Seattle to Jeddah Non-Stop: Longest Distance Flight in a Boeing Business Jet
April 9, 2002

A recently delivered Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) takes off from Seattle's Boeing Field en route to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. BBJ Chief Pilot Mike Hewett, along with customer pilots Doug Beckham and Jeff Tolbert, departed Sunday morning, April 7, under cloudy skies and landed 14 hours 12 minutes later in sunny Jeddah. The 6,854 nautical mile flight represents the farthest distance flown in a BBJ.



What a amazing 73G/BBJ!  Smile

Anyone know who is the owner of this plane? I guess the owner is proud.

Do these have underfloor fuel tanks, and how many extra gallons or lbs over a standard 737-700 do these have, anybody know?

That is an incredible paint scheme!

Jiml1126,

Here are a couple links I found for you:

This link is about the BBJ mentioned above, and does have info on the extra fuel tanks.
http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2002/q2/nr_020409g.html

This one is Boeing's official BBJ site.

Enjoy!

Hkgspotter1,

They are nice colors. Then again, having a BBJ in ANY colors would be good, right?  Smile

Regards
