Spotted this Citation X executing a go-around at Camarillo Airport.  According to Cessna, this 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. The Cessna Citation X was certified by the FAA at Mach 0.935 (617 mph), officially making it the “world’s fastest civilian aircraft”.  First flown in 1993, more than 330 of these have been built.
