from what I heard it appears it happened during taxi...not sure if it was from the high speed off the runway or on the main taxiway itself...

Glad everyone is ok

Does Great Lakes have a history of mishaps?

I don't keep a running total in my head or anything, but since I've been on this board I don't remember Great Lakes seemingly having been in the news too many times (if ever before) for an incident.

Does a gear collaping on any aircraft surprise me?
Yes.

Everybody at Great Lakes better prepare themselves for another "blood letting" memo.
