On March 14, 2020, about 1600 mountain standard time, a Raytheon Aircraft Company Hawker 800XP, N100AG, was substantially damaged after veering off the runway and impacting a sign at the Scottsdale Airport, Scottsdale, Arizona. The pilot and co-pilot were not injured. The airplane was being operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight.

The pilot stated that the flight departed from Roger, Arkansas about 1315 with the planned destination of Scottsdale. After an uneventful flight, the pilot made a stabilized approach to runway 21. Upon landing, the airplane touched down on the runway centerline in light and variable winds. The pilot recalled that the touchdown felt normal. During the landing roll, the airplane began to veer to the right and the pilot added left rudder in an effort to correct. Despite his attempts of full left rudder deflection, the airplane continued to veer off the runway. The airplane continued off the runway surface and encountered large rocks located between the runway and taxiway. The airplane collided with runway lights and a sign puncturing the left wing and resulted in substantial damage; the engines both sustained foreign object damage from the rocks.

The pilot opined that the loss of control was a result of the nosewheel steering wheel not being aligned correctly.
