    Fun Time in Van Nuys

    Hi,

    just wanted to share a first set of photos from Van Nues, where I visited
    Clay Lacy aviation... they have one of PFC's sims there and it is being put
    to very good use.

    While we were there, we wwere invited for a short flight on Magic Johnson's
    Gulfstream 4... they had to make a short test flight of one hour and I
    didn't hesitate to board. But only when the door was closed and we were
    taxiing to the runway did they tell me that the test was because of some
    very strange vibrations from the left engine. Lots of fun with the 6000
    ft/min 330 IAS descent and the steepest turns I could possibly imagine on a
    civilian jet.

    The whole airport was very interesting, they claim it is the busiest
    business jet airport in the US, I counted four BBJs, many many Gulfstreams
    (including the G5) and saw how a dog was flown to its owner on the Bahamas
    n
    a G4. A small white pooch.

    Also had a rather massive Hertz upgrade, and Eric of PFC is standing in
    front of it. Next life: porn producer.

    Ciao

    Hi Enrico!

    Nice to see you had some fun!

    That is not a GIV in your picture. Maybe a GIII?
    GIV has a longer fuselage with 6 windows.

    Neither are still in production.

    Oops, they told me it was a V4 when I was in it, and I have several aircraft

    photos I could have messed up.

    Well, it was still "nice" And the dog didn't mind either.

    Enrico,
    I notice that your attire was totally colour co-ordinated with the interior
    of the Gulfstream. Was this intentional?
    You look totally comfortable in that situation.


    You will have to leave the Rolls in the US - you will never get it around
    some of the hair-pin bends in Italy.

    cheers
    Graeme

    Oh, I was just kidding about the Rolls, I got merely a Jaguar S-Type instead

    of the usual Lincoln this time.

    Ciao

    Enrico
