The Citation II was also designed with more powerful engines and higher fuel capacity, giving the aircraft more power and range. The wing span was also lengthened and the luggage compartments expanded. The wings were further redesigned later in the model’s life to maintain its previous stability in the straight wing design and also to reduce drag.
