the story i've been told from a friend (who was an eyewitness of the accident and worked for Wyatt) is he went for take off and the jet didn't come up to speed so he killed the engine and applied the brakes to stop, but ran out of runway and slid through the grass and then it burst into flames. the jet had 750 gallons of fuel on board. there 2 tanks on it and only one ruptured. there was literally nothing left of the cockpit area.

the FAA is investigating to see the exact cause of the crash, and we'll see what unfolds.

i'll keep ya'll posted. thanks

My dad works for the FAA as an operations inspector and is a lifetime pilot. Some of the stories that he comes back with are truely heartbreaking. The only consolation that I could possibly offer is that if your friend was like any other pilot I have ever met, he passed away while doing the thing he loved most.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

your right Robertsr. he was doing what he loved.

Wyatt restored and flew vintage warbirds as a hobby. he also worked for Harley Davidson designing prototype aftermarket billet accessories liscensed for HD. he built some very nice custom motorcycles too. some of you might recognize the HD "Biker Blues" bike that was built and the paint on the bike looked like denim blue jeans. i know the Franklin Mint made some diecast models made of this bike. Wyatt was the man that built "Biker Blues" bike. he also gave my dad a diecast model of the bike that he had signed. here's a link to pic of the diecast.
