On December 30, 2018, at 1553 Pacific standard time a Piper PA46-350P, N4161X, departed the runway after landing at Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport (MYF), San Diego, California. The private pilot and three passengers were not injured, and the airplane sustained substantial damage. The airplane was registered to MAJ LLC., and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. The local flight departed MYF about 1430. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.

The pilot stated that the landing approach and flare to runway 28R were normal, and the touchdown was smooth. Shortly after the nose landing gear made contact with the ground, the airplane started to pull to the left. He applied corrective control inputs, but the airplane continued to turn left. The airplane then departed the runway surface, and the landing gear collapsed as the airplane entered the dirt verge while traveling sideways.

Both wings and the aft cabin structure sustained substantial damage during the accident sequence, and all occupants were able to egress from the aft cabin door unaided.
