I don’t know much about it. I don’t think anybody was hurt. I was told it was a stall while practicing short field takeoffs. Plane hit off the end of the runway and skidded across the ramp.

I don't know the plane or owner. I heard he was a new owner doing transition training.

Wow...good thing no one was fueling at that time.  Imagine sitting in the restaurant there watching this unfold...yikes!  Glad all are ok.

It is amazing it got that far and didn't take out any other airplanes, either parked or taxiing. I was up flying when it happened.

They have been doing a lot of repaving on the ramp lately so most of the planes were moved to the north 40 and haven't moved back yet.

That will buff out.

I know - not to make light but no one is hurt... with the two of them standing around looking at that wing I can just see the bubble text above one of their heads saying, I think it might be bent.  Do you think it’s bent?

So much for the transition training and flight review. Perhaps a forgiving, fixed gear, Cirrus would have been a better choice. :ph34r:

1 bounce ok, 2 bounces, go around, 3 bounces and well... this is what happens.

Doesn’t sound like THAT was the scenario though...

Glad the ramp was clear of activity and appears only metal bent.  As someone that ALSO had his only incident while under instruction I feel for the pilot.  That is one STEEP friggin’ learning curve.  

Definition of a BAD DAY...

At least it's a newer model. Hopefully it's worth fixing and not destined for spare parts.

New wing, new engine, new prop...it’s gonna be close.

Maybe there was a Comanche 400 taxiing to the fuel pump, and he didn't want to wait an hour for him to refuel...

At least there’s a good service center on the field. But how did it get all that way sideways from the runway to the pumps? That’s a good distance.

How do you log that in the flight review section?

If you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing. If you use the airplane the next day, it's an outstanding landing.

Nobody hurt, great news. New owners pride and joy heavily damaged. Totally sucks. Making jokes is a little harsh don't you think.

The white and red hangar in the third picture is an MSC. Chandler Aviation

The owner of Chandler Aviation flys a Comanche.
