Dropping Likes Flies? Another Cirrus Vision Jet Down

Successful Chute Deployment Dumps S/E Jet Into Pond

With increasing frequency, the questionable record of the Cirrus Vision Jet becomes all the more questionable. 

Friday morning, a Cirrus Vision Jet, N15VJ, (SN #215) went down shortly after takeoff from the Indianapolis Regional Airport. Whatever occurred to convince the pilot that this was a proper course of action took place early in the flight and barely a mile off the end of Runway 25. Video of the late 2020 certified aircraft, under the canopy, is already on social media, and in one there seems to be a smoky trail above the aircraft that might point to powerplant issues. The Hancock County Sheriff's Office reported to local media that the plot blamed engine problems for the chute deployment. The aircraft's path terminated in a small pond off Indianapolis's Mt. Comfort Road, just North of Interstate 70. 

Titled to Chrome Vision Jet, of Lewes, De; N15VJ, was on its way to Greensboro-Greene County Regional Airport in GA. Flight tracking software suggests the aircraft only gained 1400 feet or so before what appeared to be a clean parachute deployment and a good unreefed configuration thereafter. Local reports suggest that there were no injuries and it appears that the aircraft is actively involved in commercial operations.
