From WTAQ radio news...
GREENVILLE, Wis. (WTAQ) - No one was injured after a private jet went off the runway at the Outagamie County Regional Airport Monday afternoon. The twin-engine plane came to a halt near Highway 76 and the Chaska Golf Course at back of the airport.

I was working when this happened, and no one said anything until we heard firetrucks and first responders driving by but even then I didnt think anything was out of the norm until all the news crews starting pulling up and we got a NOTAM saying 30/12 was closed. Then about 20 min later the Airport Director was walking by in a hurry and he quick told us what had happened. None of our flights were affected but still, it has been a horrible winter and just when it gets nice out at 40 degrees (I'm from Wisconsin, 40 degrees feels amazing right now) with clear and dry runway conditions, we get an accident. I was also working a turn flight when they towed it back to the hangar (which is right behind our gate), they had the thing surround by CFR and all sorts of Gulfstream personel until they parked in the hangar, surrounded it by caution tape and closed up the hangar. By the way, one of the first thing CFR did when they arrived on scene was cover up the N number so when they towed it by, it was still covered up but apparently they didnt do fast enough before some local media snapped some pics lol.
