3 years of G500 flying
3 years ago today (2015), the first flight took place of the G500. Although certification is still awaited, the 5 test aircraft continue to build up their hours and are often setting speed records. Leaving Shanghai recently, both the G500 and G600 headed home via Honolulu. The G500 did it a minute quicker than "big sis" and 5 minutes quicker back to Savannah. See gulfstreamnews.com for more info. On a personal note, I've only seen one of them (see below) but hope to improve my tally soon. Watch this space.
