The Lancair IV caught my attention because it's quite a hot rod so I started to look up some info on it. AT the bottom of the Wiki page, it says that according to the NTSB, there have been 19 crashes resulting in 17 fatalities. I'm guessing this is an unusually high number. Does anyone know the reason for this? Does the Lancair IV have some nasty handling characteristics? or does it just not protect its occupants very well in a crash? Is there a site where more info can be found?
