Two Injured In B-36 Accident

Down In Field Shortly After Take-Off

A New Jersey couple was hospitalized in Elko (NV) Tuesday morning after their Beechcraft B-36 made an emergency landing in a field shortly after take-off from Elko Regional Airport.

Authorities said the couple had just departed Elko's Runway 5 and apparently ran into power problems right away.

"To the tower, it didn't appear he climbed at a normal rate of climb," said airport director Cris Jensen.

The aircraft hit a stop sign and crossed a highway before coming to rest in a field, according to authorities. Brian Adams was at work in a nearby truck stop. "It was pretty devastating," he said in an interview with the Elko Free-Press. "I saw the flames shoot about 50 feet in the air and I felt the heat on my face."

As the Bonanza skidded along the road, it went right past the Elko Fire Department. Firefighters, who were outside washing their engines, rushed to the scene where the aircraft came to rest.

"This could have been a lot worse than it was," Adams said.
