Pax on board: 0. Total fatalities: 0. Aircraft flight hours: The captain then left the cockpit while cross-feeding. Both tank valves and the right boost pump were on. The right tank ran dry, the right engine failed, and the prop autofeathered while the captain was absent. The captain returned, turned on the left boost pump, but left the right boost pump and the valves open, and attempted to restart the right engine.

The left engine then failed but this was not recognized by the crew. The electrical system failed due to the attempted restarts and the fact that nonessential equipment was not turned off.

The captain did not apply sufficient pull to the emergency gear handle to lower the gear manually. The aircraft was landed on a short wet sod runway, with the gear and flaps up, at a high rate of speed.

The aircraft ran off the end of the runway, through a ditch, across a road, and into trees. Both pilots escaped uninjured. Probable cause: Occurrence 1: loss of engine power total - nonmechanical Phase of operation: cruise - normal Findings 1.

Fluid, fuel - starvation 3. Flight number: VS Country: Norway. Region: Europe. Crew on board: 4. Aircraft flight cycles: Circumstances: Following an uneventful charter flight from Zurich, the crew started the approach to runway 19 in excellent weather conditions. Following a wrong approach configuration, the aircraft landed nose first. On touchdown, the nose gear collapsed and the airplane slid on its nose for several meters before both mains gears collapsed as well.

The airplane slid on its belly for dozen meters, veered off runway to the left and came to rest in a grassy area. All 60 occupants were evacuated safely while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.

Circumstances: The Convair approached Campbell River with the weather just above minima ,5 miles visibility, feet broken ceiling and wind degrees with gusts to 20 mph.

The crew positioned the aircraft visually 2nm south of the airfield on a westerly heading preparatory to attempting an approach to the west. This would involve a right hand circuit flown above the broken south and west of the airport employing DME and ADF information.

This improvised approach was not in accordance with published approach procedures under instrument conditions. After flying for 1 minute and 40 seconds the crew turned right. A few seconds after the captain expressed concern, the Convair struck a feet hill at feet.

Probable cause: Wrong approach configuration on part of the flying crew who failed to comply with the approved instrument approach procedure. Flight number: CRB All Puerto Rico. Country: Puerto Rico.

Last 15 seconds of flight, the crew adopted a rate of descent of 1, feet per minute. Subscribe to Convair CV Copyright -


Convair 640 Ground Support Equipment

The Convair CV is an American airliner that Convair manufactured from to , initially as a possible replacement for the ubiquitous Douglas DC Featuring a more modern design with cabin pressurization , the series made some inroads as a commercial airliner, and had a long development cycle that produced various civil and military variants. Though reduced in numbers by attrition, various forms of the "Convairliners" continue to fly in the 21st century. The design began with a requirement by American Airlines for an airliner to replace its Douglas DC-3s. Convair's original design, the unpressurised Model , was a twin-engine, low-wing monoplane of all-metal construction, with 30 seats. It had a tricycle landing gear , and a ventral airstair for passenger boarding. Convair used the first prototype for series development work before it had it broken up in
