I was at the DoubleTree Club Hotel on the night of June 22nd watching planes land on 22R (right over the intersection of Touhy & Manheim Rd.) and saw a white 328Jet with no markings except for a orange strip that widened as it got farther back and went up the rudder on the tail. It landed at about 9pm on the 22nd, and about 7:30am on the 23rd I saw it taxiing behind a UA 757 past Concourse L of terminal 3. Never did get a tail number on it, but my guess is a corperate aircraft, just wondering if somebody else saw this aircraft before or remembers it from them being in the ORD area that night.

This is the closest I can find

Could it have been the ACA Private Shuttle?

Got the right paint style, just wrong colors. Orange where there is blue in the pic.... and black edging to the orange. NO ACA logos though. I was probably 500' as it passed the hotel.

Can't think of any reason for the Nigerian JET to be in ORD though?

"They only other D328JET operator in the States that I can think of is Great Lakes and they went belly up."

The launch customer was Skyway, or midwest express express. They have a few. It wasn't Great Lakes, it was Great Plains, and they did go belly up. The picture shown is an ACA aircraft. It was one of the 3 that ACA owned, not leased. We had a total of 33 of them, which are heavily rumored to stay in the DCI program, after being bought by skyway. As far as the operator of the mystery 328JET into ORD, there are quite a few corporate versions, originally tagged the envoy 3, in the states. I would imagine it was one of those.

Thanks Craig, I haven't been up there in 3 years. That explains it. Are there even any flights that originate in OSH anymore?

THIS IS THE PLANE! I can't believe I never matched the paintjob to Phillip Morris' Gulfstreams. Its almost exactly the same on those.

I just wanted to pass along a 'thank you' to each of you guys and gals (never know through the 'net) that helped out with this question of mine. It only took 10 replys to find the correct aircraft. Great job! Thanks again guys/gals!

I think I may have contradicted myself on the all white 328 Jet at YIP Willow Run near Detroit. I said Honeywell, but I think Masco owns the jet now that I think of it. They also or did have a prop 328 at one time.

I know that the aircraft in question has been identified, but in case anyone is interested, Johnson Controls, Inc also operates a 328JET (N873JC) based in YIP or BIV (Tulip City Airport; Holland, MI)
