April 18, Salt Lake City, Utah / Mitsubishi MU-2


At 0325 mountain time, a Mitsubishi MU-2B-60 was damaged when it struck runway lights during its takeoff roll on runway 35 at Salt Lake City International Airport. The pilot was not injured. The pilot said he was cleared for takeoff and used the left runway edge lights to align the airplane, due to reduced visibility from a rain shower. During the roll the airplane destroyed 15 to 20 lights and the left engine, cowling and propeller were damaged, as well as the pressure vessel.
