Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - November 5, 1994, Kokomo, Indiana Tribute to area bands Inside Vol 144 No 63 Kokomo Ind Saturday Nov SO cents Fatal crash Snyder remembered Family members friends and coworkers pay tribute to ics Corp were among 68 people who died when American David Allen Snyder 58 Kokomo Friday at the Fenn Eagle Flight 4184 crashed in a soybean field near Roselawn Shirley Mortuary France Colonial Chapel 1315 W Lincoln late Monday afternoon Road Snyder and three other employees of Delco Electron Tribune photo by Tim Bath Plane crash prompts ban No autopilot in icy conditions By TED BRIDIS Associated Press The government Friday banned planes of the type that crashed this week in Indiana from flying on autopilot into icy conditions a profile that fit both Mondays fatal crash and previ ous inflight emergencies involv ing ATR planes The Federal Aviation Adminis tration issued its order four days after the American Eagle ATR72 rolled upside down and plunged into an Indiana farm field in a rainstorm killing all 68 aboard The ban applies bom to the twinengine nighwing turbo prop involved in Mondays crash and its shorter cousin the ATR42 The FAA ordered pilots of the craft not to use autopilot during icy weather and to avoid pro longed operations in tempera tures near freezing with visible saying those condi tions could cause uncommand ed The FAA also ordered pilots of those planes not to extend flaps while circling and to keep engine power at above 86 percent while flying in icy weather Other airlines that use the planes are Trans World Express Trans States Airlines Continen tal Express Mahalo Air and Atlantic Southeast Airlines Earlier Friday federal inspec tors at the crash site about 60 miles southeast of Chicago were cautious not to blame any sys tem in the ATR72 airliner But the events leading up to the Indiana crash appeared to fit a pattern of previous episodes involving ATR twinengine propjets And even before the FAA acted the airline this week ordered its crews not to fly on autopilot during icy conditions National Transportation Safety Board investigators said infor mation from Flight 4184s data Kosciusko County coroners continue to look for remains AP photo recorder shows the pilot turned on his deicing equipment 16 minutes before the crash The plane was on autopi lot in a holding pattern for Chicagos OHare Airport at the time and though the ground temperature was 44 degrees the temperature at the planes altitude of feet was well below freezing Ice on a wing can alter its aero dynamic shape substantially reducing lift and making the craft dangerously unstable The flight data recorder shows an alarm sounded in the cockpit moments before the crash warn ing that the plane was flying too fast 213 mph for its flaps to be extended Flaps are used to slow the plane on approach to an air The absolutely essential piece of evidence is what happened Chuck Eastlake professor of aerospace engineering port and for extra lift when tak ing off and landing The pilot retracted his flaps and seconds later the planes ailerons the controls for turn ing and banking deflected for an unknown reason The planes flight data recorder showed the craft then rolled 77 degrees to the right standing nearly on end It slight ly recovered then flipped upside down and crashed from about feet The absolutely essential piece of evidence is what happened said Chuck Eastlake pro fessor of aero space engi neering at EmbryRid dle Aeronau tical Universi ty in Daytona Beach Fla If the ailerons moved first and caused the roll men some kind of malfunction in the con trol system is a high probability If the airplane rolled first the autopilot would have moved the ailerons within a fraction of a second to correct the roll If that was the case the suspect thing would be meterological condi tions wind shear or An Italian ATR crashed in 1987 and killed 37 people in an acci dent that government investiga tors there blamed on ice and the crews inability to correct a rolling of the aircraft after flying on autopilot Bankers work up a sweat Its all for United Way ByLISAFIPPS Tribune staff writer First National Bank is breaking a
