Default Video - GA Accident, McKinney TX

Airport identifier is T31. The airplane runs off the end of the 3000' runway, through the boundary fence, and onto a public road, colling with a car. Everyone is OK!

Registration is 2022, with a 2002 manufacture date. New owner, perhaps. The video states that he reports reverse thrust as "not working."

Looks like an expensive problem.

Must be a known defect, I don't remember it ever working, the few times that I flew one.

Lancair IV-P with turbine powerplant?

They've been built with Walters and Pratts. Given that it's a homebuilt, I'm not sure how much of a known defect might apply, as they are individually constructed.

Looks like a quirky little airport...The runway is actually 4352 ft, but the northern 1350 ft is turf. There's also some interesting comments involving, among other things, visibility due to runway slope and the presense of vintage aircraft that tend to utilize the grass.
