    I wish reporters wouldn't sensationalize stories like this one. The engine quit (stalled refers to aerodynamics) on take-off and he landed then ran off the end of the runway. Another news source reported that the pilot climbed out and was in good spirits. The NTSB won't even get involved in this one.
