Found an interesting video of G-159 landing with partial gear up. The Grumman G-159 was on a military flight from San Nicolas Island to Point Mugu.

summary and video here... http://cbs5.com/topstories/local_story_211164620.html

Thanks for the link...interesting vid...who operated the G-I???? It seems to have an N-number written on the tail, plus Im not sure any branch of the US armed forces flies any G-I currently, so clearly its from a civilian agency, even though the article says it was a "military flight"...

who operated the G-I????

Phoenix Air. They do lots of military contract work.

The Gulfstreams are mentioned at the bottom of this page.

Thats actually a G-159C (G-1C) which was a modified stretch version for commuter service, but only 5 were modified that way. A very rare version of the G-1. It looks like it could be this aircraft, but I think Phoenix has a few G-1Cs:
