OSHKOSH, Wisc. - New photos obtained by TMZ.com show the plane crash that injured NASCAR team owner Jack Roush.

Roush, an aviation buff, was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., this week. His Beechcraft Premier business jet crashed while landing at around 6:15 in the evening.

The TMZ photos show the plane banking to the right just feet above the ground, then plowing into the ground, sending dirt spewing.

Roush, who owns several aircraft, was hospitalized in serious but stable condition after walking away from the crash.

Brad Kesselowski was seen leaving the scene very shortly after the crash. It is said to have been Ford powered...samD

I don't know about you guys, but i have really slowed down from past years, and the days of living life "out there" are just past stuff.. guys like Roush..(this is his second walk away right) and Branson, and Steve Fossett .missing outside of Reno.. They push the envelope as opposed to those of us who just let life pass.. Glad he walked away..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

i believe the saying is"if your not living life on the edge,your taking up to much space" that said,i believe it was his first walk away,Hedrick racing had that big plane crash a couple years ago,i don't remember if the cat-in-the-hat was onboard and walked away.Of course i'm probably wrong.

Yep, 2nd. Landed upside down in a small lake about 4 years ago and some guy swam out and saved him. I can't remember where, but it was close to one of the tracks. Good one on the Keselowski sam.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

"There are old pilots and bold pilots but there are no old, bold pilots", I think it may be time for Roush to hang up his wing's as walking away from two is pushing it, next time he may be a smouldering hole in the ground.

yep

i had forgotten about him in the lake,i would have to disagree that he should give up flying though,if you enjoy doing something stick with it,I've totaled 2 motorcycles and one car,I'm not about to give up driving either type vehicle just because of that.
