Mike,

Sorry to hear about your experience. Glad to see the video of you, hands on your hips, talking to the first responders. You did great, sir.

I have a 21' flat bed aluminum trailer and a couple engine hoists in Kissimmee. If they can be of any assistance in your recovery efforts, please let me know.

 You might take a look at the Amzoil racer incident. You will find it is not only a tandem wing design but 
was constructed by RAF specifically with the features you are alluding to.  There are some other 
revisions since then that can also add margins, to a limit. 

 Survival has much has to do with time available to evaluate. Dave arriving at the FOD in Enid, now Mike. 
The amount of time to deal with a "7700" code is pertinent. I had my first in flight emergency rather early 
in my piloting days (had just soloed 2 hours before with a total of 7.5 hours in my logbook!), and it was at 
possibly the worst time frame in any flight. But I learned each pilot who has experienced an in-flight emergency 
had a problem "package" to deal with and all of us can learn something very positive from their experiences.  

 Something that really bugs the hell out of me is the non-flying public doesn't understand is when a pilot that 
is well versed and confident in the machine, then has an in-flight emergency, the training kicks in.. AFTER 
some delay to realize what is happening, they have a very good chance to survive. The airplane doesn't just 
fall out of the sky in a "nose dive". The airplane probably won't survive, but it is a machine and can be replaced. 
It is expendable; but those below and inside are not, and in the midst of the emergency that is exactly the 
mindset needed.   
 
 All of a sudden the "what if" becomes VERY real, and the survivor PIC always does this "fly the airplane first!" 

 In my case a rental Cessna 152 gave me a behind the instrument panel electrical fire, which quickly progressed 
to a full on carpet blaze and the cabin almost instantly full of stinging and choking smoke. Once I realized the 
emergency situation my training kicked in.  I hit the main buss, opened the window to evacuate the smoke and 
then had to beat the flaming carpet fire out with my metal E6B! As Richard Prior once said..FIRE IS INSPIRATIONAL! 

I did this all at about 600 feet, already past the runway, and in a TRIMMED climb (I stress that as I had practiced 
and was trained to do, the aircraft was already trimmed for best climb speed) and over a large area of residential housing 
below. No idea how much fire I still had going on, or where, but the airplane was still controllable and the 
powerplant still operating.  

 First thing after the visible fire was out...fly airspeed best rate of climb away from the residential, next level off, turn and 
return, last was line up for the grass downwind and prepare to abandon ship as soon as possible. I shut the engine and fuel 
selector off in the flare. BOTH off. There was no time for radio work and the main buss was off anyway. North Little Rock Municipal
was a non controlled field and is where I learned to fly from. The active was 18 that day, light breezes, CAVU. 

 Once below about 20 mph I unstrapped and took the exit allowing the airplane to roll in the grass near the active past 
me to a clear area from anyone or anything else. All of this happened in less than probably 8 minutes time.     

 Years later I was fortunate enough to listen to Capt. Sully in person. An Airbus is a bit different than a Cessna. The forum 
was totally dedicated and endorsed by the Seattle area F.A.A. and I took the day off from work at Boeing to go. Totally 
about emergency landing experiences as told by other pilots. I would HIGHLY suggest any here who have not yet 
done so to attend any such offerings from the E.A.A. or F.A.A.  

 From the Aerospace Engineering side, Ian, we can only build in so much margin..and at the end of the day the 
pilot in command is the key factor, and that has been true if it says so or not in nearly every report you might read. 
 The CAUSE will be secondary to you at the moment of realization the situation is going to result in an emergency landing.
The RESULT of what is on the 6 o'clock news is usually the person in the left seat. 

 In a race car the events happen so quickly there is very little the driver can do other than relax and take the ride. You 
can't do that in an aircraft. Cars don't normally fly, conversely, airplanes usually operate in three dimensions. But do take 
a look at the Amzoil and the events it experienced at Reno. We can improve of course...but the PIC is a very big part of the 
improvements.
 
 Ironically my job at the time at Boeing I attended the F.A.A. Forum was Engineering protection due to in-flight cargo fires..to 
protect the aircraft structure and systems long enough from cruise altitude so the crew could have a chance at survival.  That 
ability was NOT the case in the 747-400 and earlier. Several of 747 versions prior to -8 have resulted in total fatalities due to 
lithium battery fires in the cargo areas. I was Lead M.E. in charge of flammability testing and production on 747-8F and 
747-8 Intercontinental. The same is true on 777. both Freighter and Passenger built from about 2011 to now. I was also part of 
the effort on those airacraft in the same cargo group.  

 So.. BIG time Kudos to Mike and also Dave! They both proved serious mettle in the heat of the moment.  And yes... the News
people are big time drama vampires in my thinking. They are especially negative toward aviation in general and especially 
toward general aviation!

Hi,

Never met Mike, but have seen all his YouTube videos, and I too am very glad he came out of this OK.

I had similar thoughts about the canard and also the firewall.  I’m expecting to receive my unbuilt kit in July and wonder if this can be treated as a learning opportunity for new builders such as myself.  


I have several safety concerns about the crashworthyness as designed.  I have planned to look at a ‘false floor’ to provide a flat area for  the pedals and potentially conceal plumbing, wiring etc.  I also feel that the attachment of the firewall bulkhead to the fuselage seems a little ‘minimal’; this crash possibly indicates that may be true.  My major concern are the fuel tanks/system.  Very fortunately there appears to have been no fuel spillage in this case, but from my research it appears many were not so fortunate.

Obviously a major accident is never going to have a good result; my concern is the minor accidents that have potential to have a very bad result, but could possibly be mitigated with better design or manufacturing.

Is there a case for a ‘lessons learned’ discussion?

Again, very happy Mike survived this accident and feel badly for the loss of his aircraft.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your reply. 

I agree that parts coming off is a good thing.  I made my career in professional motorsports and we design the cars, F1 and Indy, to shed parts the dissipate energy.  200+mph against a concrete wall is a hard hit and we’ve made it survivable, but key to that is maintaining a ‘survival cell’, hence my thoughts about keeping the front bulkhead.  I’d like to see the engine separate and get far away, but leave the structure intact.

Having a fuel spill and no fire is beyond lucky!  Cool engine definitely helped.  It reinforces my decision to use bladders, dry break connectors etc.  I’ve even thought about an onboard fire system.  All standard race car stuff.

Very happy you came through this.  I actually think there was more than luck at play, you obviously kept your head and made some good decisions.  Bravo!

Ian

Hi Bart,
The ntsb wouldn't let me open it up to look, but I had an oil cooler hooked up with two flex lines to the engine.  I suspect one line may have come loose and I was pumping oil overboard.  My normal oil consumption was 8 hours per qt.
And I took off with 5 qts.

Ian,
I liked the firewall tearing off.  Fyi, when the canard ripped off it took the header tank with it and cracked the main tank so I had a total fuel spillage.  

No fire for 3 reasons.  1) had been gliding for a while and engine was off and cool.  2) landed on grass. 3) electrical design that I had not planned on.  A large cable came up to the starter solenoid and was high up on the firewall, engine side.  That wire stayed hot, so not great.  Then I ran all the aircraft systems from a smaller hot wire that ran to a plug under the instrument panel.  That plug separated in the crash basically shutting down everything.

That turned out to be a good idea.

Based on all your posts I know you really enjoyed flying that airplane. So sad to see all that come to an end for now. That airplane served you well even in the end.

 Still impressed by you and the others in this group that keep your head when things like this happen. 
Glad you're all right. 
God's not done with you yet.

There was an accident a couple days ago in St. Augustine (where Patty is based out of I believe) where a female aviator died after landing long. Wasn't Patty.

Just got this from our local CH8 news... That I was kinda rude to.  Told him I'm not going to say anything and tried very hard to keep my back to them.  Never talk to reporters after a crash!  I was actually going for that road until all these cars showed up!  And, darn, no inside camera today.  I don't know if I'd have taken the time to turn it on anyway.

Yup, lost oil pressure and engine quit just a bit too soon.  Didn't quite make the airport.  The Q is one tough bird.  Not a scratch on me but plane is totaled.  More to follow.

Being told by a friend that there's a Q-200 down in Florida today. I'm told the pilot survived, but the airplane is destroyed. I will post pictures as soon as I get them.
