More recent strangers at Christchurch

          Tony McFarlin captured these three executive jets at Christchurch International airport in 
                                                                    the last few days.

Gulfstream 650ER VP-CVA c/n 6223 arrived on the 25th of September.
Built in mid 2016 and registered as N623GA with the manufacturer Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation of Savannah, Georgia. It was cancelled on 19-02-2017 to become VP-CVA on the same day to Star Vision Holdings Inc on the Cayman Islands and is operated by Jet Aviation Business Jets-Hong Kong.

Another Gulfstream N48RT c/n 73022 arrived on the 27th. Initially registered as N622GD to Grumman Aerospace in about October of 2019 for transfer on 09-06-2020 to Raytheon Technologies Corporation of Hartford, Connecticut and then to RTX Corporation of East Granby, Connecticut from August this year.

And a better photo of the Embraer 190 Lineage 1000 VT-PTM VT-PRM which dropped in on the 23rd and was mentioned HERE on the 24th just prior to its departure.


  1. A typo in the reg? Should perhaps read VT-PRM instead.

  2. Good spotting. Rego changed. Thanks.
