TSWM P-40 damaged in landing accident

The P-40M restored to flying condition by the Tri-State Warbird Museum was damaged in a landing accident. The aircraft was flown by 50 year-old Paul Redlich, President of the Tri-State Warbird Museum, when the engine blew a piston. With smoke and oil coming from the engine, Redlich managed to bring the aircraft back to Clermont County Airport but overshot the runway.

The 1943 P-40 slid off the runway, crashed through a fence and came to a halt on a nearby road. Nobody was injured in the incident, but the aircraft suffered some damage.
