January 10, Albuquerque, N.M. / Piper Meridian


At approximately 10:57 mountain time, a Piper PA-46T was damaged on landing at Double Eagle II Airport. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The pilot was making an ILS Runway 22 approach but broke out of the clouds to the right of the runway. The pilot attempted to align the aircraft with the runway by banking left, then right, but the right wing struck the runway and the airplane crashed and slid 1,500 feet to a stop. Neither occupant was hurt.
