    California Air 0811​
    California Air 0811 was a Domestic Scheduled Passenger Flight From Sandy Mountain Airport to San Bernardino National Park Airfield on September 23rd,1980, The flight was carried on by A Former Military now Civilian North American B-25 Mitchell when it crashed landed just 12 minutes from the airport (By Foot) killing five People (2 Crew,3 Passengers) and Seriously Injuring one This accident shocked the Airline since the it started operations just 2 months prior

    About the Airline:
    California Air was a Airline that was found in July 1980 by Brothers Alex and Jerry Reyes to gain attention to tourists visiting California that started with 4 B-25s, 2 B-29s and a Lockhead Model 18. The B-25 were used from 1980 to 1998 , both B-29s were used from 1980 to July 2004 and the Lockhead Model 18 was used from 1980 to August 2004 when the Airline went bankrupt the Airline had over 31 destinations in California, a Destination in Oregon, 2 Destinations in Arizona, 3 Destinations in Washington State , a Destination in Baja California State,Mexico and a Destination in British Columbia,Canada. Flight 0811 was the first accident of the airline and was sued by the victim's families but lost and get to keep the B-25s

    The Flight took off at Sandy Mountain Airport in Sandy Mountain County,California (Just 10 Miles north of the U.S/Mexico Border) with a Fuel stop in San Andres Airfield, Just 20 Miles from Sandy Mountain Airport Flight was Operated by a North American B-25 Mitchell Regestation FS938JK built in 1941 for World War 2 it was damaged in the Battle of Midway it was repaired in 1942 and bought by California Air in August 1980 the aircraft has 18,092 Hours of Flight the 3 crew consisted of 42 year old Pilot Ernest Brooks, A Vietnam War Veteran with 6,798 Hours and 21 year old Co-Pilot Alice Woods who just began flying since she only had 14 Hours of Experience and was a Registered Nurse The Passengers consisted of Danish Couple Frederik, and Luna Arnth, both 24, a American Compliance Officer Percy "Pe" Dean,41 and his Wife Stephanie,39 the Plane took off without problems

    The Plane turned out to not be Fully Repaired since Other Passengers of other flights recalled the screws connecting the Cab and main body weren't really screwed on and would fall off separating the plane pilot Brooks notified ATC About which altitude to fly at if the screws came off which ATC ignored causing Brooks to pull up slowly causing the cab to snap off causing a demise and crashed on Cambridge Road just 12 Minutes from Sandy Mountain Airport (By Foot) the main body landed on Jacob's Peak but rolled down the hill and reunite with Cab nearby

    The Mountains are know for a Good Hiking Destination. Several Hikers of a Autism Awareness Group witness the crash and immediately run to the scene in hope of finding survivors only to find Stephanie Alive everyone else is fatally injured Paramedics and The Nearby Fire Department arrived 8 minutes later

    the Plane on a test flight a day before the it's first commercial flight in August 1980:

    Date: September 23rd,1980
    Site: 1000 Meters from Sandy Mountain Airport,California,U.S.A
    Summary: Mechanical Failure,Pilot Error
    Aircraft: North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator: California Air
    Registration: FS938JK
    Injuries (Non Fatal):1
    Phase: In Flight
    Nature: Domestic Scheduled Passenger
    Origin Airport: Sandy Mountain Airport,Sandy Mountain County,California,U.S.A
    Destination Airport: San Berardino National Park, San Bernardino County,California,U.S.A
    Flight Number: 0811

    Investigators arrived two hours later to the scene and noticed how the screws were scattered apart from each other. one of the Investigation questioned Stephanie and she reported she can't recall anything . The Wreckage was sent to the Sandy Mountain Airport to be more investigated on. in 2002 It was revealed that California Air Mechanics were Rushed for repairing their aircraft's causing the crew to forget to properly screw the pins in place concluding the mechanics forgot to properly screw the pins supporting the Cockpit this concludes this:

    The Pilots desision to increase altitude causing the cockpit to break off and The Rushing of Mechanics causing a error in the screwing

    Many Safety Recomendation were published in December 2002 by Investigators. The Sandy Mountain Airport has a Monument for the 5 killed and California Air Payed the Victim's families $55,000 (360,460.06 DKK for the Danish Victims Families) California Air went bankrupt in 2004

    Narrative :
    The amateur built B-25 bomber replica toke off from an unknown location for a local test flight, flown by an experienced American Airlines captain, who built and owned the plane, with a friend of his as the co-pilot and 2 passengers, one seated in the nose.
    The pilot conducted several low passes / low flying maneuvers over the Green Valley lakes/mountains, during the last low pass, the B-25 hit a tree and out of control, impacting terrain near a road.
    The plane was destroyed. All 4 occupants were fatally injured. The passenger seated in the back of the plane initially survived the crash.

    - Cause :
    The crash was not investigated by federal agencies back in 1980, the Green Valley Police Department attempted to discovered what caused the crash, but without success.

    Status : Investigation Completed
    Duration : 6 months

    Polar Express Air Flight 203
    Polar Express Air Flight 203 was a domestic scheduled passenger flight from Mammoth Valley to Green Valley, USA. On the 19th of November, 1969, flight 203 was being operated with a B-25 when it crashed into a mountain in low visibility conditions, killing all 11 occupants.

    - Flight :
    The aircraft departed from an open area that was used as an airfield by airlines that operated their aircraft in Mammoth Valley. On board the aircraft were 2 pilots, 1 flight navigator and 8 passengers, mostly local shop workers traveling to Green Valley to spend their holidays. The aircraft departed after a Mammoth Valley DC-3, the DC-3 crew reported heavy clouds and fog above 7000 feet.
    The flight was eventful until it reached 6500 feet, the captain decided to give controls to the Co-pilot, he was less experienced, especially in bad weather.
    The co-pilot toke control of the aircraft at around 7100 feet, despite the fog, the plane was spotted by the passengers on board the ahead DC-3, they reported seeing the aircraft "shake" before starting to descend slowly. The descent continued until 6600 feet, that's when the captain decided to take control of the aircraft. He pulled aggressively on the controls, causing structure damage to the wing, now in a panic, the captain kept the nose up and he started to increase the trim angle. The aircraft entered a slow spinning stall. At around 2000 feet, the pilot changed the flap positions and lowered the landing gears. The nose started to drop, but the altitude was insufficient for a recovery. The plane impacted a mountain in a nose-first position. All 11 occupants were killed.

There is a Messerschmitt Me 262 flying in the area of the B-25 being piloted by Kamikaze Orio Shigematsu with 4,382 hours of flying after being told a American Aircraft was flying in the area. The Me 262 locates the B-25 and Kamikaze Orio crashes into the back side of the B-25 making it lose its tail and go hopelessly to the ground. Captain Orio then aims towards the ground and crashes. All eight on board the B-25 and The Pilot of the 262 died

    the reason the B-25 got noticed and attack down was the B-25 Pilot's decision to fly near enemy base and low altitude where the plane was noticeable and close to radar

    GN Computer Express Flight 147
    GN Computer Express Flight 147 was domestic computer flight from the So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, Nevada, to San Francisco International Airport, California. On June 9th, 1975, a civilian operated B-25 Mitchell was used for the flight, the aircraft was leased from Air Metro California and operating for GN Computer Express when it crashed into a hill in Green Valley, California, killing all 15 occupants.

    - Flight :
    Flight 147 departed the So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, with the destination airport being San Francisco International. On board the aircraft were 4 crew members and 11 passengers, mostly factory workers heading to their families. Weather conditions at the time of departure were described as perfect, and the flight was uneventful from take off to initial climb until the crew entered the California border.
    The Captain was informed about heavy fog and bad weather conditions around the area of the original flight plan. The ATC cleared the flight to choose another route to the airport, one of the suggestions was Green Valley, a small pond surrounded by wooded hills.
    The Captain accepted to choose the Green Valley route, and the flight did not report any problems during the way to the Valley.
    About two minutes before reaching the area, The Captain told the First Officer "Hey, It seems that this valley is foggy as well!".
    The Flight contacted the ATC and told him about the weather conditions in the area, the ATC told the crew that he had another aircraft flying behind them, and he requested them to hold until he could guide the other aircraft. The crew accepted and waited clearance to increase the altitude flight.
    The Flight was cleared to climb to 10.000 feet, while keeping clearance from the other aircraft, which was a Metro Air Nevada Lockheed L-1011 TriStar flying at 12.000 feet.
    The ATC operations went silent until 46 seconds later, when the TriStar crew reported seeing the B-25 entering the descend, the following transmission was sent:
    "Air Metro 933 Heavy, other aircraft in sight, Its unable to maintain altitude!".
    The ATC contacted Flight 147, the Captain told the ATC that they were trying to deal with a problem:
    "GN Express 147, we have a malfunction, please stand by".
    The ATC lost track of the plane about 20 seconds later. The TriStar crew reported seeing a big explosion in the heavy fog of Green Valley.
    - Rescue :
    Rescue operations arrived on the scene a few moments later, it was immediately known that all 15 occupants were killed.

    Site : Green Valley, CA, USA
    Summary : CFIT, Spatial disorientation in Fog
    Aircraft Type : North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator : GN Computer Express
    Registration : N6938C
    Crew : 4
    Passengers : 11
    Survivors : 0
    Fatalities : 15 (all)
    Injures : --
    Phase : En-route
    Nature : Domestic Scheduled Passenger
    Departure Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, NV, USA
    Destination Airport : San Francisco International Airport, CA, USA
    Damage : Destroyed

    - Wreckage :
    The wreckage scattered all over the hill, small parts became tangled in trees, and the road located right next to the crash site was closed.

    Investigators determined that the aircraft impacted the hill at an angle of 69 °, while flying at a speed near the structure limitations of the airframe (The aircraft nearly broke up before the impact).

    (Impact illustration)
    The cockpit and nose section were completely crushed by the impact, it was impossible to recover all flight instruments, but the investigators managed to recover the Altitude indicator and Speed Indicator. An examination of the Speed Indicator found no faults with it, but the investigators couldn't completely determine if the Altitude Indicator was working before the impact.

    The tail section was substantially damaged, all flight control surfaces (Rudders/Elevators) were scattered across the hill. The main tail section came to the rest next to a tree.

    The mid-section of the aircraft was completely crushed and destroyed from the front, both wings did not separate from the main fuselage, but they were completely crushed and destroyed. The engines were destroyed, but investigators determined they working at the time of impact.
    The middle section was also crushed, It was determined that the crash was unsurvivable based on the wreckage examination.

    - Investigation :
    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 147 as the following:

    • The crew's spatial disorientation while flying in a traffic pattern near a larger aircraft in foggy weather conditions. Which resulted in an uncontrolled descent and impact with the ground. Contributing factors (1)- The lack of new technology on board the aircraft, and... (2) The possible failure of the Altitude Indicator due to water leakage.
