PICTURES: NTSB releases first shots of crashed Gulfstream

The US National Transportation Safety Board has released the first pictures of the accident site of the Gulfstream G650 test aircraft that crashed at Roswell, New Mexico on 2 April, killing its four occupants.

The aircraft, N652GD, was departing to the south-west on Runway 21 at Roswell International Air Centre airport. It had been performing tear-drop arrivals with downwind landings intended to stress the brakes at the airport's 4,000m (13,000ft) runway.
