VH-ASG (2) Grumman G1159 Gulfstream 2
The second aircraft to bear the
registration VH-ASG was this sleek Gulfstream, registered to
(Pty) Ltd. Above photo by Greg Banfield taken at Mascot in
November of 1971.
This rego is
actually just outside of my upper date limit of first registration in
1970 or prior for
this selection (first registered in April of 1971) but I'll put it up
anyway. The Gulf-
formerly N887GA. In 1986 VH-ASG underwent conversion
to GIIB standard.
This entailed a
complete wing replacement with a GIII wing, including winglets.
In 1993 it was
traded in for the
Gulfstream IV VH-ASQ and departed Australia for the Gulfstream plant in
Savannah, Ga in
September of that year.
