Narrative:
On January 11 1999, during a local check flight for the new owner-pilot, as the aircraft was descending through about 150 feet during the final stage of a visual approach to Runway 27 at Frankfurt Egelsbach Airport, Egelsbach, the pilot 'pulled the throttles back to ground idle.' The check pilot immediately moved the throttles forward again but meanwhile the aircraft had developed a high rate of descent and it touched down very hard on the threshold of Runway 27 wherein the nose gear and left main landing gear broke off.

The accident happened at night. No injuries reported to the crew of two. C of A expired April 17 1999, and the aircraft was permanently withdrawn from use as damaged beyond economic repair. However, registration N95MJ was not cancelled by the FAA until April 12 2013 - 14 years later
