Airplane Accidents in Texas

Crosby, TX – Two Injured in Plane Crash near Dunham Field near Beaumont Highway & Adlong Johnson RdIn the United States, up to 100 plane accidents take place every year. These accidents often have devastating consequences on victims due to the nature of the collisions. Crashing at significant speed from a high altitude is likely to result in severe injuries or death for those on board.

There are several factors that contribute to plane accidents taking place. Weather conditions are one of the most common leading causes of airplane accidents. Turbulence, harsh winds, ice, and problems with visibility can all lead to dangerous situations for pilots. In some cases, such as with severe thunderstorms or hurricanes, it can be nearly impossible to see ahead or travel safely.

Pilot error is another common cause of airplane accidents that we see here in Texas and across the United States. This can range from simple errors made under pressure to more serious errors resulting from intoxication or fatigue. In some cases, pilots may become too focused on one task and fail to notice a developing problem elsewhere in the aircraft.

Mechanical failure can also lead to a life-altering plane accident. This can include anything from engine trouble to problems with control surfaces or navigation systems. In many cases, mechanical failures are due to improper maintenance or design flaws that go unnoticed during testing.
