Two G550s for Polish VIP Mission

Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:05 pm

Flightglobal reports that Poland has ordered two Gulfstream G550s for VIP transport.....

"Gulfstream has secured an order from the Polish government for two G550 business jets to be used for VIP transport missions. The large-cabin, long-range aircraft are scheduled for delivery in 2017 and will be operated by the country’s air force."

The new aircraft will replace the leased LOT E175s and the one lost in the fatal accident. Would be interesting to see the interior fitment once it's out of completions.

Nice ride! But the aircraft pictured is not a 650!

Tu154 --> E170 --> G550 what's next? Cessna C172? ;-)
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

When installed, Otto The Automatic Pilot will not make such stupid CFIT errors. There is nothing to worry about.

Otto has a good chance of being deflated by a drunk cigar waving VIP.
