Of the 350 Mustangs delivered, there have been two serious incidents and two minor incidents.
N13616 510-0049 on delivery flight. If a foreign owner picks up the Mustang in Kansas - it departs with foreign registration. If Cessna is delivering it, it departs with USA delivery registration.
So N13616 had one Cessna pilot, and one new owner pilot from Croatia - as the foreign reg. was also under the wing, it was covered up with white vinyl.
During pre-flight crew failed to notice the tape covered the fuel vent and during flight the left wing emploded. Aircraft was trucked to a Cessna center and new wing was installed.
N54PV 510-0028 ground looped at Carlsbad to prevent going off the end of the runway - which I believe is about a 30 foot drop. The aircraft had been suffering electrical problems on approach.
Aircraft was repaired which took about 4 months.
Minor incidents, like N902LG 510-0066 was hit by a tug, which took less than two weeks to repair.
OE-FMZ 510-0116 damaged it’s gear and wing tip while taxiing in soft ground.
Other incidents like blown tires are about it. However to date the Mustang fleet has not suffered a hull loss of any kind and continues an excellent safety record.
As for N600DE 510-0005 was the first customer delivery, it is now flying under the FAA BARR Program so it will no longer show up on Flight Aware.
N83EM 510-0026 Jared’s World Record Breaking Mustang - he said he was having control services’ freezing problems, and Cessna ‘did the right thing’ and took it back. He bought a CJ2 in the trade - to add to his fleet!!
He was regularly flying a G150, has his CJ2, C650 and all his toys’ T-33, 2 L-39’s, a T-28, G58 (The toys!!!)
Cessna re-sold and delivered N83EM and it flies a lot!!!
