  1. Landed short before the threshold where the cable is. I learned how to fly out of a major USAF base in an aero club and we were trained early on to watch those cables on our short landings for the first turnoff. The USAF didn't like we Cessna and Piper prop pilots taking too long getting off the runway while Jet-A burning assets like F-15s and C-5s were waiting for us pipsqueaks to land and get the hell off the active. These cables sit an inch or two above ground on rubber rollers above the ground and the cables themselves are generally 1.5" in diameter. You do not want your gear hitting them in a light aircraft.

  2. Flightaware shows it flying again two days later. Lucky that it was an easy repair. Looks like it may be flown by the flight academy at KFRG.
