Swedish Prime Minister In N. Korea

Thu May 03, 2001 1:45 am

Today the swedish prime minister arrived in North Korea.
I don't know what airplane he is using, but in the pictures it's a white twin engine jet with "Swedish air force" painted on the fuselage.

Does anyone know what type of aircraft it is and how far it can go without re fueling, because on the news they said that the prime minister arrived after "a long night flight".
It seems to me that the aircraft is way to small to fly from Sweden to north Korea without
at least four or five stops.
Please correct me.

I think that the prime minister of Sweden is using a Gulfstream IV. As far as I know it has great range, and can probably make the whole trip without refueling, but correct me if I'm wrong.

I think they have a Gulfstraem IV and that could make it nonstop from Stockholm to Pyongyang. The777Man
