The Jetstar... flown by James Bond in the 1960s...
4 engine biz jet with unbelievable style!
It seems the Mexican government has one still flying. Several are for sale. Are any private citizens still rocking this jet?
|Quoting PeachAir (Reply 4):|
There are still 24 Jetstars on the USCAR.
|Quoting Jetstar (Reply 10):|
would guess there are just a few of the P&W versions still flying, probably outside of the US because of noise restrictions. From what I have seen in the photo database, there are quite a few of the updated versions still flying and I have heard over half of the JetStar 2’s are still in service. The 2’s are still going for over 2 million. There has been a 2 on Ebay recently, opening bid was 2 million and the reserve still has not been met.

Wayne Newton had one, James Brown defaulted on a lease for one..... and you can find a mile of um' falling apart down at rattelsnake gulch in the desert of Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson AZ.

Many people have not had the experience of sitting backwards during take off and being pushed against the seatbelt especially during a steep climb.

At the time of this post, this Jetstar2 was enroute KSDL - KIAD (isn't N65JT Travolta's?)
|Quoting L1329II (Reply 13):|
John Travolta had one (N155AV) Kenny Rogers had one too

If memory serves, I saw an episode of "Big Boy's Toys" on the History Channel some month back and one of the topics featured Micheal Dorn (Lt Worf, Star Trek TNG fame) who owned a vintage early 60s era Jetstar.
|Quoting KBFIspotter (Reply 26):|
He owns a North American T-39B. This was the aircraft that the Jetstar was competing with for a military contract to be a new VIP transport. The Jetstar was chosen, and the T-39 became a navigational trainer. North American also built several for the Civilian world, which we know as the Saberliner (due in part to the fact it had the wings of the F-86.
|Quoting Jetstar (Reply 27):|
The chief pilot found out about this and stuck a green stamp next to the fuel dump switch with the warning that they would be fired if he found out they did it again.
