Plane overshoots runway at Montauk Airport

Everybody makes mistakes but if you do it in an airplane and fail to deal with it people can get hurt. There's nothing especially dangerous about Montauk Airport. I guess this pilot failed to realize, or accept, or process the cues that he was either too fast, too high, or both, until way too late, maybe because he had passengers aboard and he didn't want to look bad to them by going around when he still had the speed and altitude to do it, which is an acknowledgement that he'd screwed up the approach. With a wing sheared off, lucky there was no fire." Aug 31, 10 2:39 PM

From Reporter At The Southampton Press, To Award-Winning Author

Scott was one of our best reporters during my era at the Press. Glad to know he's doing so well and sorry to have been out of town for his visit here. Glad the tough editor stuff worked well for him. Today I'd probably be arrested." Sep 5, 18 6:04 PM
