Yulgibar Pastoral Company Cessna 550 Citation Bravo Bizjet VH-FGK Veers off Runway at Lismore Airport Friday

The Australian Safety Transport Bureau (ASTB) has released a statement confirming that an investigation will be launched into an incident involving Yulgibar Pastoral Company Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-FGK at Lismore Airport on Friday 25 September.

"During the take-off run, the flight crew detected a control issue and rejected the take-off," the ATSB says.

"The aircraft subsequently veered off the runway.  No one was injured and the aircraft sustained minor damage.  As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview the flight crew, obtain an engineering report and gather additional information."

VH-FGK is a regular visitor to CQ and Rockhampton in particular and to see it sitting rather forlornly in a paddock is a not nice.
