NetJets Citation Destroyed in Overrun Accident

The two crew and four passengers escaped injury after their NetJets Citation 560 (N397QS) went off the end of the runway after landing, crossed a highway and caught fire. At press time, it wasn’t clear exactly when or how the post-crash fire started, but it consumed all of the jet, except for the tail, the two engines and a portion of the nose. The accident occurred on the afternoon of May 5 at Real County Airport (49R), a privately owned, public-use facility in Leakey, Texas, about 80 mi northwest of San Antonio. Real County is at an elevation of 1,640 ft msl and has a single asphalt runway 3,975 ft by 50 ft. There is no weather reporting capability at Real County, but weather at the nearest reporting facility, Hondo Municipal Airport, about 35 mi southeast, was reported as dry, wind variable at 3 kt and visibility 8 mi. The airplane was coming from Houston. An official with the local sheriff station said that the principal passenger had been flown into Real County Airport on eight previous occasions without any incidents. The NTSB is investigating the accident, the first in which a fractional jet has been totally destroyed
