Small Plane Crashes In Salem Co.
#1 Jul 12, 2007
In my opinion looks like a flaw to me...the pilots pre-flighted the aircraft and saw no water in their sump cup. They take off and the engine sputters to a halt. Post crash the FAA finds water in the fuel tank of the aircraft.
How come the pilots did not detect the water before they took off? Could there be a lack of positive detection of water in the fuel tanks of the Cessna 177? A simple test can determine if the Cessna integral fuel tank is flawed. Just pour twenty ounces of red dyed water into the fuel tank as the aircraft sits in its normal ground attitude, then go to the sump drain and see if you can detect and remove the entire twenty ounces of red dyed water you just poured into the tank. Good luck. I have tried to bring this indicated design flaw to the attention of the NTSB and FAA for over eight years. Both continue to ignore my efforts as they do the injured and the dead.
