The original Gulfstream jet

Thanks to Eric Castelein for sending this pic of N55RG (001) at Charlotte a few days ago. This flew here in September 2012 and was supposed to be preserved in a museum but this shot possibly suggests otherwise. We hope this finds a proper home soon.

Philip Green's new Gulfstream delivered

G650 VP-BCT (6169) has just arrived at Farnborough on delivery from Long Beach via Bermuda and Malta. This should be replacing G550 VQ-BGN (5218) which itself replaced G550 VP-BGN (5011). Should therefore soon be a regular visitor to Luton and Northolt.

Another long term resident departs Luton

Gulfstream 3 N103VV (346) departed Luton this morning heading for Keflavik and Albany. This is the former VP-BHR which used to be a regular visitor here. I believe this last flew in July 2011 so had been on the ground at Luton for nearly 5 years, most of the time hangared. Shortly after departing Luton, it declared an emergency and diverted to Glasgow and was met by the Fire Brigade. Continued it's journey later that same afternoon.

Another great picture worth sharing here. This shot of G450 N71GE (4302) was taken by Antony Pratt at Luton at the end of December last year. Seen arriving from Le Bourget. My 100th post to this blog.
