The Cessna 551 Citation II/SP jet was practicing approaches and landings at Siegerland Airport, Germany.
According to local authorities, the aircraft touched down short of runway 13, causing the main landing gear to collapse. A fuel leak from the left wing caused a fire as the aircraft slid to a stop on the runway. The fire was apparently put out quickly.
