Remark Photographer
N747AE (cn 5065) 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.

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.

Amazing!I´ve never seen a photo like this before, I didn´t know Gulfstreams had this kind technology on board... Beautiful, I wish I could fly one someday :P

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Fri April 2, 2010:
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.

Ooooo, That's cool

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 16, 2007:
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!

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 5, 2006:
Awesome HUD shot! Heading 088 degrees; course to VOR 238 degrees. Fly high little hot rod.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 19, 2006:
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?

A visitor from - posted Wed June 7, 2006:
Awesome view straight ahead. i like seeing what the pilots see. 5*!

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 3, 2006:
Nice HUD detail...! just one thing...! I dont think that you were flying between Long Beach and Alburquerque...you heading should be Eastbound not Southwest bound...see Heading Indicator...! ;)

Wow! This 'office' is my dream!! Nice shoot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 3, 2006:
Actually, the G550 is certified to FL510 as is her older sibling, the GV. Still, a beautiful shot.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 24, 2005:
HUD, in flight, 45,000 ft! Awesome.

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 16, 2005:
Awesome view of the HUD and the information contained therein.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu October 13, 2005:
A brand new G550. What a toy! The bird can fly at FL450. Almost no one flies that high so no en-route delays.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 13, 2005:
Great shot. Not often you get to see the world from FL450!

A visitor from Turkey posted Wed October 12, 2005:
Very good view

A visitor from New Zealand posted Wed October 12, 2005:
Fabulous shot!
The technology and the environment captured in one frame ...
Very cool!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue October 11, 2005:
Great shot - thank you very much.

I ordered one, but without HUD - I don´t like it ;-)

Kindly regards from germany
