The Cessna 510 Citation Mustang is a twin-engined; single-pilot business jet produced by the US-American manufacturer Cessna Aircraft Company. At the 2002 NBAA Convention, the development of the six-seat Model 510 Citation Mustang was announced as an all-new entry-level four-passenger business jet. The Citation Mustang is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a swept wing, T-tail and retractable tricycle gear, and the smallest of the Cessna Citation family. The Citation Mustang is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW615F-turbofans and has a cruise speed of 630 km/h. Like all the Cessna Citation CJs and the M2, the Mustang is certified for single-pilot operation. The avionics are modern glass panel, but are a variation of the now-ancient but upgradable Garmin 1000 system that the company has been flying since 2005. On 23 April 2005, the Citation Mustang protototype flew first. On 8 September 2006, the airplane received FAA certification. On 22 November 2006, the first production aircraft was delivered. Cessna ended production of the design in May 2017, with 479 aircraft delivered worldwide. The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for the Cessna 510 Citation Mustang jet is C510.

On 20 March 2009, Cessna 510 Citation Mustang s/n 510-0236 was registered N778JE with Cessna Aircaft Company. On 7 September 2009, Wild Bill’s Aviation Inc., Tustin, CA was the first operator of the 2009-built Cessna 510 Citation Mustang N778JE. On 14 April 2011, the N778JE was registered with C & B Aviation Llc, Bozeman, MT. On 19 June 2017, the N778JE was registered with Aircraft Guaranty Corp Trustee, Onalaska, Texas, an aircraft registration company, specialised in providing Individual Trust Agreements to non-US citizens to enable them to legally register their aircraft on the American "N" register. Since, the Cessna 510 Citation Mustang N778JE moved to Europe and was offered for sale by CD Aircraft at Schönhagen airfield near Berlin, Germany.
On 13 September 2018, the aircraft was seen at Flugplatz Leer-Papenburg (EDWF) during a test flight with the new owner, who will operate the Cessna 510 Citation Mustang N778JE out of FMO - Flughafen Münster-Osnabrück.
