  1. This was NOT a landing incident but rather an aborted T/O caused by the frantic calls to "abort, abort" from a part 135 jet, sitting at the opposite end of a 6200 foot runway, not paying attention to the CTAF until the last moment. This was a totally avoidable incident. The Baron had one of its wings torn off as it slid backwards on touch down with the gear up. The Baron was destroyed. It was an absolute miracle a fire didn't ensue, given the plane was full of fuel and that no one was injured. I eagerly await the NTSB report on this one, but somehow, given the root cause just may be the FAA's requested removal of a taxiway, for safety, of course, led to all of the back-taxi maneuvers that ultimately lead to this accident. For the record, this airport never had an inadvertent runway incursion, which was the reason cited for the removal of the mid-field taxiway.
