An airliner crash in 1962 with the hallmarks of veering left, Airplane crash at Orly Field

Quote

Immediately, the Air France pilot tried to lower the speed through braking. The tires evaporated as he began to raise his flaps to decrease his speed (braking by itself would not have stopped the aircraft). The plane angled slightly to the left but skill kept the hurtling aircraft on runway. Then came a harder move to the left as the Boeing jet approached the edge of the pavement. The plane twisted right as the struggling pilot tried to gain control of the aircraft, possibly attempting a maneuver know as a "ground loop" during the rapid deceleration.


The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Pilot reported engine trouble before plane crash killed two in Kansas City

Quote

“It turned like it was going back for a landing,” said Smith, a Kansas City resident.

He said he saw the plane’s wheels but heard its engines go quiet. It then crossed back north over the Missouri River heading for the runway.

“It just dropped,” Smith said. “There was no smoke, no boom, no fire.”

Charles Hamilton said he heard an airplane sputter as he drove north on the Broadway Bridge just after 2:30 p.m. Hamilton looked in his rear view mirror and saw the single-engine plane near the Wheeler Airport. Minutes later, Hamilton said he arrived in Riverside and heard media reports that the plane had crashed.

Exclusive: Survivor of float plane crash near Tofino recounts terrifying accident

Quote

It was when the plane was over the peninsula that it started to go down.

“We started to go down, and the pilot said, ‘Mayday we are going down,’ I saw a tree looming and the wing must have hit the tree.”

I thought that a twin engined aircraft should still be able to maintain altitude if one engine failed. I sounds like a 'bad force' was sucking the plane down as well, just like in the Bali crash as well as others.

'Damn good pilot' hailed in safe Yellowknife plane crash landing

Quote

"Honest to God, we were cutting the trees,” he said.

“I mean he was able to take the tops off a few trees and fly it into a clear field. Had we hit the trees, had we gone totally into the trees, it would've been game over and he just missed the wires by inches. Some great force was with us; well, a damn good pilot but I'll give it a damn good pilot and a good force."

The plane didn't quite make it and landed hard on its belly in a ditch about a hundred metres from the runway, with its landing gear still up.

Golfers Spring into Action after Plane Crash Near Sac Executive Airport

Quote

SACRAMENTO—

Take a close look at this single engine plane crashed after taking off from the Sacramento Executive Airport. It’s hard to imagine that anyone walked away accident alive, but they did.

Golfers here at Bing Maloney Golf Course heard trouble in the air.

“The engine cut out, died, started back up again [and] cut out again,” said golfer Tyson Hartle.

Then, at 6:28 p.m., a rented Piper PA-28 crashed into the trees between holes two and seven.

“I looked up and the plane was banking to my left around behind me and on the seventh fairway here, and came down through the trees and hit the ground upside down,” said Hartle.

Hartle swung into action and found two men inside alive, but hurt.

Even more: One day, one county, two plane crashes, no fatalities

Quote

It's not often that two planes crash in Kern County on the same day in different locations.
But it happened Saturday. And as bad as it sounds, it could have been much worse.
Two men in a light, homemade aircraft walked away from a crash in the early afternoon after the plane they were flying in lost power and took out a set of electrical lines southwest of Bakersfield.

Units from the Kern County Fire Department, California Highway Patrol and Kern County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a plane down near Bear Mountain Boulevard, about one-quarter mile east of Old River Road.

At the scene, a long section of power lines had been pulled loose and yanked some 60 feet south into a corn field. Hours after the crash the plane was still in the corn field, but was not visible from the road.

Even as fire crews were mopping up at the scene southwest of Bakersfield, the Kern County Fire Department was called to the scene of a second plane crash near Tehachapi.

Fortunately, it appears neither crash resulted in major injuries or deaths.

Fire department spokesman Davis said it appears a private plane carrying a pilot and two passengers "went nose-in" in a large field behind a house, approximately one mile southwest of Mountain Valley Airport, which is located southeast of Tehachapi's business district.
