Fairly awesome.....this could be in the inventory in a few years. The range and speed are the most valuable assets.

I'm waiting, however, for the SSBJ concept to come to reality. That oughta be the next AF1 mini-me.
Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

With range to reach LHR and LAX, it could be an ideal replacement for this.....

.....however, given the country's myriad problems, (its air arm hardly meriting the term "force" for lack of proper fighters, there's been talk of it being merged with the army) seeing a G650 in RP colors would be well in the distant future, if at all.
