NASCAR Team Owner

The Moment He Lost Control

7/28/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained several photos of the moments before and after NASCAR team owner Jack Roush crashed his airplane yesterday in Wisconsin ... a crash Roush was lucky enough to walk away from.

Jack Roush - Plane Crash
In the photos -- which were taken around 6:15 PM on Tuesday at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh -- you can see the plane veer to one side while attempting to land ... and then violently crash.

Roush -- who's the owner of Roush Fenway Racing -- and his only passenger Brenda Strickland were both transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Incredibly, this is the second time Roush has crashed a plane and lived to tell about it ... back in 2002, his aircraft ended up in a lake in Alabama, where he was rescued by a retired Marine who lived close by.

I´m with #12. This guy should quit flying before he kills someone. Karma is sending him messages. He's already received two of them. He should't wait for the third because it might not end so happily.

I tend to think that to get where Jack Roush is pretty well means he's not a dumazzzz, but it's quite probable that to get where you're at (on TMZ making statements like that about people you don't know.) would take a total dumazzzz!!!

Okay, I am probably reading too many Mel Gibson stories because the guy in the pic looks like an older version of him lol. I think this is a sign TMZ invades and rots your brain :P

Well at least you didn't see the pics that someone tweeted of him exiting the airplane covered in blood - it was nasty. We left before the crash, but I saw a ton of the photos on Twitter - if you search under #OSH10.

He's not a menace to the air - these things happen and it doesn't mean it was his fault.

Everyone at EAA Airventure is cheering him on, hoping they both make a speedy recovery.

LOL Yea I used to live near there, and worked for a rental car company. The EAA Fly-In has crashes EVERY year. Most are not as lucky as this gentleman...

You generally have to book 2 years in advance for hotels, cars, capsites and such it's a very popular and fantastic event. :*) Worth going to at least once!

He wasn't trying to land - he had taken off and the plane reportedly stalled out, so he ended up doing a hard landing.

With over 700,000 people in attendance, yeah, crashes happen now and then - but not EVERY year.

Would like to hear to tower recordings. This guy, at 68, is too old to be flying. When was his last medical and at that age, the FAA should require yearly check rides.
