Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
A Cessna 560 Citation Ultra, N391QS, sustained substantial damage when the right wing contacted runway 36 during a landing at the Lakeland Airport/Noble F. Lee Memorial Field (ARV), near Minocqua-Woodruff, Wisconsin, USA. The airplane subsequently departed the runway and impacted a snow bank.
The operator reported that the airplane's nose landing gear wheel assembly and nose landing gear strut fork separated from the aircraft. The right side nose landing gear door separated from aircraft and there was damage to the radome, fuselage structure aft of nose landing gear well, right wing inboard flap panel and attaching structure, right wing upper and lower surfaces, and right wing tip.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Captain's failure to maintain adequate airspeed during the landing which resulted in a stall/mush. Factors were the gusty conditions, the snowbank in the safety area next to the runway, and the runway light that the airplane struck."
