The ultimate test flight
On the 17th August, G650 N697GA (6197) departed Appleton as Gulf Test 17 on a test flight. This is nothing unusual but the route it took was quite special. The flight lasted 12 hrs 10 mins and reached a height of 49,000 feet (14,935 metres). Thanks to Flightaware for this graphic.
