Those aircraft are built by Cessna. They are Carbon Fiber and VERY aero-dymanic (ie reduced drag). Unfortunately, an unwary pilot can let their airspeed build-up on final approach and run out of runway. For those who are interested -that is over a 1/2 million plane sitting in the mud right there. Really messes up a pilot's day to do something like that :-)
