    Lightbulb It can happen anywhere

    An airplane crashed into a house in Cut n' Shoot, Texas this afternoon. That is definitely proof that anything can happen anywhere, even to small vollie departments. The wierd part is though it's not the first time that's happened...

    How about some details on the incident, such as the type of aircraft, the number of souls on board, injuries/fatalities, department response, mutual aid, distance from the airport, weather conditions, etc?

    We just responded to a plane crash on Saturday night. I am not sure what type of plane it was, but it can carry 30 people. It is used at a sky diving place (Aerohio) here in our little town. The only two people left in the plane were the pilot and co pilot. From what I understand they tried to make a landing and caught their right wing on the ground the went nose first into a field. Both people survived... My pt was the worst hurt with a fractured arm... and of course a little shock thrown in.

    Capt & 77 I saw this breifly on the news last night.

    NUtshell, : small plane 2 seater (? Cesna type). Crashed into house in TX causeing large fire, Pilot killed on impact, rumors of a student pilot also, not confrimed (as of 2200 last night)

    News showed the house fully engulfed with flames. I shall browse some more for more intelligent details.



    * after further review, I want even close on the plane type. It was a Beech 76 Duchess twin engine.

    "The pilot was identified as Masayuki Shiokawa, 32, of Conroe. Department of Public Safety Sgt. Jovon Reed said Shiokawa was an instructor for MVP Aero Academy, a pilot school in Montgomery County."

    Most of the eastern and northern Montgomery County departments responded. It was a Duchess.

    Beech aircaft, a Raytheon Company, does no have a model called the Duchess. The news media got it wrong. This is more than likely the aircraft that went down.. the Beech Baron 58. This twin engined aircraft has a max takeoff weight of 5500 pounds and carries 1954 gallons of fuel. It can carry 4 to 5 passengers.

    Any department could be called for an aircraft crash. Just ask the brothers in the small department in PA what happened on 9-11.

    Here in southwest Michigan, west bound commercial aircraft headed for ORD get their final landing instructions as they cross the omni just south of town. They also "stack" aircraft over us when there are delays at ORD.

    We have discussed and done some training sessions on how to handle a crash and what mutual aid would be required. It helps that the county emergency management director is a private pilot and knows FAA and NTSB procedures.

    Stay safe,

    Default Hate to tell you this cap, but

    Beech aircaft, a Raytheon Company, does no have a model called the Duchess
    They haven't built one in close to 25 years, but there was a Beechcraft Model called the Duchess. It is a mid-70s design.

    If anyone is just filled with a desire to know when and where airplanes crash, check out the NTSB's Aviation Accident Database . You can search for and read about any aviation accident since 1982.

    Thank you... I stand corrected.
