End of the run for Mustang

Posted 14 May 2017 · Add Comment

Production of the Cessna Citation Mustang entry-level business jet has ended after a 12-year run.

Textron Aviation confirmed the final production Mustang has rolled off the factory floor and will be delivered in the coming weeks.
The world's first entry-level business jet, which was introduced to rave reviews in 2002, was manufactured at the company's plant in Independence. But sales faltered after the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009 and never recovered.
472 of the five-passenger, 1,200-nautical-mile range jets were delivered between 2005 and 2016, according to data from the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. Textron said it would continue to provide service support for the Mustang and its owners.
