I didn't see this posted anywhere else...

From WTAQ radio news...

GREENVILLE, Wis. (WTAQ) - No one was injured after a private jet went off the runway at the Outagamie County Regional Airport Monday afternoon. The twin-engine plane came to a halt near Highway 76 and the Chaska Golf Course at back of the airport.

Thank goodness everyone made it out safely.

Looks like a G500 or G550, can't quite make out the reg # (it's N5**GA, I think).

edit: By the way, this is a runway overrun, not a crash landing.

Definitely been registered under Gulfstream for awhile now. It's been sitting around the hanger at ATW for a few months with a test flight done here and there.

Well if it was a test flight, at least they were empty. Don't want to do that with some VIP or huge celebrity in the back...

If this can happen to G-V test pilots, it can happen to anybody. Those guys have some serious experience

Plane was N535GA and was owned by Paul Allen.

It's been a rough couple weeks for him. Back on Jan 31, he lost his helicopter (N245AF) in a take-off accident off Octopussy.

Dang, the certificate for N535GA was issued Jan-19 2011 - a brand new G550 on a test flight as GLF16..... looks like it hadn't even been delivered yet.....

What does Gulfstream do at ATW? Avionics? Interiors?



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Interiors for the most part. I first saw this bird back in December @ ATW.On the day of the incident I was on my way to work when I spotted her taxiing to RWY 21 for her ill fated flight, er landing.

I was working when this happened, and no one said anything until we heard firetrucks and first responders driving by but even then I didnt think anything was out of the norm until all the news crews starting pulling up and we got a NOTAM saying 30/12 was closed. Then about 20 min later the Airport Director was walking by in a hurry and he quick told us what had happened. None of our flights were affected but still, it has been a horrible winter and just when it gets nice out at 40 degrees (I'm from Wisconsin, 40 degrees feels amazing right now) with clear and dry runway conditions, we get an accident. I was also working a turn flight when they towed it back to the hangar (which is right behind our gate), they had the thing surround by CFR and all sorts of Gulfstream personel until they parked in the hangar, surrounded it by caution tape and closed up the hangar. By the way, one of the first thing CFR did when they arrived on scene was cover up the N number so when they towed it by, it was still covered up but apparently they didnt do fast enough before some local media snapped some pics lol.

It doesn't look too badly damaged. An uncle of mine saw his new Bonanza do a wheels up landing before his eyes on delivery, a distracted mechanic at the commands is all it took !

edit : I just saw the photo took from the front where is looks like the left main gear gave up, so it doesn't look as good as I thought.

Katwspotter : what damage did you notice ?
