Aircraft Industries 1125 Astra N279DP
The Astra was kind of a low wing
Westwind, deliveries of which commenced in the mid 1980s.
subsequently been developed into the contemporary Gulfstream G100
series aircraft. The
aircraft were built "green" in Israel and flown to the US for interior
fittings and electronics. Dummy,
re-usable call signs were
used for the ferry flights, this one being 4X-CUS (the fifth time this
used up to that time). The somewhat washed out shot above was
taken at Camarillo,
California in 1997.
