March 15, San Antonio, Texas / Cessna 402


At 22:08 CST, a Cessna 402C left runway 3 at the San Antonio International Airport during the landing roll. The pilot of the Part 135 cargo flight was not injured. The pilot was on short final when another aircraft was cleared for takeoff. He continued the approach, but touched down fast and opted to go around. On the second try, the airplane touched down and began pulling to the left. The pilot was unable to make the taxiway for which he was aiming, and the airplane exited the runway and the left wing struck taxiway and runway edge lights. The left main landing gear tire with the brake disc and brake pads was found intact 100 feet before the airplane came to rest.
