Certainly seems that the crew are OK (apart from their encounter with mesquite shrubs/trees). :thumb:

Serial (from the slideshow) is 05-6209/RA.

Strange looking "debris field",for a relatively small aircraft!.....glad crew seem to have gotten out relatively unscathed.

The right debris field if it hit in a fairly flat, relatively high speed impact.

The engine looks to have detached and made its own piece of field too.
