Mystery DO328 At EWR

Sat Jan 11, 2003 12:30 pm

Hi- I was driving by Newark on the New Jersey Turnpike around 445 this afternoon, and saw an all-white DO328 (prop) landing on RWY 4L- the only identification was a blue followed by a purple band on the forward fuselage ahead of the wings. I was too far away to see the Reg # (I was also paying attention to all the traffic ahead of me making the task of staring and drooling at all the activity at EWR difficult). I know there are 2-3 private Dorniers in the US, but does anyone know who this specific plane belongs to? Thanks in advance for the help.

That plane flies into and out of EWR almost every business day, when I worked in downtown Newark I would see that plane on approach to 11/29 every day at around 4:30. The company that owns that aircraft is some technology firm, and it runs a shuttle for it's employees.

While we are on the topic of mystery DO328s...

I frequently see what appears to be an all white DO328JET that flies into Willowrun YIP a lot. I know it is some corporate DO328, but who owns it?

See that plane often at BED, also see another a/c with an identical c/s...I believe its a Falcon 900.

No too many 328JETs in Biz-Konfig around (called Envoy 3 or 328JET Quick-Change, depending on the type):

US-owned are:
* Johnson Controls (1)
* Unlimited Air Charters (1)
* Atlantic Coast Shuttle (3)
