The pilot of the Raytheon Beech Premier I that overran the runway at Herrera International Airport in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on January 7 told the NTSB that after making a “normal approach and landing” the lift dump spoilers were activated, “but the system failed.” The airplane hit two vehicles, crossed a road and came to rest inverted. The two pilots and two passengers were not injured.
