CESSNA 525 CITATION CJ1
The Cessna CitationJet/M2/CJ series (Model 525) are light business jets built by Cessna and part of the Citation family. Launched in October 1989, its first flight was on April 29, 1991, FAA certification was awarded on October 16, 1992, first delivery happened on March 30, 1993, and by June 2017, 2,000 of all variants have been delivered. Powered by two 1,900 lb Williams FJ44s, it uses the Citation II’s forward fuselage with a new carry-through section, straight wing, and T-tail. The basic model was updated with the CJ/CJ1/M2 names, it was stretched in the CJ2/CJ2+ delivered since 2000, then further in the CJ3/CJ3+ delivered from December 2004 and finally in the CJ4 delivered since 2010.
This particular CJ1 is seen landing at the Ocean County Airport and per protocol, it is forbidden to film or photograph the airplane when its passenger(s) are nearby. The second part featuring the crew firing up the jet was allowed, and to do so, I set the camera on a table and hoped I got the jet (apologies for it not being centered). Part three features the jet departing for points unknown at the time.
