Earnhardt Plane Incident

Retired NASCAR race driver Dale Earnhardt Jr’s Citation rolled off the end of a Bristol, TN runway. Aircraft caught fire but all passengers and crew escaped.

Just a bad day or has the shortage of qualified pilots in the US left executive operators hiring less experienced flight crews?

The National Transportation Safety Board will send two investigators to examine the crash scene.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s preliminary incident report Friday stated: “AIRCRAFT EXPERIENCED HARD LANDING, BOUNCED, DEPARTED RUNWAY AND CAUGHT FIRE”


Not good on 4500’ runway.
