Cessna 750 Citation X, G-CDCX
The aircraft was positioning to DoncasterAirport for minor maintenance. Shortly after a normal touchdown, the right main landing gear trailing link failed and both mainwheels on that side detached. The aircraft slid to a halt just off the right side of the paved surface. The link failed due to a long stress corrosion crack and a recommendation is made for frequent visual inspection of the links for the presence of such cracks.
