    1950 So Cal Nevada B-25 Accident
    The 1950 So Cal Nevada Interstate accident occurred when an ex-USAF B-25 crashed while on approach to the So Cal Airport following an engine failure. All 6 crew members were killed. The aircraft was completing its last test flight before joining Air Metro - Nevada.

    - Details :
    The aircraft, a North American B-25 Mitchell, departed the So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport for a local test flight around the area. The aircraft was operated by the United States Air Force during the second world war, and it upgraded to a civilian plane. It was one of the many B-25s that were purchased by Air Metro.
    The crew consisted of two pilots, the Captain, who had over 10.000 flight hours, and the First Officer, who was also experienced, with over 6000 flight hours. Also included were the navigator, whose seat was located in the nose section, the flight engineer, who had 2000 flight hours, and was preparing to be First Officer with Air Metro after this flight.
    There were also two Air Metro aircraft engineers, seated in the tail section.
    The aircraft departed with no problems, the crew completed the entire test flight in one hour. The Captain decided to conduct a high altitude circling approach which the other crew members agreed to.

    (Computer generated photo shows the high speed circling approach that the Captain decided to conduct)

    - Approach :
    The aircraft was cleared to approach by the ATC, weather conditions were perfect at the time (calm wind, sunny day...etc), and everything seemed perfect for the Captain.
    Suddenly, while flying over the sunken highway, the aircraft a dual engine failure, the Captain sent the following transmission:
    "NA B-25 we have an engine failure, we're goin around".
    The aircraft was observed making a very high pitching go around, with the wings rocking side to side, before it entered a descending right bank.

    (The descending right bank)

    The crew were unable to pull out of the descending dive, and the plane impacted terrain just a few meters from the runway end, near the intersection leading to the highway.
    The aircraft was completely destroyed and all 6 occupants were fatally injured.


    Site : 0.1 km S of So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV, USA
    Summary : Engine failure, pilot error during the subsequent go-around
    Aircraft Type : North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator : Air Metro on behalf of USAF
    Registration : N99439X
    Crew : 4
    Passengers : 2
    Survivors : 0 (1 Initially)
    Fatalities : 6 (all)
    Injures : --
    Phase : Approach
    Nature : Test
    Departure Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV, USA
    Destination Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV, USA
    Damage : Destroyed

    - Cause :
    The Civil Aviation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the accident as the following:
    • The Captain failure to maintain speed and control while conducting a low speed go-around following a dual engine failure. The dual engine failure happened when the radial engine's crankshafts stopped due to metal fatigue.
    Contributing factors:

    • The Captain failure to retract the landing gears during the attempted go-around, which resulted in higher drag forces to the aircraft.
    • The First Officer failure to assist his Captain during the emergency situation.
    • The crew's agreement to conduct the high altitude approach.
    • The failure of multiple aircraft engineers to inspect the engines crankshafts.

    Nature : Cargo
    Departure Airport : Unknown Airport, California
    Destination Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV, USA
    Damage : Destroyed
    Narrative :
    The B-25 was approaching the So Cal Airport in heavy fog, the pilots had never flown to this airport. On short final, the right wing struck a light pole located a few meters away from the end of the runway. The pilots managed to pitch the aircraft and turn it to the direction of the runway, but they eventually lost control and the plane impacted the terrain near the runway in a nose down altitude. The aircraft was destroyed and the three occupants on board were fatally injured.

    - Cause :
    • The crew's lack of experience with the route and approach phase to the destination airport, which resulted in a wing strike and subsequent loss of control. Contributing factors were the heavy fog at the time of the accident and the lack of new technology onboard the aircraft.

    The departed Salt Lake International to fly around Utah, there were 3 crew members and 1 passenger on board. The plane was being tested before participating in an air show scheduled for next week. Low clouds and heavy rain was present in Utah that day.
    After completing several manoevuers, the plane flew straight into a hill located under a bridge, not far from the Utah Motel.
    The investigation couldn't determine what caused the plane to fly into the hill, despite the heavy rain and low clouds, VFR flying was possible in the area. Many theories were discussed, such as a failed low past under the bridge (which was impossible), or a malfunctioning control surface, but nothing of this was confirmed.

    - Cause:
    • "The continued controlled flight into a hill for undetermined reasons."

    Damage: Small Damage

    On January 5th,1964, A Private Cessna L-19 (Registered L920MA) was flying over Fairbanks North Star Borough in Alaska with a Destination of Mammoth Valley Regional Airport in Mammoth Valley Borough. On Board is a Pilot and a Passenger. The Pilot was Dennis Blanchard,27 with 13 Hours flying in his Cessna, the Passenger was Dennis's Cousin Todd Cherry,10 The Two are flying to See Relatives in Mammoth Valley. A Snowstorm broke out in the area causing Pilot Blanchard to be confused which direction he is flying and try to find to contact Any Airfields Nearby but to no avail. In the fog Blanchard is flying low and Cherry Tells Blanchard there is a frozen lake and try to land there. Blanchard Aims low to try not get a crack in the lake but does a hard landing doing small damage to the plane. The Plane can't stop in time and crashes into a tree doing minor damage to the plane and injuring Pilot Blanchard. Todd Leaves the plane and waits for helps in the cold and shoots the flare gun the duo brought with each other. 20 Minutes after the first shot was fired, some of the nearby town residents found the two and the plane. Both occupants were brought in the Town's Doctor's Office for massive blood lose and hypothermia with only Blanchard having injuries. The Plane was restored,fixed and able to fly again. The Plane is currently on display at the Alaska Aviation Museum in Anchorage

    The Reason the Engine Failed was because snow went into the engine compartment of the Cessna and messed up the engine causing it to stop.

    Axel Leasing LLC FL 97
    Axel Leasing LLC Flight 97 was a domestic non scheduled passenger flight from Reno International Airport, NV, to the So Cal Nevada Airport, NV, that was chartered by a local building company to transport several construction workers in the So Cal area to build a hotel.
    On May 5th, 1979, while flying at low altitude in a holding pattern, the aircraft entered a sudden right roll until it impacted terrain in an inverted position. All 4 crew members and 4 passengers from the 10 on board perished.

    - Flight History :
    Axel Leasing LLC was a company that leased several aircraft to local companies in the Nevada/Utah area, the company had several mid sized twin engine planes, one of those planes were 4 WW2 era North American B-25 bombers that were converted to civilian use, the planes were maintained and they were set to retire in the 1980s.
    In early May, 1979, HOL Constructions, a local building company in Nevada, asked Axel Leasing to use all the four B-25s to transport their workers from Reno to the So Cal, Axel Leasing agreed and flights started from May 1st, 1979.
    Flight 97 was a set to fly from Reno to the So Cal on May 5th, 1979, and it was the last flight for the transporting deal. The plane departed from Reno International in the early hours of May 5th (a few hours after 12 p.m.). The aircraft was occupied by 4 crew members and 10 passengers. The plane was fueled to the half. Which was perfect for the flight time.
    The plane started its initial approach to the So Cal at about 4:31 AM, there were 3 aircraft flying ahead of FL97, one of them was a domestic Air Metro Convair CV-440 and the other two were some small general aviation aircraft. Behind FL97 was an Air Metro CASA C-212 Aviocar operating a domestic scheduled flight from Salt Lake, UT, to So Cal.
    - Occupants :

    • The Captain of the flight, aged 59, held a twin engine pilot license and a private license for more than 30 years. His logbook suggested he had over 12500 flying hours time, more than half of them were in twin engine aircraft. He was described by other airline pilots as "a professional relaxed pilot".

    • The First Officer, aged 39, held a twin engine aircraft pilot license, a commercial pilot license, and a private license, he started his training between the ages of 17 to 20. His logbook suggested he had 6740 hours, about 90% of them were in twin engine aircraft.

    • The Flight engineer, aged 31, was training to become a first officer for the company, his last logbook check reported that he had logged about 1600 flying hours.

    • There was an extra training pilot, aged 24, seated in the nose of the plane, his mission was to confirm the ahead terrain visually. His last logbook check suggested he had under 1000 hours.
    There were 10 passengers on board, they were all seated in the mid and tail section.

    - Weather :
    The weather conditions during the approach phase were described as "a bit cloudy and sunny". Winds were at 4 knots to the North, fog and rain were not present in the area of the accident, and it was a perfect day for flying aircraft.
    - Approach :
    The aircraft entered a holding pattern to the airport behind an Air Metro Convair CV-44 and ahead of an Air Metro Casa C-212, the aircraft was flying in a South direction, but it not landed at the runway due to present GA planes there, the Air Metro plane ahead of FL97 turned to the East to complete its circling approach and land, the B-25 flew in a straight line heading South, and the Air Metro plane flying behind it followed the B-25.
    The crew of the Air Metro plane observed the B-25 entering a sudden right bank, the plane did not recover and it kept descending until it impacted terrain in an inverted position, the Convair landed safely by the time the B-25 struck the ground, and the C-212 abandoned the approach and conducted a go-around. The airport was shut down for a few hours after the C-212 landed, the pilot of the C-212 described the accident as "sudden and fast". He said "It felt like someone dragged the right wing and threw the plane to the ground".

    - ATC :
    ATC : Air Traffic Controller / FL97 : Captain of flight 97, who was handling communications / FL507 : The Air Metro C-212 that was flying behind FL97 / Air Metro 922 : The ahead Conviar CV-440

    • ATC : Axel FL97, maintain speed and altitude, heading 180.
    • FL97 : Axel 97, roger that, maintaining level.
    • ATC : Air Metro 507, maintain level and follow Axel 97.
    • ATC : Air Metro 922, you are cleared to land.
    • FL507 : Woah, Axel just toke a dive to the ground.
    • FL507 : Mayday mayday, Axel 97 just struck the ground.
    • ATC : Axel 97 do you read? (voice in the background: I think we lost'em)
    • FL507 : Air Metro 507, we're goin around.

    - Crash :
    The plane struck a ridge right next to the airport in a nose-down inverted position. All four crew members and four passengers who were seated in the mid section perished. The remaining 6 passengers survived, 4 of them were seriously injured, and the two others received minor injures.
    There was a little post impact fire in the wings area that was put out quickly by the first responders.
    Emergency services and investigators arrived shortly after the crash, news helicopters were banned from flying in the area until rescue operations are finished.
    The investigators conducted a two day on scene investigation before moving major parts of the wreckage to the airport. The aircraft was equipped with a cockpit voice recorder, but there wasn't a flight data recorder. The NTSB workers in WA toke a few months to recover all data from the CVR.

    Summary: Loss of Control due to Aileron Jamming
    Aircraft Type: North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator: Axel Leasing LLC
    Registration: N8834X
    Crew: 4
    Passengers: 10
    Survivor: 6
    Fatalities: 8
    Injuries (Non Fatal): 4 (serious) / 2 (minor)
    Phase: Approach
    Nature: Domestic Non Scheduled Passenger (Charter)
    Departure Airport: Reno International Airport, NV
    Destination Airport: So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV
    Damage: Destroyed
    Flight number : 97

    - Investigation :
    The NTSB published a preliminary report in a week, nothing out of the ordinary was reported, and the report did not shed light on what the NTSB were focusing on.
    The NTSB investigator in charge determined that weather at the time of the accident did not play any role in the accident, a turbulence theory was discussed, but after deep studying of the available information, it was determined that the planes flying in the holding pattern were in a safe distance from each other.

    The investigators determined that the plane impacted terrain in a Southern heading at an angle of 46 ° in an inverted position. All major airplane components were accounted for at the accident site, the nose and cockpit section were crushed, the front section from the mid fuselage was crushed, the tail section separated on impact and all control surfaces detached from the tail assembly. Both engines were destroyed by the a small post crash fire, examination of the engines revealed they were working at the time of the accident. Both propellers were damaged and they detached from the engine. Both wings separated from the main fuselage, the large wing tips parts from both sides separated from the wing, but they were still next to it. Both ailerons were partially destroyed along side the left flaps, the right wing flaps survived, examination of them revealed they were in the correct position for approach.
    A deep examination of the right wing ailerons showed that the right wing aileron cables jammed, the crew were using the right aileron at the time, this caused a high speed right roll/bank and descent.
    It was determined that it was impossible to recover from the situation when the aileron jammed.
    Examination of all landing gears showed that they were not deployed at the time of the accident.

    (Recovered wreckage at the So Cal Airport)
    - Other :
    The medical examiner determined that all crew members died from "injures due to a plane crash". A toxicology report showed that all pilots were fit to fly and they did not have any sort of drugs in their systems.
    The medical examiner also determined that the passengers were killed due to "injures sustained during a plane crash". It was determined that the fatally injured passengers died on the spot.

    - Probable Cause :
    Based on the available evidence, eyewitnesses accounts, ATC recordings, and CVR tapes, the National Transportation Safety Board Determines that the probable cause of the accident involving Flight 97 as the following:

    • The jamming of the right aileron control cables while flying in a holding pattern, which resulted in an uncontrolled right bank and impact with terrain. The exact cause of the jamming could not be determined, but it is possible that continued stressing of the aileron system caused the sudden jamming.

    Passenger involvement-
    Two men boarding Flight 1758 raised suspicion in the immediate aftermath of the disappearance, the passports, 1 Japanese and 1 Malagasy had been reported stolen in South Africa, the Japanese Passport was reported stolen in 1991 while the Malagasy Passport was reported stolen in 1993, Interpol stated both passports were listed on SLTD Database, one way ticket purchased for the holders of the two passports were booked through British Airways, It was reported a Sudanese ordered the cheapest tickets to the U.K via telephone and paid via cash, the two passengers identified as two Sudanese Men, one aged 21 and the other aged 25 who entered South Africa on December 14th with valid Sudanese Passports, both men were believed to be asylum seekers, but INTERPOL claimed they believed this is not a terrorist incident

    Crew Involvement-
    Both Captains are suspected of deliberately causing the disappearance, Captain Adams was diagnosed with Depression when he was 14 years old but never told his fellow crew, he attempted suicide 3 times, once time when he was 15, one when he was 17 and the last one at 20, First Officer De Jagar had anger issues in the past but never violent to his fellow workers, on January 3rd,1996, The South African Police Service (SAPS) announced they did over 70 interviews with the families of the 13 crew, SAPS announced if human intervention was involved in the disappearance both pilots are prime suspects. Italy's AISE reconstructed deleted date from Captain Adam's PC but SAPS said they didn't find any sinister on the computer

    The plane was carrying at least 10 pounds of lithium-ion Batteries,2 Pounds of Oil, the batteries were being exported to France from a Chloride Electrical Storage Company factory in South Africa believed to be assembled around November 22nd-28th, the packages containing the batteries did not go through security checkpoints and loaded into 3 ULDS managed to get on to Flight 1758, Lithium-ion batteries catch fire if they overheat, a fire from Lithium-ion batteries caused the crash of UPS Flight 6 and believed to cause the crash of Asiana Cargo flight 991, two drums of oil are also in question were stored in 1 ULD at Cape Town International Airport and were before inspected by officials, According to SAPS, the 2 officials who inspected to oil are in question of suspicion of sabotage.

    Uncontrolled Decompression is also believed to caused Flight 1758 to disappear, it's believed that the pilots turned on Autopilot to make the plane still fly while the hypoxia event was happening, the plane was believed to go through the Mediterranean on autopilot until the plane ran out of fuel explaining why the crew tried to make contact with the Italian navy with no success


    After the Disappearance, Flight 1758 was retired by SAA, SAA used number flight 1695 for their Cape Town-Charles de Gaulle Flights, in 2003 SAA ended operation with their Boeing 747s, in 2012 SAA ended flights from Cape Town to Charles de Gaulle,, Boeing started adding Underwater beacon locators which lasted 30 days in their aircraft to help searchers find underwater aircraft, a call for increased battery life was made following the search for Air France 447, which the wreckage was located in 2011, and South African Airways 295 (link in top of post) which the wreckage was located in 1989, ICAO recommended UBL to last long in 2014 following Malaysia Airlines 370 (Link in top of post), In March of 2016 ICAO adopted several amendments to the Chicago Convention in order to address issues related to the disappearances of Malaysia 370 and South African Airways 1758, In January 2015 The NTSB cited Flight 1758,370 and 447 when it issued Safety Recommendations for location crashed aircraft in Remote/Underwater Locations

    In Popular Culture:

    on December 19th,2005 (The Tenth anniversary of the Disappearance) BBC released a 1 hour and a half documentary called "Europe's Bizarre Mystery, South African Airways Flight 1758"

    On August 25th,2017 Discovery Channel did a one hour documentary called "Europe's 370, What happened to Flight 1758"
