NTSB Investigating Elevator Control Anomaly
NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD is investigating "an elevator control anomaly" that occurred Nov. 13 during the flight of an Aero Commander 200D. The aircraft, N28PC, was substantially damaged in flight. The commercial pilot, who was the sole occupant, said five minutes after taking off from the West Houston, Texas Airport in visual meteorological conditions, the aircraft began to vibrate, accompanied by "stick shaking." The pilot reduced power and made an emergency landing at the David Wayne Hooks Memorial Airport near Spring, Texas.
