A Mig 15 or 17 has run off the runway during take off at Little Rock national airort. The pilot reported a loss of power during take off and ran off the end of the runway and across a city street. The pilot had only minor injuries. His name was reported on the news as Toby Goodwin from Texas. The plane does not appear to be severly damaged.

I will try to find out more info later.

Yes it is a Mig 15 Clay, thanks.

I went out to the scene to take a look and try to get some pictures. Unfortunatly, none of the police officers I know were at the scene so I couldn't get closer for some pics. The pilot was lucky to get out with just minor injuries. After leaving the runway, it went through a fence and crossed a roadway. It stopped just short of some railroad tracks that border a drop off to a swamp.

My pictures are the same as on the link above, so no need to post more.
