Default G550 off runway ATW

Can anybody confirm a 550 went off the departure end on landing at ATW?

Confirmed-
The aircraft was in the production test phase, and was built for Paul Allen.

This is just what I have heard up until now-- so a little speculation!!

Apparently hydraulic failure on short final, and captain elected to land instead of run check lists... landed, no brakes. you see end result. Not sure how accurate that is, it is just what I have heard-- I was not in the cockpit, and I am trying not to monday morning qb.

I know the pilots on that one as well...
