Airplane Cleared The Airport Perimeter Fence And Continued To Bank Right Until It Was Out Of Sight

On October 4, 2020, about 0935 Pacific daylight time, a weight shift control (WSC) light sport airplane, commonly referred to as a “Trike,” N449WB, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Hawthorne, California. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. A witness was driving his vehicle near the Jack Northrop Field/Hawthorne Municipal Airport (HHR), Hawthorne, California, when he observed the airplane depart the runway and turned right at a height of about 500 ft above the ground (agl). Another witness and friend of the accident pilot was performing a preflight on his airplane when he saw the airplane takeoff from runway 25 and climb to about 30-40 ft agl before banking right.

Classic Aero-TV: The Visual Eagle 360-Seeing/Experiencing Flying Comprehensively

From 2013: Ingenious Airborne Video System Catches ANN's Eye

While at AOPA 2013, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell spoke with David Tenenbaum, CEO of Airborne Sensor, LLC. Airborne Sensor produces an externally mounted aircraft camera system called the Eagle 360. Being a self-admitted techno-geek, Jim just couldn’t pass this up. The Eagle 360 camera system is a pod that mounts externally on the outside of the aircraft. A simple plate is installed on the airplane and the pod can be easily attached or detached. It uses the GoPro camera, and can house from 1 to 4 cameras for any type of video recording. The installation requires an STC and, according to Tenenbaum, almost any FAA part 23 certified aircraft is approved for the installation.
