A Raytheon 390 Premier I business jet, N20NL, sustained substantial damage after landing and departing the runway surface at the Sharpe Farms Airport (MO09), Lewistown, Missouri. The crew of two pilots and two passengers were not injured.
During the approach to the destination airport, the runway appeared "wet", and a normal approach and landing was attempted. The airplane touched down at 110 knots, the pilot "then deployed lift dump and brakes". Unable to get braking action, the pilot tried to slide the airplane "left and right" to get traction, but could not. The airplane departed the south end of the 4,370-foot-long runway, went over the edge of an embankment and stopped next to a levee. There were no reported pre-impact malfunctions with the airplane.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's loss of directional control during landing on an ice-contaminated runway."
