A Small Sampling of the Intensely Interesting and Strange Accident Stories Inside
You’ll read about the total loss of life on a flight from Washington-Hoover airport to Pittsburgh. The trip was delayed as the plane sat on the ramp waiting for the late arrival of one of its passengers. Something unheard of today.
Witnesses say they saw a bolt of lightning come out of the sky, and then the plane went straight down. One witness saw a “hard streak of lightning,” heard thunder, and then a roar of motors “like the plane was taking a nosedive.”
You’ll read about the Captain who took off the Charleston airport and immediately lost his right engine. He bravely coxed the aircraft over a couple of high tension lines as he valiantly attempted to gain enough altitude to depart the area safely. Despite his best attempts, he found himself, after just making it over the second high tension wires, climbing through a narrow valley. He realized that he could neither turn around nor gain enough altitude to pass over the ridge coming closer to him every moment.
Quickly Captain Wright came up with an ingenious plan. You’ll have to read the report to discover what Captain Wright decided to do.
Unbelievably, Captain Wright was also the pilot in command of the very next PCA accident as well. Talk about having a bad day at work!
