A 1975 MiG-21MF Fishbed overshot the runway at Flying Cloud Airport in Minnesota, after its braking parachute broke loose. The aircraft departed the runway and suffered some damage when it was went down an embankment, coming to a stop leaning on its nose and port wing. The pilot suffered some minor injuries which were treated on the spot.

Based on the available photos, it does not seem the aircraft suffered extensive damage.
