Cessna 510 Citation Mustang

The smallest Citation ever is clearly a derivative of the Cessna 525 CitationJet, but has distinc­tive characteristics. To start, it has wide, oval cabin windows, not squared off ones. Secondly, the Citation Mustang has different cockpit windows, somewhat like that of the Raytheon Premier I. Finally, the baby Citation has ventral fins.

Unlike many other small Citations the Mustang has small ventral fins.

The curved cockpit windows of Citation Mustang are similar to those of the Raytheon Premier I.

Confusion possible with

Cessna 525 Citation CJ1+


When viewing the Citation CJ1+ (and older versions) and Citation Mustang side-by-side you see they have a lot in common. However, the CitationJet family has different cabin windows (a bit squared off top and bottom), different cockpit (side) windows and no ventral fins.

Epic Elite

When looking closely to the Epic Elite only the general appearance and the cabin windows may put you on the track to mistake an Epic Elite for a Citation Mustang. For the rest they are significantly different.

Raytheon Premier I

Apart from the general appearance and the cockpit side windows there are many diffe­rences between the Premier and the Mus­tang: the shape of the cabin windows, the more pointed nose, a single ventral fin and a more rectangular tail cone, to name a few.
