Circumstances:
The airplane overran the runway after landing on runway 07. The passenger stated that he felt that the approach was "fast" and that the
pilot was "behind the power curve" because of high minimum en route altitudes in the area and that they had to "hustle down" during the
descent. The passenger indicated that the flight crossed the runway threshold "maybe a bit more" that 10 knots above Vref and touched
down about 10 knots above Vref. He said it was not a stabilized approach. Landing distance calculations and other evidence suggest that
the lift dump panels did not extend after landing; however, the investigation did not determine the reason(s) for the lack of lift dump.
No evidence was found of any failures affecting the lift dump or braking systems. Evidence and interview statements reveal that the pilot
flew an unstabilized approach to the runway and landed well above target speed. The high landing speed was result of the pilot's
excessive airspeed on the approach and a tailwind component of about 8 knots. Although the pilot landed the airplane within the
touchdown area, the airplane's speed upon touchdown was about 17 knots above the prescribed speed. The flight's unstabilized approach
and excessive speed should have prompted the pilot to initiate a missed approach.
