Circumstances:
During the takeoff roll from runway 36 at Houston-Executive (Brookshire) Airport, the pilots rejected takeoff and the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance. It overran, lost its undercarriage and came to rest 500 metres past the runway in an open field, bursting into flames. All 21 occupants evacuated safely, among them two were slightly injured. The aircraft was totally destroyed by a post crash fire. It was reported by the NTSB that the aircraft did not fly for a period of 10 months, that braking marks were found on a distance of 1,200 feet and that light smoke was coming out from both engines during the takeoff roll.
