The Cessna 550 Citation II collided with two deer just after rotation at Charleston Executive Airport, SC.
The pilot continued the climbout and assessed that the flight controls functioned normally, but that the airplane was having issues with pressurization, and he was unable to communicate via radio. He eventually was able to contact air traffic control via mobile phone to coordinate their arrival at the destination and landed there uneventfully. Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed that it had sustained substantial damage to the right wing and its pressure vessel during the collision with the deer.

Sunset had occurred 38 minutes before the incident at the non-towered airport.

Probable Cause:

Probable cause: "The airplane's impact with a deer during takeoff."
