Citation CJ3 Crashes; All 10 Escape On September 20th, a 2009 Cessna Citation CJ3 caught fire after a gear-related incident upon landing at the Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco, Washington. It is not clear if the gear collapsed on landing or did not deploy for landing. The aircraft was carrying 10 individuals. Textron Aviation suggests that the CJ3 can carry 9 persons in belted positions. That is, two cockpit seats, 6 main cabin seats and a belted lavatory seat if needed. The aircraft involved in the incident was carrying 10 persons and actually landing to pick up another person when the incident occurred. All ten persons escaped the aircraft safely before it was consumed by fire.
