Three wounded in B-25 “Old Glory” crash in California


Quote
The B-25 Mitchell “Old Glory” was seriously damaged when it struck an irrigation ditch during an off-airport landing attempt near Stockton, California. The three crewmembers on board were injured and two were taken to the hospital but fortunately their injuries are not life-threatening.

“Old Glory” is North American B-25J Mitchell built in 1944 (serial number 44-28938, registered N7946C). Authorities have already indicated that the cause of the accident was a mechanical failure, and photos show extensive damage to the aircraft.

Much worse have been rebuilt. Google "Sandbar B-25"

Darn. Hate to see that. It can be rebuilt if they can get the funding.

So it had mechanical problem and they had no choice to land where there is no airport and runway and while doing so, struck an irrigation ditch?

This same aircraft experienced a similar forced landing back in 1982.

A whole bunch of "mechanical failures" could force you to make a "less than desirable" landing, NOW.

Bad fuel/clogged lines leading to both engines shutting down.

Controls broken or stuck...lots more too.
