Helicopter crash survivor still feels guilt seven years later

Aviation crashes in New York and across the United States have a lot of technical and legal elements that need to be sorted through once the incident occurs, but it's important to remember that these types of crashes often involve the loss of life. Each life that is lost is often connected to a family that is left mourning. Although these stories are quickly covered in the news media when the incident occurs, it is rare to read a news story years later updating readers on the state of those injured or left behind.

The aftermath of an aviation accident can be difficult

Taking a ride in a small aircraft can be an exciting experience. Whether it's your first time in a private plane as part of a tourist attraction or a ride in your friend's personal aircraft, it can be a little scary but also very exhilarating. Most people who board a small aircraft never imagine that they could be injured or lose their life that day.

FAA faces Congress: You'll shoot your eye out - or worse p2

We are continuing our discussion of a recent House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee hearing about drones. Unmanned aircraft systems are used in commerce and for recreation, and they are appearing more frequently in places they should not be.

We are returning to our discussion of the Shoreham, England, airshow accident. The accident occurred when a vintage jet was attempting a loop-de-loop but failed to come out of the dive. The plane crashed into the A27 highway, killing 11 people. The pilot suffered serious injuries (the plane exploded into flames on impact), but he is, according to the Independent's story on Sept. 11, recovering.

Ad banners in the sky may be closer than they appear p3

It is hard not to smile when you spot a plane flying high overhead, pulling an ad banner. For some of us, there may be a flicker of curiosity about how the process works, but we soon just watch in wonder. It's cool. Who cares if it's effective -- it's cool.

Ad banners in the sky may be closer than they appear p2

The July 4 crash landing of a Piper "Super Cub" trailing a banner on a Carlsbad, California, beach resulted in one injury, and the injured boy has made a full recovery. The pilot was able to land relatively safely after the plane's engine stopped, but the underlying cause of the accident is still unknown.

Ad banners in the sky may be closer than they appear

An accident in California calls attention to an often overlooked aviation risk: advertising banners. A 12-year-old was injured on the Fourth of July when a Piper PA-18 towing an advertising banner made an emergency landing on a busy beach. Authorities said the plane flipped over right before it crashed into the water not too far from the boy; the propeller or another part of the plane struck him in the head.

Shore excursion goes terribly wrong. Who is responsible? p3

We are wrapping up our discussion of the June crash of a float plane in southeast Alaska. The plane was part of a flightseeing excursion from a Holland America cruise liner. According to the National Transportation Safety Bureau, the plane took off in "marginal" weather conditions, but the cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
