On October 30, 1993, at 1600 Alaska daylight time, a wheel equipped Cessna 150 airplane, N7022F, owned and operated by the pilot-in-command, crashed on takeoff from a remote landing site near Black Lake, Alaska. Black Lake is approximately 35 miles south of Port Heiden, Alaska. The private certificated pilot and his passenger, the sole occupants, were not injured and the airplane sustained substantial damage. The personal flight, operating under 14 CFR Part 91, last departed Chignik Lake and the destination was the remote landing strip. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a VFR flight plan was not filed. Use your browsers 'back' function to return to synopsisReturn to Query Page
The pilot-in-command told the NTSB investigator-in-charge during a telephone interview, that the takeoff area was marked by brush on both sides. During the takeoff run, the left wing collided with the brush. The airplane veered to the left and went up on its nose and right wing.
