Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The twin engine airplane was completing a flight from Statesville, North Carolina, to Elizabethton, Tennessee, carrying three passengers and a crew of two. After touchdown on runway 24, the airplane was unable to stop within the remaining distance, overran, went through a fence and came to rest in flames on a road, about 650 feet past the runway end. All five occupants were able to evacuate the cabin before the aircraft would be completely destroyed by fire. Runway 24 is 4,500 feet long with a displaced threshold (LDA is 4,100 feet). Passengers were the US Nascar racer Dale Earnhardt, his wife and daughter.
