Saturday 20 Sep - Club President informed me, while flying his turbine Viper jet at the airfield, he had a hard landing just
short of the east runway. He immediatly shut it down but it still caught fire. He and VP Jay Cid went to put the fire
out but the winds were too much and they could see the fire was getting out o f control. Eric called 911 and the
Peyton Fire Dept soon arrived and put the fire out. Good thing the grass was already short! The jet was a total loss.
Fires still can happen. Always remeber to call 911 for any airfield emergencies!
