Today at my airport I noticed this jet. It had these features:
-large(size of lear 45 or 60)
-6 windows on each side......oval in shape, sort of like eggs turned on their side
-no fins underneath the stabalizer(as in the lear45)
-reg number was N800??(something, something...I cant remember)
-the nose looked something like that of Bomabrdier jets.

We might need more information then that....Did it have a T tail or a conventional one.
Based on the infor that you just gave I would guess that you saw some sort of Sabreliner. This aircraft was actually one of the first two types of biz-jets developed. It was developed for a Air Force contract in competition with the Lockheed Jetstar.
It was the egg shaped windows that I am basing this opinion on

Damn I forgot, It had a t-tail. At first glace I thought It was a Lear 45. Also the the door plates on the gear strut covered half the wheel. I dont know if I can get more specific than that. The widows on that plane look like triangles, not eggs and the plane was much more gracefull. Ohh yeah, the engines looked fat so they must be those new high-bypass turbfans. Im guessing if the plane was old the engines would be the long skinny type.
