A Sabreliner owned and operated by Compass Acquisitions and Development in Dallas ran off the runway at Brownwood Regional Airport, Texas, on May 9 following an engine failure at V1. The pilot set the nosegear back on the runway but was unable to stop the aircraft before it went off the end of the runway. The airplane traveled another 1,300 feet before finally stopping, according to the NTSB. Damage to the twinjet was “substantial,” but there were no serious injuries to the two pilots and three passengers.
