The pilot tried to land the plane at Lamar Airport after some fire warnings went off in the cockpit. When the pilot, Julian Clay, realized he wouldn't be able to stop before hitting the end of the runway, he ejected, only suffering minor injuries. After the ejection the plane ran off the runway and split in two. This was the second ejection of this pilot, already ejecting from #86-0325.
