Teesside accident

Three people injured, one seriously, in a light aircraft accident at MME this morning, resulting in the airport being closed for several hours. AAIB en route.

Photos look like a Grumman American AA-5 Traveler.

The BBC report mentions loss of power on take off.

County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service general manager Rob Cherrie, said the light aircraft "had taken off then come back down again very quickly" and fire crews had been "forced to cut the three people out of the plane".

Reliable as usual

And, sorry for perhaps sounding pecky, but isn't it Teesside or even Tees Side rather than Teeside? That last sounds like a term from tennis or cricket.

Also: with the plane destroyed, and all three occupants in hospital, wouldn't "accident" be a more proper description than "incident"? The good point being of course that all three survived.

Daily Mail. Also said engine stopped but that line didn't copy.
"A witness told TeessideLive: 'I heard the plane engine start to sputter, then looked up to see it bank left sharply.

'It looked like the pilot managed to keep the plane fairly level as it started to come down, but then it just dropped rapidly, then I heard a thud behind the tree line."
Spin following loss of power?

Broke two golden rules - turned back and stretched the glide?

We are all "experts" at this point.

The skipper was a friend of a friend. We are a close aviation community here.

Let's just wait, and pray for healing for the injured.

EFATO are fortunately rare events but they do need to be practiced during any check out with a FI.
Keeping a safe speed to the flare point is critical.
The difficulty comes when the loss of power takes you by surprise and you are not mentally prepared to react in a timely manner.

I have deleted a number of posts which really were not on topic for a GA single accident, and had little relevance to the recent event. Sure, discuss older accidents, but perhaps on a more general thread. Most GA PPLs would not be familiar with two crew larger airplane takeoff drills nor systems. Discussion welcome, but let's stay fairly close to topic....
