The airport is Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey.Unfortunately it appears that the city is going to close KAIY very soon. The AOPA has been trying to keep the field open. A 2,944 ft runway is too short for a Citation - the field is about nine miles from KACY - the main airport for Atlantic City.The video of the plane taxiing in the water with an uncontrolled engine is amazing.

That has to be the craziest mishap video I've seen on the net so far. Does anyone know why/how the engine restarted? That was pretty #### crazy.

Usually on approach the igniters are turned on so that they fire constantly. Most likely the cockpit was left in an as-is state, when they left the aircraft, with every thing set for flight, after they hit the water the batteries were still powered and igniters were still going and it was just a matter of time. They did what they were supposed to do in the event of a flame-out . In this case injesting water.

Sorry, false - The NTSB found the approach plate for KAIY clipped to the yoke in the aircraft afterward.From your link, I quote:"Additionally, the airport diagram for Bader Field, was observed attached to the pilot's control column after the accident. A notation, which read, "airport closed to jet aircraft" was observed on the diagram."

Yes he had the approach plate for Bader clipped to the yoke.He was also in contact with the KACY tower and cleared for landing at KACY. His radios were not tuned to the frequencies on the KAIY plate.He was not only lost but had the wrong airport information.I haven't found the link yet - but he was not a native english speaker from what I've read previously. It's possible he may have not known there were two airports in Atlantic City.

I'm impressed that the FADEC managed to relight the thing with all that water, the engine managed to actually produce power while ingesting that much water, and the horizontal stab survived all that water striking it. That was one tough bird and it just wasn't going down without a fight! :(I know it was written off, but anyone have any idea what became of it after?

Wait, now I'm confused too - Is Bader in the name of both airports as well?At 1544, ATC informed the pilot that "the airport is 12 o'clock and 4 miles." The pilot responded that he had the airport in sight, and the controller then cleared the pilot for a "visual approach at Bader airport."

It wasn't the ACY tower, it was Atlantic City *approach* he was in contact with. Approach handles the regional ATC duties around the local airports - Bader doesn't have an active tower, so the approach controller handled him down to his actual approach to landing.The pilot perhaps thought that 'Bader' was the name of KACY (*Atlantic City International) and continued on his landing, even though he was approaching the wrong field. The approach controller did clear him to land at Bader, and the pilot accepted, even though the pilot's original intent was to land at A.C. International. -Greg

Then why is Atlantic City approach clearing a jet to land at an airport which is marked no jet traffic allowed?And if approach has (1) no idea of airport restrictions and runway lengths, and (2) no authority or responsibiity to tell a pilot his request is not authorized / illegal - then I better stock up on Greyhound and Amtrac tickets.

Some interesting points: Did the pilot mistake Bader for ACY? He had Bader plates on his yoke and acknowledged the Bader clearance but stated on initial contact that he was inbound to ACY. He had a flight plan on file but the report doesn't indicate what destination he filed. Reggie's point is also interesting: ATC understood he wanted AIY, though he stated ACY. They would know from his flight strip that he was a jet, so why did they clear him? I don't believe, though, that ATC is responsible for verifying that it is permissible or appropriate for him to land at a particular airfield. They manage separation. However, they might reasonably have known and advised him.I was stuned that he overflew the airport at 180kts at 200 feet, circling to land. Wow. So much for the traffic pattern. He also turned into traffic landing on the opposite end of th rwy and was not in touch with local traffic. This had trouble all over it.

Wait a minute. I thought the pilot was in there, trying to taxi it out of the water. (which would be a crazy thing to do, btw). You are telling me that there was no pilot in the plane when the engines re-lit?RhettAMD 3700+ powered by Gerbil wheel + gerbil, eVGA 7800GT 256, ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 gigs Corsair TWINX, blah blah, etc. etc.

No, he landed against traffic and with the wind. As I recall reading, there was another ac in the pattern for landing at the opposite end. Either way, i thought standard practice was to overfly 50 - 1000 feet above pattern altitude and then decend and join the pattern.

the accident report indicated that the left condition level was in Cutoff but the right was bent over in low idle, as I recall.
