Random Gulfstream photo #21

Have been sent a picture of G3 K2960 (420) taken by Neil Harris as he left Delhi last February on his way home. This has been reported as VT-ENR but doesn't appear to carry this registration now. This was built as an SRA-1 demonstrator (N47449) and first flew in August 1984. It appeared at the Farnborough show a month later. It was delivered to the Indian Air Force via Luton in May 1987 where it was caught by my good friend John Lythgoe. It seems to have used VT-ENR for ferry flights to the States for maintenance. Used primarily for monitoring the border between India and Pakistan and presumably will be replaced by Globals. K2961 was also present during Neil's visit.
