    Another incident at FRG

    Just pulled into the airport to find a Cessna 172 N713RC on it's nose just off 19 south of the intersection. Appears to be another hard landing and gear collapse. Runway 14 is open. Pics tonight.

    Wow. That's 2 in one week! How bizarre.

    Maybe they should just install the cable arresting system on ALL runways and require all aircraft operating at FRG to have a tailhook. LOL

    Fixed that for ya :) Quite odd to see 2 incidents in this quick of a time span. No injuries I'm guessing.

    We never saw an ambulance as part of the response team so one can assume that, thankfully, nobody was hurt. They had the whole thing cleaned up rather quickly.

    Re: Another incident at FRG

    I caught the tail end of the emergency response. The airport appears to be fully operational again.

    Another weird thing is the last time there were accidents at FRG they both happened within less than 24 hours of each other.

    Looks like the nose gear collapsed. Do you think it's a safety issue with the airport, or just bad luck?

    Re: Another incident at FRG

    I pulled into the main terminal lot right after it happened. It was a pleasure meeting Kenny & Joe today.

    Here are a few of mine









    Never did find the new Oracle Bi Plane however.

    I also can't find the Oracle Bi-Plane. Kenny said he saw it though.

    Re: Another incident at FRG

    I was hanging around this afternoon and was noticing that a lot of the smaller planes were being battered around by the winds upon landing. I wonder if he caught a gust that drove him onto the runway.

    Re: Another incident at FRG

    So it looks to me like there was minimal damage to both aircraft. What do you suppose it would it take to make them legally flyable again? What is the process the owner has to go through in such a situation? Obviously, what's broken will need to be repaired or replaced. But who makes the final determination that there is no hidden damage and that the aircraft is airworthy?
