Gulfstream Aerospace Gulfstream IV (N729TY)
This picture may have been submitted on 3 Dec 2016, but it was not taken on that date, if in fact it is a picture of N511DB. N511DB is currently a G650. It used to be a GIV several years ago. The aircraft in this picture is a GIV. N511DB may very well have been the registration for a GIV. Evidence for this assertion it that there are six cabin windows per side (not seven) , clamshell style thrust reversers (as opposed to faired in), windscreen wipers (as opposed to none), pitot tubes mounted on top of the nose in front of the windscreen (as opposed to two per side mounted on the sides), and no EVS window on top of the nose where the aforementioned pitots reside. The landing lights are mounted in the inboard leading edge area, like on a GIV and not on the belly like a 650. The taxi lights are arranged in a three across fashion, while on a 650 they are in a triangle.
Hello Doug, you are quite sharp. I took this picture on December 3. I have the wrong N number. N511DB is another Gulfstream I saw a few minutes after this one.....After digging in my pictures I found the right N number N534QS. Exact type is: 2006 GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE GV-SP (G550). Thank you for your input and sorry for my mistake !!! I will add a picture of N 511DB, watch for it Doug !!!
I do not believe that this is N534QS either which is a G550, this aircraft is a standard GV, if you look closely at the stripe on the fuselage and the painting at the top of the tail you can see that it is the wrong color and in the wrong location.
Wow, tough crowd!
Yes, tough crowd! Here I am correcting myself again....1990 GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE G-IV. N729TY. Location in KVNY on Dec 3. Hope I got it right this time.
You're getting closer, could be a G-IVSP but the paint livery is the same as N450JE.
I quit !!!!
Clause. I don't care what the tail no is. Its a great photo. Great job
