from General Aviation News

The pilot reported that he was returning from an air race competition and that, about 15 minutes into the flight, he heard a "thump" and thought the Lancair Legacy had struck a bird. He then heard a second "thump" along with a "rattle and vibration," so he found a place to make a forced landing. While preparing to land, he heard an "explosion" and then saw flames by his left foot and black smoke fill the cockpit. The pilot made a forced landing to a field near Livingston, Texas, and exited the airplane before it was destroyed by fire. more
