    Definitely did not skid. We watched the whole event happen. It was backfiring prior to hitting the runway. It then bounced in the runway & attempted to get into the air again (like many planes here will do if they landing isn’t smooth-they circle back & land smoothly)…this plane began to ascend & then we watched it abruptly turn to the left & head back to the ground before the accident. My husband was there with the pilot (mostly he was pretty shook & appeared to take most of the impact & passengers until police & medics arrived.
