Two Killed in Atchison Plane Crash in Historic Aircraft

An aerobatic pilot who had performed at the Amelia Earhart festival and the general manager of the Amelia Earhart Airport are both dead after a plane crash in Atchison occurred the day following the festival. The pilot and sole passenger were in a World War II-era plane and had been in the air for less than half an hour when the crash happened, highlighting the risks that passengers in small planes sometimes face.

Six Dead in Wisconsin Small Plane Crash

Six men have died in a Wisconsin small plane crash, leaving authorities to investigate what could have caused the July 1 tragedy. Although little information about the crash has been released, officials have confirmed that the pilot was talking with air traffic controllers about a "local weather phenomenon" just prior to the crash. As they investigate, officials will look into weather, pilot error and mechanical issues as possible factors in the plane crash.

Passengers Alert United Airlines to Fuel Leak

Two passengers flying on United Airlines Flight 170 from Newark, New Jersey, to Venice may have averted catastrophe when they warned the crew about a fuel leak. Despite their heroic efforts, the passengers say United treated them poorly, and they will never fly the airline again. Although there are many safety precautions in place to protect passengers from an airline disaster, sometimes safety comes down to one or two alert people, who notice that something isn't right and say something about it.

One Person Killed in Fort Myers Plane Crash

One person was killed and another person suffered serious injuries when a small plane crashed into an empty building in Fort Myers, Florida, on Saturday, June 24 at around 7:45 a.m. The plane reportedly crashed shortly after takeoff from nearby Page Field. The crash resulted in other planes diverting their flight path north of the accident scene while investigators examined the wreckage. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is now investigating the crash and will consider numerous potential factors in the plane crash, including aircraft maintenance, weather and human error.

Small Plane Crash Kills Calabasas Father and Son

A California personal plane crash has taken the lives of a father and son from Calabasas. The small plane crash occurred on Sunday, June 4, 2017, at around 4:00 p.m. on a private property near Thousand Oaks, Californ ia. Killed in the crash were a 57-year-old man and his 15-year-old son. Both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are investigating the cause of the plane crash, though it is very rarely one factor alone that causes a plane to crash.

Two Separate Alaska Plane Crashes Kill Four

Two separate Alaska plane crashes that happened at almost the exact same time have taken the lives of four people. The crashes occurred on Saturday, May 27, at around 11:00 a.m., but happened about 600 miles apart. Four people died in total and a fifth person was injured in the tragedies. Authorities are now investigating what caused the two small planes to crash.

Hopkinsville Plane Crash May Have Been Caused by Bad Weather

A couple from Bettendorf, Iowa was killed in a May 12, 2017 plane crash in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. The married couple was on their way to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, when the plane went down. They were the only two people on board during the small plane crash. First responders on the scene discovered widespread debris and witnesses said it seemed clear that no one on board could have lived through the accident.

Amarillo Plane Crash Kills Three

Three people have died in an Amarillo plane crash that took place on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The crash happened in early morning as an air ambulance service left the airport in Amarillo, Texas, headed for Clovis, New Mexico. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration are both investigating the cause of the crash. According to reports, the small plane took off in severe weather, which is often just one of many factors involved in a plane crash.

Severe Turbulence Causes Serious Injuries on Aeroflot Flight

Passengers aboard an Aeroflot flight from Moscow were left with serious injuries after their plane encountered heavy turbulence about an hour before they were scheduled to land in Bangkok on May 1. Among those who were reportedly harmed were three babies who were injured when the heavy turbulence caused them to be thrown from their mothers' arms. Although heavy turbulence like that experienced in the Boeing 777 aircraft is rare, turbulence can cause catastrophic injuries to aircraft passengers.

NTSB: Disorientation Led to Fatal Plane Crash

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued its report into a fatal 2015 plane crash that killed nine people, finding that the pilot was under pressure from his company to return his passengers to a cruise ship, which led to him becoming disoriented in cloudy weather. Investigators blamed both the pilot's disorientation and the company's culture for the tragedy, which occurred on June 25, 2015.
