Those Onboard Escape Serious Injury
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 11.06.06 2040
EST: Three people onboard two Beech V35 Bonanzas escaped
with only minor injuries Monday, after the planes collided as both
were attempting to land at the Los Alamos (NM) Airport.
KRQE-13 reports both aircraft were coming in to land at the
uncontrolled airport just before 3:30 pm Monday. One aircraft,
piloted by local pilot James Unrich, was slightly higher than the
Unrich walked away from the accident uninjured. The pilot of the
lower plane, Robert Johnson, escaped with minor injuries, as did
passenger Paul Lukes.
Footage from KRQE-13 (shown in the screengrab above) shows one
plane perched on top of the other, with neither apparently
suffering serious damage.
Located on the eastern side of a high mesa, the Los Alamos
airport has a single 5,550' x 113' runway, 9/27. Due to its
proximity to the Los Alamos National Laboratory -- and the
accompanying restricted flight area -- landings are limited to
runway 27, with takeoffs from runway 9.
The conjoined aircraft came to rest perpendicular to the
approach end of runway 27.
The FAA is investigating the incident.
