One of the most rewarding events ANN and Aero-TV have participated in over the last year was AIA's extraordinary Team America Rocketry Challenge.

NTSB Prelim Offers Few Clues Into Roush Crash

Potentially Devastating Crash Yielding Few Details At This Point

While the NTSB will, necessarily, need a lot more time before filing a final report, the pictures and other details making themselves known show one thing, conclusively... that this could have been a truly tragic accident --and for reasons well beyond the hazards encountered by those aboard. Pictures and ground track data indicate that the Premier came perilously close to taking a course/energy line that could have severely hazarded people on the ground... and the pictures of nearby photographers running to avoid the approaching jet provide dramatic testimony to the possibilities.

Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (08.16.10)

"A review of amateur video taken at KOSH showed the accident airplane in a left base turn to final for runway 18R. The airplane appeared to overshoot the runway centerline during this turn and then level its wings momentarily before entering a slight right bank simultaneously as the nose of the airplane pitched up. The airplane then turned left toward the runway centerline and began a descent. During this descent the airplane’s pitch appeared to increase until the airplane entered a right bank and struck the grass area west of the runway in a nose down, right wing low attitude." Source: Excerpted from the NTSB Preliminary Report filed in the early stages of the investigation into the probable cause for the crash of Beech Premier N6JR,
