Plane's Wing Struck Approach Lights
Two men were injured Thursday morning, one seriously, when their
Cessna 172A crashed on landing at Double Eagle II Airport (AEG)
west of Albuquerque, NM.
Airport manager Mike Medley tells ANN he believes the plane was
on an extremely low approach to runway 22 when the Cessna's right
wing struck a MALSR (Medium-intensity Approach Lighting System with
Runway alignment indicator) light pole, spinning the aircraft
The plane came to rest on its nose and left wing, approximately
10 yards northwest of the approach end of the runway. The tip of
the Cessna's right wing was sharply upturned, and both wings showed
signs of crumpling indicative of a fairly strong impact.
State Police Lt. Eric Garcia identified the men onboard as
Martin Nedza of Arizona and Lawrence Muldon of Indiana, reports the
Associated Press. Nedza is listed as the owner of the Cessna,
One of men was transported by helicopter to University of New
Mexico Medical Center, while the second was taken to the hospital
by ambulance with minor injuries. Both were reported in stable
condition Thursday afternoon.
Medley said the plane departed Tuscon, AZ this morning, and was
stopping at AEG for fuel before continuing on to Illinois.
Severe clear and light southeasterly winds prevailed at the time
of the accident, approximately 0930 MDT.
