Learjet Slides Off the Morristown Airport Runway

April 04, 2022

GEORGIA - According to an online article published on, the Morristown Airport was closed after a Learjet from Georgia slid off of the runway last Saturday morning.*  

Fortunately, all four occupants inside the aircraft were safely evacuated, Morristown Police Captain Stuart Greer reported.  Local law enforcement, rescue crews, and firefighters answered the call at approximately 11:20 in the morning.  The crash closed down the airport.

The airplane that was flying from Fulton County Executive Airport close to the City of Atlanta suffered "significant damage" when it departed runway 23 and then came to rest in a runway safety area.  The accident caused the airplane's wings to detach from the jet, verified by Corey Hanlon with the Morristown Airport.  Mr. Hanlon also reported that the jetplane involved in the crash was a Learjet 75.  The Morristown Airport was estimated to stay shut down until Saturday evening.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the  Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate the "Category B runway incident."  A "Category B runway incursion" is an aircraft incident where "there is a significant potential for collision requiring quick action."
