Written off June 18 1983: sustained engine failure on climb out from Wick Airfield, caused by the failure of the fuel pump, resulting in zero fuel pressure. The pilot attempted to initiate an emergency "straight ahead" landing with the undercarriage retracted.

The aircraft was unable to stop in time to avoid running into a ditch at the airfield perimeter. It then collided with the airfield perimeter fence, slewing around through 180 degrees, and finally came to a halt some 50 yards beyond the airfield perimeter. None of the four persons on board (pilot and three passengers) were injured.

Registration N150CJ belatedly cancelled by the FAA June 27 2012
