  1. This was more than just a simple gear collapse. I was inbound to land at M54 and had to divert - airport was closed for 3-4 hours. A fellow pilot who witnessed the crash said that the aircraft came in very low and clipped the fence well beyond the threshold of 19 which broke the nosegear. He said that a young guy was in the left seat and an older gentleman was in the right seat.

  2. Yep. The furrows in the grass tell the tale, for sure. Good thing it was the north end, since the south end is Interstate 40.
