Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Executive/Corporate

On May 5, 2021, about 1033 eastern daylight time, an Israel Aerospace Industries LTD Gulfstream G150, N22ST, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Ridgeland-Claude Dean Airport (3J1), Ridgeland, South Carolina. The two pilot and three passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 executive/corporate flight.

According to the pilot, he conducted a preflight inspection with no anomalies noted and the first leg of the trip was completed without incident. On the second leg of the trip, he was performing a visual approach to runway 36 at 3J1. The copilot had completed the before landing checklist and lowered the landing gear. The pilot stated that the airplane touched down normally, about 700 to 1,000 ft beyond the runway threshold at a speed between 120-128 knots. He applied brakes and thrust reversers but did not observe an indication that the spoilers deployed. He further recalled that the brakes and thrust reversers were not slowing the airplane. He increased thrust reverser input and asked the copilot to apply “full brakes.” The airplane subsequently overran the departure end of the runway, traveled through the grass and came to rest in a wetland marsh.

After the airplane came to rest, the pilot secured the engines while the copilot performed the shutdown procedures, the crew and passengers exited the airplane through the forward entry door and right overwing emergency exit.

Postaccident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed substantial damage to the forward fuselage, right and left wings.

The airplane’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and the engines digital electronic engine controls (DEECs) were recovered and retained for download.

The airplane was recovered and retained for further examination.
