2018 – N67WR – Richard Knapp- Velocity SE/RG – Blountville, Tenn – 0

Apparently crashed on landing, injuring 2, around dusk. This is the second accident for this aircraft. Wiki entry. [UPDATE] {NTSB preliminary says the mixture and prop controls were found full-in, as they should be. Unknown when they were set there, but does cast doubt on my original theory.} There’s no NTSB preliminary on it yet, but from News […]

2015 – N112TH – Andrew Liptak – Velocity SE/RG – Sebastian, FL – 0

I’m not yet sure about the tail number, but based on the color scheme, and the fact this airplane was for sale, it seems right. I’ll update this when the NTSB report drops. It looks like from the reporting that the copilot door opened on takeoff, and he tried to return to the airport. I’m […]

2012 – N27TR – Alex Rhodius – Velocity SE/RG – Villa Canas, Argentina – 0

Apparently Alec’s airplane lost power. I think I saw them looking for a new canard on the Reflector as well. On February 28, 2012, about 2140 universal coordinated time, a Ragonese Velocity, United States registration N27TR, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a loss of engine power near Villa Canas, Argentina. The foreign […]
