Any Idea Who Owned The GV In AKL Today?

Tue Nov 20, 2001 2:24 pm

There was a Gulfstream V in at Auckland today, parked outside the Air Centre One (is that the name?) Hangars near the threshold of runway 23. Much to my delight, it taxyed out and departed rather quickly at around 2pm - boy do those things climb!

My question - does anyone know who it belonged to? It was registred N55GV, and had Gulfstream V written on the side of the cabin.

Cheers

hey there;

N55GV SN 545 Manuf. 1998 belongs to Gulfstream Corp. This aircraft is one of their demo aircraft. I've personally boarded this aircraft and it is a beauty.

It was arranged by a Wellington based corporate company. 8 pax on a sales/promotion trip.
We did their handling.

A very nice aircraft! I have also been in this GV when it was in Geneva last April.
