Cessna 560XL, G-WCIN
As the aircraft rotated for takeoff, the right engine vibration alert caption became illuminated and the pilot reduced power on that engine. He consulted the aircraft Check List and then continued his flight to the planned destination using reduced power on the right engine. It was established that the aircraft’s fuel filler dust cover had detached and struck the fan of the right engine. The cover was found on the runway close to the rotation point.
