A Cessna Citation II registered to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency and operated by Stevens Aviation was destroyed in a daytime landing accident at Greenwood County Airport (KGRD) in South Carolina on November 17. During rollout, a deer crossed the active runway and collided with the aircraft’s left wing, tearing open the fuel tank and igniting a fire that left only the nose of the aircraft intact. The two crewmembers escaped unharmed.
