Gulfstream has done it again! Two airplanes within a week of each other! First the G650 now this!
On October 6, 2009, Gulfstream and IAI rolled out the brand new G250 business jet. The G250 will replace the G200 in the current Gulfstream line up. Most notable changes from the G200 will be the introduction of a T tail as well as a new wing. Looks like the engines are new as well.
From the pictures, the fuselage appears adequate, particularly when compared to the aircraft with which it's competing. However, the gear seems pretty...low to the ground. I'm sure the design is sound, but it seems just a bit odd to me (aesthetically).

Having in-flight access to the baggage compartment is a big change from the two G-200 my former company had. It was a surprising issue for them when they got the planes. Didn't realize how often the senior execs needed something from the baggage compartment.

Could the resolution on those pictures be any higher? LOL
Pretty good looking bird but the v-stab is right out of the Bombardier book and the low gear do indeed look a bit strange. Always prefer taller gear but they must have a good reason for the low clearance. Still I'm not a fan of the wing profiles on these midsize jets - much prefer the big wings on their larger sisters and the Citation X/XLS series.
