P-51 crash landing today

Due to a flame out at a very bad time the P51 made a landing in the bean field 20 feet off the end of the runway.  Analysis is underway to try to determine a cause and assess damages.  Quick guess is the wing will need to be replaced due to landing gear attachment point damage.  More to follow when I have time to work on it. Will be looking at telemetry data as well for info leading to reasons behind the failure.
