    FCM = Flying Cloud Airport, Eden Prairie, MN

    Best picture is in the Star Tribune article. KSTP title is more accurate.

    I tried to take a photo I could upload here but was too far away, plane is just a big blur; also sun was so bright I couldn't see the screen so was just shooting blind.

    The plan overran the runway by several hundred yards, went through the fence and spun around just before it would have crossed the highway. In the photos its nose is pointed towards the runway it came from.

    The plane was arriving (landing from the west) for an air show this weekend.
