Iqaluit was known as Frobisher Bay in the frozen North of Canada.
N800PJ parked in frozen field!!! Seems aircraft over ran the runway, and went through a fence, no front end photos but looks okay otherwise!!! At least the gear stayed up!! Apparently the field has been frozen solid for two months now!!
You can see the remains of the fence to the left of the aircraft.

I guess the runway was slick???
Either they spun or turned around in preparation for taxiing back to terra firma.
Good observation, aircraft did a 180 as it went thru the fence, today they were carving out an ‘ice’ taxiway, to tow it out of there.
There was also a NetJets Citation Excel C560XL that went off a taxiway at Centennial Airport in Denver yesterday.
