March 28, Homestead, Fla. / Beech A23 Musketeer


At about 10:06 EST, a Beech Musketeer crashed on initial climbout from Homestead General Aviation Airport. The aircraft was seriously damaged but no one was injured. The pilot said he departed from runway 09 and was at about 50 to 60 feet when he heard a loud noise and the engine started to vibrate. He lowered the nose, saw an open area to his left and made a forced landing there. On touchdown the airplane started sliding to the left and the nosewheel collapsed. The airplane rotated to the left, bending the left main landing gear and the left wing.
