Narrative:
A Cessna 560 Citation V, registration N3RB, was destroyed when it impacted the terrain in the Mutton Mountains area southeast of Pine Grove, Oregon. The number of people onboard is unknown at this point but there were no survivors.
The aircraft departed Troutdale Airport, Oregon at 22:08 UTC. The aircraft was cleared to climb to FL230 by Seattle Center but continued to climb until it reached FL310 twenty minutes after takeoff. At that point ADS-B records show that the aircraft began a descending right hand turn that ended in the aircraft spiraling down until it impacted terrain.
