RE: Colourful Retiree Story

Post by planefixer »

There doesn't seem to be any way of directly replying to News Stories on your other pages [sorry, I don't use Facebook/Twitter] Nice story about the [just about] sill extant Gulfstream I. The only thing I have to question is the first line of the story "This 37-year old Gulfstream I (msn 175)"

37 years immediately struck me as being very young for a Gulfstream I and indeed when I consulted my records I have this aircraft as being manufactured in 1966 with a f/f on 20/01/1966, so 55 years old so not sure where the 37 years old has come from?

It was withdrawn from service in 2003. So 37 years after its first flight. It stopped ageing after that I think...
