N50DS, a Bombardier Global 5000, landed short of a runway in the Caribbean islands on December 12 and sustained damage after hitting an airport perimeter fence. Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority flight ops inspector Paul Delisle told AIN that the incident occurred at Vance W. Armory Airport on the island of Nevis and said there were no injuries to crew or passengers. At press time, a spokesman for the FAA said the owner of the airplane, Tampa, Fla.-based First Southeast Aviation, had not yet notified the FAA of the incident although the company is required to do so because the airplane is registered in the U.S.
