Help Me Identify This Aircraft / Registration

Tue Feb 01, 2005 2:47 pm

Hey everyone. I went out to APA tonight and tried a 30 second exposure on some departing aircraft. I know this plane was a jet, but I have no idea what kind. It is obviously a biz jet of some sort, but if anyone could help me determine the make/model based on the lighting config, or if someone with a flight tracker could get me the reg (it took off at 8:04 PM MST) I would appreciate it.



Best Regards!

I believe I have narrowed it down to either a Cessna Citation V or X, but I am not 100% sure on that.....any thoughts/info, let me know!  Big thumbs up

Give it another day and that flight will be up on Fboweb...I'll get it for you then. Knowing the departure time is a big help.

I'm going to as soon as I can track down some more info, hehe. I am pretty sure it was a Citation X...based on some somewhat lacking schedules I saw.

Thanks for the offer OptionsCLE!

I don't see how it could be a Citation V, the landing lights are attached to the gear struts on either side and would have been retracted immediately after takeoff, so you wouldn't have that long streak.
