Cessna Citation X Visits Granbury, TX

Posted by on June 7, 2013

It’s not that often that a Jet of this size flys into Granbury.   With our small 3800′ runway, this was a very light load for sure.  This is Cessna’s biggest jet that they produce.  The Citation X.   Powered by a couple of Rolls Royce Turbo Fan engines, the Citation will produce 6442lbs of thrust EACH!    That will surely put you back into your seat on takeoff.
