Spotted this aircraft on the tarmac while attending the 2014 Pikes Peak Regional Airshow.  According to the Cessna, it is currently the fastest civilian aircraft in the world. The first Citation X was delivered in July 1996 to golfer and long-time Cessna customer Arnold Palmer who set a speed record in September 1997: 473 knots (876 km/h) on a 5,000 km closed course. First flown in 1993, more than 330 of these have been built. Nikon D7000 w/ 80-400 mm, processed with Aperture.
