Plane crash at Frederick Municipal Airport

A small plane crashed at Frederick Municipal Airport around noon Friday. No one was injured in the crash, according to reports.

A strong crosswind knocked a single-engine plane off its wheels after a safe landing at Frederick Municipal Airport shortly after noon Friday.

While the incident was sent out to police and fire and rescue personnel as a plane crash at the airport, much of the response was quickly called off and emergency medical personnel were not needed as neither of the two men in the aircraft at the time was injured as a result.

The National Transportation Safety Board was notified of the incident, but Maryland State Police handled the initial investigation, said Sgt. Jerimy Tindal, a state police supervisor at the scene. Tindal was not certain whether the NTSB or the Federal Aviation Administration would handle the investigation moving forward.

A man identified by state police as a passenger on the plane said the incident occurred after the plane had landed and was about to come to a stop. The man declined to provide his name, but confirmed that neither he nor the pilot was injured and that the incident, while momentarily alarming, was ultimately not serious.

The man said the plane was an L-60SF Brigadyr that was originally manufactured in Czechoslovakia in 1958 but was registered locally and had originally taken off from the airport for a short flight.

I've seen that with Home Depot and other retailers as well as the Den of Evil. They list items that you know they don't actually sell -- not through their normal channels.

What they may be be doing is just hoping to catch and process the order and then get a commission from the actual vendor.

So yeah, who knows? Maybe it is possible to purchase airplane parts thru Walmart.


Local TV news headline reported as such. Media never wanting to miss opportunity.

“Plane With Nazi Symbols Is Damaged at Maryland Airport”


Is it still possible to get parts for an L-60SF Brigadyr that was originally manufactured in Czechoslovakia in 1958?


Probably on - they seem to have everything... ;-)


Two times now, I have typed Amazon to naturals question. Once yesterday afternoon. It got deleted. Then again last night. It got deleted. Someone else also wrote Walmart. It got deleted.

Looks like the FNP is back to inconsistent moderating. I have a busy Monday planned. But the moderating over the last week has been extremely erratic. If I can fit it on my schedule, I’m going to contact the head editor on the phone. And send an email to every FNP email address listed on this website.’



I saw your posts, as well as the one that mentioned the evil empire (Walmart), in my email and thought they were both hilarious. [cool]

FWIW, I've also had trouble posting a comment under "OK Boomer is Offensive" in the last 2 days. I submitted it 4-5 times. I finally emailed it to So far I've gotten no reply.

Ready for a forum?

Seriously, while I appreciate that the FNP has this comment section, spending time composing comments only to have them rejected or deleted -- with no reason given -- is very frustrating. What's worse is when the trolls succeed in getting an entire thread deleted by posting comments that are against the rules.

"Hey kids! Want to shut down a thread but you are not an FNP monitor? No problem! Just post a bunch of personal attacks and/or racist comments and -- POOF -- all of the comments are deleted!"

Forums do not work that way. Improper posts are deleted and if the user makes a habit of being obnoxious they are banned, but entire threads are *never* summarily deleted. The worst case is that the particular thread is "closed" -- no more comments allowed -- but at least the legitimate posts are saved.


My thoughts exactly, Mr Natural. After my last communication with Georgie, there was much improvement. One of the trolls was throttled way back, and the FNP stopped with the erratic post deletions. That was around 9 to 12 months ago.

But over the last 10-12 days it’s gotten really inconsistent. And legitimate posts got deleted.


I don't know who Georgie is, Plumbum, but when I have problems I contact Geordie.

You may be surprised at the number of kit plane 'pilots' that buy parts for their ''aircraft' at walmart. Not very bright. But, they think they know best. It's ok, just don't take anyone else with you.


Really? Please do tell us just how you have come to learn of all these not-so-bright pilots buying parts at Walmart?

Alice Jones

Yes, really. Observation.

Are you a kit plane pilot, da?


No, I'm not...I'm an airline pilot. That said, I do have many--more than ten--friends that have personal aircraft, hither and yon across the country, all of which follow strict FAA guidelines on part 91 aircraft maintenance protocols. And, while I'm sure they exist, based on my experience, the pilots who are cutting safety corners are few and far between--I have yet to know/meet one. So, again, who are these pilots who are cutting corners at Walmart...and what is your relationship with them? Or, perhaps, is your position about this subject one of mere conjecture?


I can not vouch for what Alice is talking about. But, Walmart online sells just about everything under the sun. I was doing an online search for commercial truck parts, and......Walmart actually had listings for what I was looking for.
