According to the Safety Board, the twinjet (N777VG) “overran the runway during landing and crashed into the woods” at about 8 p.m. last night, killing five. The pilot and one passenger survived with unspecified injuries, according to an FAA preliminary report. FlightAware data shows that the composite-fuselage aircraft was flying in from John Tune Airport in Nashville, Tenn. More details on this crash will be reported in Monday’s edition of AINsafety.
