Business Jet Loses Door In Flight

Challenger Jet Lands At Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood

The FAA is investigating an incident involving a Canadair CL600 jet (similar aircraft pictured in file photo) traveling from Opa-Locka to Pompano Beach, Florida, when it was diverted and landed safely at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said "An airport vehicle met the aircraft as it exited the runway and escorted it to Bombardier Aviation (a maintenance facility on the airport) where it was discovered that the main cabin door was missing.”

Air traffic control audio recorded by LiveATC.net captured controllers then ordering takeoffs on runway 9L so it could be inspected. "Before your next arrival or departure, I need to do a runway inspection. I just had an aircraft (that) lost a door. Want to make sure nothing is on the runway," a ramp controller radioed the control tower.

According to CNN affiliate WSVN, which shot video of it being removed by a tow truck, the door, with retractable boarding stairs attached, crashed through trees, bouncing onto a golf course near Hallandale Beach. The golf course was closed at the time.
