    Low speed accident good for survivability.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Apparently, they ran off the end of the runway after landing. In what you can see of the burned wreckage, the left engine is clearly visible.

    With the thrust reverser STOWED. Not good.

    I’ll bet he was drafting another plane while he was going down the runway, in an attempt to get ahead of it

    Rolled off the runway after landing.

    Was Dale piloting his own plane?

    The pilot should know to land on the first half of the runway, not the last half. My parents always made a point to try to touchdown "on the numbers."

    Never mind, it seems it does, or are at least available.
