Pilot has hard landing at Langley Airport.

Well, I've been flying for 7 years and this is the first time every in which I was a witness to an airplane incident.

What I saw, I was number 2 coming in rwy01 at Langley Airport, piper ahead of me came in way too fast, bounced, wind caught his tail and he did a 360 skid off the runway almost hitting the hangers there.

Quote:
LANGLEY (NEWS1130) - The pilot is OK after hard landing at Langley Regional Airport this afternoon. He was the only one onboard the small plane at the time. Emergency crews are on scene.

Our Kim Seale in the News1130 Air Patrol flew over the scene and says it looks like the pilot hit a gust of wind. "He was coming into runway 10 and had a real quick landing here and maybe lost control. He's right over on the apron beside the runway now, near where the Air Cadet hangers are. There's one fire truck still on scene but we are hearing the pilot is fine."

Emergency crews were called there as a precaution.
Stay safe fellow aviators.

Glad to hear no one was hurt. Been flying around every year to Alberta and Nova Scotia for about 11 years now and have had a few "situations" but never been a part of or witnessed an accident

It happened around 3 today when I was coming back to Langley for full stop. You didn't hear Air1 at all on the radio? He was called in just after 3.

Wow, glad to hear the pilot is fine. Could have been disastrous.

Did he go off to the right of 01?

Watching cross wind landings make me so uneasy. I don't know how these pilots do it so well.

I saw a pilot descending into yvr today. Going into fast and then just after riverrock did an emergency pull out. Dunno wtf was going on. Wrong runway? Hee was flying extremely low the whole time even before his final descent. Even while circling beforehand

^ saw that at about 3pm at McDonald beach
circling yrv and Vancouver for over an hour
so low and he was at like a 60 degree angle over our heads

I googled it and saw a bunch of links in the past about testing jets

Did it have two engines on the rear tail of the aeroplane?

Don't be man, be confident. It's not hard and if in doubt just ask the controller again. Oh and don't pull the mixture instead of the carb heat.

Did it look like this? If so it's just Nav Canada doing test runs and making shit is working up to snuff. They had one in Abby last year. Pretty fun to see such a big plane being thrown around low level.

yea id say it was very similar to that plane. it was way too small for any big airliner looked like a private jet with 2 engines at rear. didnt make out the colour was too mind fucked by the snow and sun at the same time

I think it more likely had to do with the weather. There was a funnel cloud spotted over richmond in the early afternoon and we had hail and then a full on blizzard in north van around 330 today. Its most likely the aircraft was beyond crosswind limits or was too low on approach (for whatever reason) and did a missed approach.

Generally, YVR is not used for training.

Also likey, the guy was doing an ifr in imc into YVR, broke out of the clouds and called visual approach, then decided to switch runways due to wind. He would have to stay low to circle for the other runway, otherwise he'd wind up back in cloud and have to start the whole procedure approach all over again.

Ya that's Nav Canada dickin around. Had that thing pass under my partner and I when we were flying the Cessna (we were at like 1500'). Pretty fun to see it flying around real low like that.

5/6 passes isn't a missed approach haha.
