An airplane hit a fence after a mechanic failed to lock the brakes at Henderson Executive Airport on Friday afternoon, July 28.
At around 1:30 in the afternoon., a mechanic was quite busy doing maintenance on a Citation X, a midsize business jet plane with eight executive seats, but failed to lock the brakes on the wheels of the aircraft, McCarran International Airport spokesperson Linda Healey said.
The flying machine rolled down a levee and hit a fence, causing significant damage to the plane, Healey added.
The aircraft, however, had not been scheduled for takeoff on that day and did not have passengers, Healey said.
The plane was moved at 4:30 P.M., and operations at the Henderson airport were not affected by that human-error incident.
The jet plane belongs to NetJets, and it’s a 2001 Citation 750 X. No one was hurt.
