So did it crash or just run off the runway?

It was a crash, it’s just off the runway.

It looks like a Glassair, which is an experimental category kitplane. From the photo, it doesn’t look like a crash, rather a runway mishap.

It does look like a Glasair. I can’t see any gear down, maybe a gear up.

Well no wonder.. When I was hitting a bucket at Buchanan there was all kinds of craziness with emergency vehicles heading to the airport, though I never saw the plane. I’m glad everyone’s ok. 🙂
