  1. couldn't stop in time on a 5,000 foot runway? How much time do you need?

  2. Part 135? seriously would do such a mistake as an on demand charter?

    1. Says it was a part 91 ops under the description.Google doesn’t bring anything up for the LLC, probably your typical LLC creation to stay anonymous and have business trips to the Bahamas.

  3. Better decision would have been to execute a missed approach! Why do so many try to salvage a landing when too high or fast?

  4. Nothing to see here. Just another tax avoiding one percenter in an airplane that he should not be flying. Of course we will be the ones paying.

    1. and the owner LLC OF THAT TAIL NUMBER requested anonymity from flightaware tracking.
      I flew into KLZZ Lampasas TX that day. there was a Strong east wind all day, about 060/15G20, slightly favoring a northerly runway on landing. I would be curious to know if the pilot was landing 36 or 18 at KGTU. GTU Class D CT is 7am local to sunset. Landing incident is neat sunset. Be interesting to know if pilot came in on active CT or as uncontrolled on a runway not favrable to wind.

    2. And you know the owner is tax avoiding how? Based on an LLC? You do realize that is a legal business charter that has nothing to do with hiding from paying taxes and instead is protection from frivolous lawsuits, right?

  5. Actually, ADS-B shows the flight originated from Dallas Love field and landed at a private airfield, Cross Country Estates Marshall Airfield 07TS, East of Georgetown, TX on Rwy 35 at 22:54Z (17:54 LT). This is a 2500' grass strip.

    Airport info:

    1. 104 kt ground speed over the fence into a 2500' grass strip? Sporty!

    2. 700’ AGL on downwind, didn’t really seem to start descending until he was on base, right as he was already crossing extended final. Overshot, dove, and never really stabilized. Wind and weather don’t seem to factor much, if anything they helped, as his indicated speed was likely several knots higher.

    3. Probably a low time PPL that barely passed his ticket then brought this bird.
