Chinese Gulfstream G200 substantially damaged in landing accident


A Gulfstream G200 owned by Chinese operator Star Jet suffered a landing accident at Yangzhou Taizhou International Airport China on Sunday, May 20.

According to Chinese press reports the 2006-build Gulfstream G200 MSN 134 / B-8129 was operating on a training flight at the time.

The aircraft left the runway on landing and came to rest in a field with its main undercarriage detached.

Images on the Epoch Times website show substantial damage to the wings.

There were no passengers on board the aircraft at the time of the accident.

The airport was closed for several hours and commercial flights were diverted to other airports in the region.

Shanghai-based Star Jet took delivery of the G200 in 2010. The company also operates two Cessna Citation XLS+ business jets, and a single Gulfstream G550 from its base at Shanghai Hongqiao Airport.

There are currently five G200s registered on the mainland Chinese B- register. All except one are based in Shanghai.
