Gear collapse, new, only had 23 hours on it.

Is that a fuel spill? :open_mouth:

Oh yeah, don’t worry about that. It’s a Beechjet thing…(Raytheon’s standard response for any really strange issue. Also, “That can’t happen”)

Yeah some fuel spilled but that was some foam here also.

They drained the rest off into a barrel.

The gear didn’t lock when it went down. FAA guys did a vid showing that. Raytheon and flight options must be glad that it wasn’t a well known incident :stuck_out_tongue:

Screenshots from a video.

How it would’ve been when it landed.
