    wing snaps off plane, whole-plane parachute deploys safely

    Dino Moline is an aerobatic pilot whose left wing snapped off from negative g-load during a pushover maneuver at an airshow in El Trebol, Argentina. His Rans S-9 (video incorrectly identifies it as an S-7) was equipped with a Ballistic Recovery Systems whole-plane parachute. The parachute deployed via a solid-fuel rocket, and gently lowered the plane to the ground. A bit of a fire after landing, but Dino walked away.

    Wing snaps off at 2:20. However, 2:00 is a good place to start so you can see the maneuvers that likely stressed the left wing.

    Worst nightmare at an airshow...made me gasp and knew it was coming. Thank goodness for that kind of Tech now days!! Dad and I witnessed the Thunderbird crash during practice at Hamilton back when they flew the led sleds for a year...first time I ever saw my dad cry...me too off and on for days. Long history with them and our family. Seen 3 crashes in my days...never want to see another. Hopefully tech like this keeps being added.

    From March 2016 - a Cirrus SR22 lands with the parachute after it loses engine power. Pilot and one passenger uninjured.

    NTSB accident report: https://www.ntsb.gov/_layouts/ntsb.a...16LA124&akey=1

    From the NTSB report, it looks like the engine manufacturer had issued a service bulletin calling for replacement of the camshaft gear, and the service bulletin had not been complied with.
