Descripción:
A Cessna 680A Citation Latitude, N8JR, was destroyed by fire when it suffered a runway overrun and crossed an airport fence after landing at Elizabethton Municipal Airport (0A9), Tennessee, USA. The pilots were not injured. The three passengers, NASCAR Racer Dale Earnhardt Jr, his wife and daughter, sustained minor injuries.
The aircraft made a hard landing on runway 24, a 1380 m (4530 ft) long runway. The airplane bounced twice, then continued airborne down runway 24 until it touched down a third time with about 1000 ft of paved surface remaining. The right main landing gear collapsed and the outboard section of the right wing contacted the runway shortly after the third touchdown. The airplane departed the paved surface beyond the runway 24 departure end threshold, through an open area of grass, down an embankment, through a chain-link fence, and up an embankment, coming to rest on the edge of Tennessee Highway 91.
After the airplane came to a stop, the flight crew secured the engines and assisted the passengers with the evacuation. The main entry door was utilized to exit the airplane. A postaccident fire was in progress during the evacuation.
