    Why would the pilot not check the coolant level?

    And also, I see that in making he emergency landing, when the left wing started to go down, he used the aileron instead of the rudder to bring up the wing.

    I think the pilot should have urged the stick forward, at the moment of power loss.

    That was what my instructor used to drill into my hard head. When the engine starts doing anything out of the ordinary ... get that stick forward!

    In such a light aircraft there isn't very much momentum and some hesitation is bound to happen as your mouth fills up with cotton and your mind says, "this can't be really happening!" Getting the nose down quickly would have given enough airspeed to have energy to flare once back in ground effect as there was plenty of runway ahead.

    But ... Monday evening quarterbacking is easy ...

    I thought it was a good overview of what not to do to a two-stroke.

    Re: Crashes in the News - Thread

    The expressway ramp landing reminds me of the time I landed on a frozen lake to take a leak (Cold day, open cockpit Baby Ace). The lake was a part of the Detroit Metropolitan Park System which does not allow aircraft operations. Being a public park it had open restrooms and an adequate quantity of trees. I did not recall that my dad was denied access to another part of the park system 70 miles away 20 years earlier. As I returned to the airplane I saw the flashing beacon on the police car and the officer walking across the ice towards the plane.

    When he asked if I had a problem I said yes. When asked what the problem was. I indicated that I thought the oil temp was indicating a little high but that is should be cooled down my now. A quick check confirmed the oil temp was ok so he said it would be ok to depart but don't come back.

    I always thought it strange when the OAT is cold (Polar Vortex) and the aircraft overheats. Wonder what he was doing in the 7/11.

    I have several more stories about the Detroit Metropolitan Park System and aircraft not that anyone cares. The best Detroit story has to do with the shootout* between Detroit Police and the Wayne County Sheriff officers. Nothing to do with aircraft though. I wish more people knew about that one. (Several dead and some executed). There are reasons why the city is bankrupt and no one wants to live there. Best decision (ADM) I ever made may have been to leave the area.

    * I tried to Google it but the are too many police shootings to search through and it was so long ago (probably 1958) it is largely forgotten.
    The most elegant theory can never change reality but even a mediocre theory can predict reality most of the time.

    The pilot keep his head, landed on the ramp missing all the light post and signs. No damage to the aircraft and after fixing the leaking coolant line, was able to take off again.

    Heartbreaking to see this happen in a neighborhood. Hope this is not the beginning of the end for this airport.

    $20 bucks say a loose turbocharger clamp and a fire that took a wing off.

    That is what my boss concluded. Very sad and I'm not watching the video. God bless them. Not good for Cessna 400 series owners as Cessna is trying to AD it out of existence so they don't have to support it. Just another arrow for Cessna.

    What a noise it made before going silent! I don't really know much about turbocharged aero engines but wouldn't the prop governor keep that RPM in check?

    Not too far from where I am. No reason given for the crash and the registration is not confirmed.

    Good to know there were no injuries ...
