Investigators look for cause of small plane crash

Small plane crashes can be devastating to people in New York and across the country who lose loved ones when a general aviation flight goes down. While private flights can be convenient and entertaining, some may be concerned about whether small general aviation airplanes are maintained as regularly as those operated by large commercial carriers. One serious small plane accident in Billings, Montana, took the lives of four people on Jan. 12, 2020. The small plane, a one-engine Cessna 182, crashed on Dunn Mountain between Billings and Roundup.

Montana airplane crash kills all four on board

Those in New York who fly private airplanes may be interested in a crash that occurred in the midwestern United States. Four people died as a result of the single-engine airplane crash 25 miles north of Billings, Montana in the Bull Mountains. The crash happened in the evening on Jan. 11, 2020.

Fewer large airline crashes in 2019

People in New York may be safer than in the past when flying on commercial airlines, according to a report. In 2019, the number of people who lost their lives in airplane crashes on commercial flights dropped by over 50%. This sharp decrease in deaths came despite a major crash in Ethiopia in March 2019, which killed 153 people. Still, the toll taken by commercial airplane crashes can be severe. The report, which examined large jets rather than small turboprops, noted that 2019 saw 86 different accidents involving commercial flights, and eight of them were fatal. In those crashes, 257 people were killed.

NTSB has preliminary information on small plane crash

Some people in New York might have heard about a plane crash in Louisiana that happened on December 28. Five people died in the crash of the Piper PA-31T, which took off from Lafayette Regional Airport and was on its way to Atlanta. One person survived the crash and is in critical condition. Three people on the ground were also injured. According to a National Transportation Safety Board official, the plane never sent a distress call.
