Diagnostics of the airplane’s engine indication and crew alert system (EICAS) indicate that a Cessna Citation X (N750WM) that rolled off the side of a JFK Airport runway April 3 had hydraulic problems, according to the NTSB preliminary report. The WM Aviation-registered jet veered right off Runway 13L and collided with a dirt divider, suffering substantial damage. The crew later reported loss of nosewheel steering, brakes and engine reverse thrust while landing. Neither the pilot nor the copilot reported injuries. The Citation’s cockpit voice recorder was removed and sent to the NTSB offices in Washington for analysis.
