Happened just a little while ago. No word on injuries. Apparently stalled during takeoff and broke in two on impact.

Just for clarification, was this an aircraft belonging to Premier Jet Aviation, or was this a Beechcraft Premier?

It was Jack Roush's Premier. I saw most of it until it disappeared behind some planes. He appeared to be at high alpha, way behind the power curve, and then went into what appeared to be a 45-60 degree bank. Wing hit first, jet spun around 180 degrees or so, and the rear section of the fuselage broke off. No fire. I watched the pilot walk out (very bloody) and heard that the sole passenger was ok.

The Premier is a pretty easy to fly airplane for a single owner-pilot, but it can bite you...IMO it's an easy jet to "get slow" on you if you're not paying attention on final.

Lucky man or horrible pilot. You decide. Just because you have money and an interest in aviation does not make you the best person to be flying the airplane. I also wish him a speedy recovery.

Well, to be fair, I think it'd be fine for him to be flying these airplanes with a safety pilot who knows what he's doing.

You start to wonder how many crashes someone can survive from. Good to hear Roush and the passenger were able to walk away. My suggestion to Roush would be to have an another pilot fly your planes!

N6JR was the reg. Man, I really hate to hear this. Mr. Roush was very nice to me when I asked to take photos of his jet in Lebanon, TN last year. All of the crew were awesome as well. A photo I have of it in better days. FWIW, Mr Roush is a HUGE aviation fan. He also owns a P-51 Mustang that he hangars in Michigan.

Good article about JR and his Premier here: http://www.flyingmag.com/pilot-reports/jets/its-all-about-speed

By the way before everyone criticizes his skills, JR had 3500 hours in his Cessna CJ, 800 hours in his Premier, and also flies a P-51.

Notice how the fuselage is also cracked just ahead of the windscreen. One thing I remember is how long the engine/engines were running after impact. They must have been running for 3 minutes or so. I suspect Roush was knocked out and thus, could not cut off the fuel and shut things down right away.

Face cuts tend to bleed a whole lot. He'll be fine. You lose a lot more than that during a standard blood donation. Though, the fire crew really should be wearing gloves.

I'm not knocking his "skills" at all. A good pilot knows when to keep an extra set of eyes in the cockpit, no matter how many hours he has. Yes, this sounds like a totally honest mistake--but it could have been prevented by taking along a "seat-warmer" in the right hand side. And it's lucky this honest mistake didn't take his life. Heck, flying into Oshkosh during AirVenture time is stressful enough in a Cherokee. Do it in a high-performance jet aircraft, get a little behind the eight-ball, and it's a recipe for disaster.

I'm not saying he's a bad pilot--I'm just saying he probably doesn't fly enough (and concentrate on the "flying" part) to be single-pilot proficient in a jet certified to operate in the stratosphere at 450kts. It's not any "one" thing.

I'd say he'll at least get a 709 ride out of this...

I believe this was at least then 2nd incident of the day. From what I've heard, something else managed a gear up landing earlier in the day. And, I'm sure the Premier is far from the last airplane that will be damaged over the course of Airventure.

Saw my first fatal accident happen back at Oshkosh in 2007...two P-51's landing in formation contacted; the trailing bird flipped over and crunched the canopy on the ground--hard. It was a surreal moment seeing it happen...morbidly I think my first thought was "yep, he's dead." Surreal.
