luper.

“In my mind, it could have been a whole lot worse if (Luper) hadn’t been behind the yoke of that aircraft,” Mosman said. “I don’t know what would have happened.”The NTSB and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the accident, according to a news release from the airport.


Law enforcement responded Sunday to the Burlington International Airport in Vermont.

South Burlington police confirmed they were assisting Burlington police with a "Phase 5" at the airport, the highest emergency alert in these situations.
NBC affiliate WPTZ reports the Vermont State Police bomb squad responded to the airport, at the request of the Burlington Police Department, to investigate an "unlawful threat" on a plane.

Police said the threat was made on United Airlines flight 3613, which took off from Newark, New Jersey, at 3:14 p.m. Sunday and was bound for Burlington. Officials said about 20 minutes before landing in Burlington, the pilot was made aware of a threat that was found inside of a bathroom on the plane.

The pilot notified Air Traffic Control officers, prompting the large emergency response.

The flight landed in Burlington around 4:30 p.m. Sunday and was taken to a specific area on the tarmac.

LocalWPTZ anchor Alice Kang said on social media that she was on board the United plane and that she had been stuck on the plane for almost two hours, with several police and emergency crews out on the runway.

In subsequent tweets, Kang reported that the pilot told passengers they were not allowed to take anything from the aircraft's overhead bins, as they were only allowed to remove their phones and IDs as they got off the plane.

According to Kang, there was a note found with a threat, and police K-9's were being used to sweep the plane to look for a possible device.

"A man was arrested Sunday in Massachusetts for allegedly attempting to stab a flight attendant with a spoon after trying to open the emergency exit on a trip to Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for Massachusetts..."

"That flight attendant confronted Torres, who allegedly asked if there were cameras that could confirm the allegations. Shortly after, Torres allegedly approached two flight attendants who were standing near the side door and lunged at one of them, hitting them on the neck with a broken metal spoon three times, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office..."

"Several passengers and members of the flight crew tackled Torres and detained him. He was arrested at the Boston Logan International Airport after the flight landed, the U.S. Attorney's Office said."
