I posted about the arrival of some Hunters and, in that post, I mentioned that I was there for a Gulfstream test jet. A couple of years ago, I managed to get some shots of a G600 test jet and I had been hoping to catch a G700 at some point. When one of the test aircraft filed a flight plan for Boeing Field, I finally had my opportunity. I was waiting for it when the Hunters showed up. It wasn’t far behind them that my original target showed itself.
This is the fourth test aircraft. It is in a nice paint job typical for the average anonymous bizjet but it gives hints to its true purpose by having some of the windows replaced with instrumentation. I was able to get it as it came in from the south, albeit with the usual cluttered background that Boeing Field has. Fortunately, they were operating out of the field for a few days and I was able to come back at a later date to catch it on approach from the other end.
