It's got a parking brake but I'm sure that wasn't the cause.

Glad you and everyone on the plane made it! I live 5 miles away, been across that road many times. Glad the wind was still out of the north, because taking off to the south would have been a much more hairy situation!

Once you catch your breath, I'd be very interested to hear your perspective of the full story of what happened.

This guy like to opine ( sp ) on air accidents.
He eventually has an opinion on this accident at about 3:30. The title is click bait.

He knows how the plane crashed but doesnt know how to put a shirt on, on the wrong side (front to back) or inside/outside

Never mind. Watched the rest. He seems to know it so he can wear it more without washing it.

Once I’m done with interviews with investigators I’ll feel better about sharing it all. I even have a video seconds after jumping out

That was the plan. It was an invitation that was, what I kept telling myself, a lifetime opportunity. Little did I know how ironic that would turn out.

glad it turned out ok for everyone involved.

Talk about "happening at point of no return", flaps not deployed correctly, and/or reverse thrusters not deployed makes me think of "replacement pilots". I am not saying this was the cause, just a casual thought.

I’m definitely going to stay tuned for Kgert’s story. It is an absolute miracle that everybody walked away from that. So when’s the next time you’re going to get on a plane?

I noticed that as well, but cant he still recycle the shirt and put it on correctly?

I'm tunes in for the story. I've flown on that plane and couldn't believe it when I heard that was the plane. I called my dad who I flew on it with and informed him. Glad everyone got out safe. What a blessing. Btw, that sucker was Nice inside! I guess he will get a new one if he decides to continue to fly.

Wow! Thank God you and everybody got out of the plane. I cannot imagine the terror! I'm looking forward to the story when you are able to tell it...may be some time, however, before the lawyers allow it.

That airplane has a takeoff warning system so if that wasnt disabled and the plane wasnt configured correctly for takeoff they would have received a warning
