EI-ING, Cessna F172P Skyhawk, Airport Flying Club

Incident/Accident Date: 2018-08-04

Report No: 2020-015, Published: 2020-09-07

The Cessna F172P aircraft, with one Pilot and two passengers on board, had just flown from Weston Airport, Co. Dublin, to Craughwell Airfield, Co. Galway, where the landing on Runway 34 was fast and long. Upon realising that there was a stone wall located just beyond the end of the runway at the airfield boundary, and that the aircraft was not going to stop in the distance remaining, the Pilot applied engine power and took-off again. The aircraft marginally cleared the boundary wall, briefly climbed and travelled over the field immediately beyond the boundary wall. It then lost altitude, drifted left, and struck a tree at the far boundary of the field, before impacting with the ground and coming to rest. The three occupants evacuated the aircraft with some difficulty and the emergency services brought them to hospital for assessment. There was no fire.

After a take-off from Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, the aircraft Commander called for ‘gear-up’. During gear retraction, the Flight Crew heard an unusual noise. This was followed by the aircraft rolling to the left, and the illumination of the left-hand landing gear red and green indication lights. The Flight Crew completed the ‘GEAR DISAGREE’ checklist and elected to return to Frankfurt-Hahn. The aircraft landed normally, but as a precautionary measure the Airport Rescue and Firefighting Service attended the aircraft. The aircraft taxied to a parking stand where they were informed by Air Traffic Control (ATC) that a small, metallic piece from the aircraft had been found on the runway. Damage to the upper surface of the left wing was observed by the Crew and passengers. No injuries were reported to the Investigation. There was no fire.

The aircraft, a BRM Land Africa, was on its final approach to Runway (RWY) 25 at Letterkenny Airfield (EILT) when it veered to the left in crosswind conditions prompting the Pilot to attempt a go-around. The left wing struck the ground. The aircraft pivoted about the wing tip and impacted nose first into a boundary fence and ditch on the southern side of RWY 25. The Pilot was uninjured and exited the aircraft unaided. The aircraft sustained substantial damage. There was no fire.

During an attempted take-off from an agricultural field near Bellharbour, Co. Clare, directional control of the "TrikeBuggy Bullet" paramotor was lost, resulting in it colliding with a dry stone wall at the south-western perimeter of the field.

At 16.30 hrs on 7 July 2019, the aircraft departed Shannon Airport (EINN) with two pilots, one cabin attendant and one passenger on board. Approximately 15 minutes after take-off, while climbing through Flight Level (FL) 290, an amber 'L [Left] ENGINE MAINTENANCE' message appeared on the Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS). This was quickly followed by an Electronic Engine Controller (EEC) commanded shutdown of the left-hand engine with an associated red 'L ENGINE FAIL' message on the EICAS. The right-hand engine reverted to an alternate control mode. The Pilots declared a PAN, which was later upgraded to a MAYDAY, and diverted back to EINN where they landed safely. The crew and passenger disembarked normally. There were no injuries.
 
 

D-EFJG, Bolkow Bo-209 Monsun, Private

Incident/Accident Date: 2019-05-14

Report No: 2020-010, Published: 2020-06-22

Image by: AAIU Report

 
The Bolkow Bo-209 Monsun aircraft, which was fitted with a retractable nose landing gear, took-off from Runway 09 at Navan Airfield (EIHH) with two occupants on board. The nose landing gear was retracted after take-off, as normal. Following one circuit of the airfield, a landing on the same runway was carried out. During the landing roll, the propeller and the lower engine cowling made contact with the surface of the grass runway, as the nose landing gear had not been extended prior to landing. The aircraft's propeller and engine cowlings sustained damage. The two occupants were uninjured and exited the aircraft unaided. There was no fire.
