HUD view from a brand new G550, only about 19 hours on the aircraft. Took off from the Long Beach Gulfstream facility on an acceptance flight. We are about half way between Long Beach, CA and Albuqureque, NM. What a beautiful aircraft....Thanks to the Gulfstream staff and Craig O'Neil for allowing me on this flight. Also thanks to Blaine Hammond for letting me hang out in the left seat! UPDATE...Aircraft is on the return leg from Albuqureque, NM. We never landed there just turned around and headed back.

A brand new G550. What a toy! The bird can fly at FL450. Almost no one flies that high so no en-route delays.

Actually, the G550 is certified to FL510 as is her older sibling, the GV. Still, a beautiful shot.

Nice detail on the HUD. Question though: If you were flying from Long Beach, CA to Albuquerque, NM, and were halfway there, why is the heading southwest (237)? Traffic perhaps?

Awesome HUD shot! Heading 088 degrees; course to VOR 238 degrees. Fly high little hot rod.

Well, it took awhile for me to figure out the heading comments above, but I finally did....I had to go to GV initial school to do it, but here is the deal. The aircraft IS headed 238 degrees. The 088 is what the heading bug is set at. The arrow above that heading is the wind vector. Most of the rest is self explanatory. Great shot!

This is from an ACCEPTANCE FLIGHT, not a flight from LGB to ABQ. The comment about being halfway between the two means nothing in relation to the heading. Acceptance flights on G550's are typically 4-6 hours long just flying around at high altitude to test out the equipment.

This picture, there is so much calm, so much peace. It literally grabbed me. Sure there are gauges to read but removing oneself for the moment as you did really tells the story. Thank you for sharing. This precious reward given straight to our heart and soul ... is why every single one of us yearns to fly.
