Tecnam Sierra down at Santa Fe, NM (KSAF)

Postby zaitcev » Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:42 am

A Techam P2002 Seirra went down at SAF, on April 8, at about 2140Z. Pitot and instructor were doing T&G. Both died.

Looks like a departure stall. Wreckage is located off the departure end of runway 33.

From the NTSB Preliminary report:

"A witness located near the departure end of the runway reported that as the airplane took off, it did not climb very high and then went sideways and nose-dived towards the ground.

Preliminary review of surveillance camera video, located near the airport terminal, showed the accident airplane taking off on runway 33. The airplane leveled off at a low altitude and shortly thereafter, the video showed the airplane's wing drop and then it entered a steep nose down attitude before it impacted the ground. A postimpact fire ensued."
