Hey was down on Tradeport Drive today and there where more Bizjets here today than I have ever seen, I was hoping someone might have been working down there or spotting today and could get me as many reggies as they have, i was there around 4:30PM, i saw what I think was the Miami Heats 727, and I also saw a Global Express or Challenger with a rainbow color strips on it and a bunch of Gulfstream, anyone with any reggies would be a great help, I could only get a few. Thanks

I was thinking the same thing on my way to work today. The aircraft you saw with the rainbow on the tail is actually a CL-65 (CRJ). I watched it land yesterday on 18R. Yesterday, we also had a C-17, a Continental 777, and AF2. The night before that, we had the BA Dreamflight 744.

Can we say the fact that Pres. Cheney....oops I mean VP Cheney was in town for one, That is a good reason why the Beeline was stopped for a while today. But as far as the other biz jets were in town is beyond me.

The bizjets might also be there due to that PGA golf tournament at Disney World.
Last week I went to Orlando Tinkerfield (next to Citrus Bowl) for the Rock For Relief concert (the hurricane relief concert put on by Orlando's 101.1 FM with bands such as Saliva, Collective Soul, Nonpoint, Chevelle etc). Tinkerfield is just to the left of the landing pattern for ORL and I swear I seen 2-3 Global Expresses, another couple Gulfstreams, and several Citations and King Airs come in during the concert.
