Looks quite a heavy impact, hope occupants escaped without injury. May have been a trip through the fence it seems.

Edit: precautionary trip to hospital, hopefully all ok.

I wonder if the engine quit on the climb out and ran out of runway to put it back down on. Overshooting a 1972m runway in a PA28 takes some doing in the traditional sense. I hope the occupants are all ok.

As is often the case, the media have got it wrong. The accident site is 400 m to the side of the runway, nearly abeam the midpoint. It is conceivable that they were going around, or in old-money doing an "overshoot", and that is a term the media heard and misinterpreted. It would not be the first time the media have portrayed a go around as "overshooting the runway". I suspect that misinterpretation of the term is one reason the terminology has long since changed.

Looks like the video has been pulled already!

PA 28 Kemble 4/8/22

The aircraft is in a ditch on the A 429 well south of R/W 08/26; the only useable runway.
It is adjacent to the main road entrance, hangars & many parked airliners.
Difficult to see how it got there without hitting a building or a parked airliner.

Hope they are OK after that - will be interesting notes in the logbook for that arrival

Hope so indeed thanks to cleverly avoiding the line of parked aircraft almost avoiding it, that is, as the starboard wingtip can be seen to contact the nose-gear of the Red Wings aircraft.

It's hard to be sure, given the poor video resolution, but it looks as if the Cherokee's yaw to the right started just after the wing had passed the A321's NLG. I'm not sure there was any contact.

Pretty sure there is contact with the Red Wing's NLG; immediate right yaw, possibly a corresponding change in heading, and definitely liberation of some visible debris (an aileron?).

Jeepers.

I can't see many insurers paying out for damage to an airliner that is about to be broken up anyway.

I think that for the valuable parts, like the landing gear, dismantling is the more appropriate verb

Compensating the little topic drift, albeit not that spectacular an info, anyone doubting whether the Airbus NLG was hit, here you can see chunks of the RH wingtip flying around and one getting lodged into the NLG.
The NLG-hit, certainly prevented the Piper from striking the fence and the parked cars.
