Eyewitness: "When the right wing hit it exploded!" Damn I hate the press and the stupid public. I see the pics and don't seeand exploded wing! Sorry...had to vent after reading the article.

I just watched the KARE newscast and they noted there wasn't a fire. They implied the prop hitting the runway simply sparked as it broke apart.

Channel 9 got video of the landing but have not posted it on their website yet (kmsp.com). There was indeed a large plume of flame upon impact but not an ongoing fire. I wonder how far the outboard starboard prop rolled after it popped off?
