In our coverage two weeks ago of a fatal crash involving a Cessna Citation operated as an aeromedical flight, two errors crept in. First, we labeled the Citation as a "Citation Bravo," based on early general-media reports. Due to an editing oversight, we failed to go back and correct our early version before it was published. In fact, the accident aircraft was a 1982-vintage Citation II. Also, we erred in failing to publish the correct identifier for the jet's planned destination, the Willow Run Airport outside Detroit, Mich. The correct identifier is YIP. We know better and, again, this one got past us somehow. Thanks to the sharp-eyed readers who pointed out these oversights.
