The NTSB recently released preliminary findings on the April 26 accident in Port Orange, Fla., in which a Cessna Citation CJ3 overran the runway and came to rest in a pond about 600 feet from the end of the hard surface. Investigators said the pilot reported landing “long” (about one-third of the way down the 4,000-foot runway) and then realized he wouldn’t be able to stop on the runway. A weather observation at the time of the mishap indicates there was a four-knot tailwind.
