    Default Did a C-180 crash in Anchorage?

    Somebody told me that a C-180 crashed on landing in Anchorage in the last couple of days... I have not seen anything other than a story about the Beaver crash in South East.

    Have to wonder what kind of "stuff" happened here? Sounds a bit like a gear problem . . .

    If you went back into time and told Mr. Cessna, Mr. Piper, Mr. Taylor, et-al, that people would one day be flying 60-70 year old airplanes instead of buying new ones, they would laugh in your face.

    And if you told them that the ambulance chasers would drive the price of a new plane from that of a nice car, up to that which is equal to two houses....... well they would probably cuss quite a bit.....


    I fear we will see an increase in incidents and accidents which may be in part a result of the general aviation fleet becoming the victim of age and repairs on top of repairs.

    Nothing a guy breaks on an airplane can't be repaired. Airworthiness is a requirement of an annual inspection. I disagree with the age comment. Lots of old planes are in better flying condition today than they were 50 years ago.
