Hi

VT SBK Bharat Forge, Bombardier Global Express seems to have 3 engines. Odd... Other planes listed as Bombardier Global Express have 2 engines.

Is this one a different model/version of the same?

Somebody please enlighten...

Thanks!

It's a Dassault Falcon 900EX, not a Bombardier Global Express.

While flying the colour would not make much difference. Generally, the flying altitude of an aircraft would be in the range of 30000 to 40000 feet above sea level. Here the outside temperature would be less than zero, say between -40 to -60 C.

Yes, when parked it would be a oven, unless the air conditioning is switched on!

Nice and interesting thread.

Sometimes when you stand in the same queue, board the same commercial plane along with one of the above mentioned jet owners, and he decides to be a commoner it would becomes a big inspiration!

Couple of weeks back I had this opportunity of spending the same terminal and queue with G V Sanjay Reddy of GVK group while flying from Delhi to Bangalore. The interesting part was when one of the airport officers recognised him requested him to take the privileged passage to the aircraft, he simple refused and requested him to keep it low.

GVK operates Bangalore and CSIAirport Mumbai.

I had been in Mumbai the last couple of days. I crane my neck; fight for the right seat and angle to get a look at the Executive Jets bay every time.

I saw one in a brilliant shade of blue the day I flew in and last evening one of the Reliance Jets landed.

A little .

Most people at their level are normal, everything you see is just part of the work-related lifestyle. From the Bentley to the Rolls Royce and the mansions, they HAVE to have those things because of the people they meet and to a certain level there are some social etiquettes Board room level people have to do because work even penetrates social and personal life.

I remember a speech by Uday Kotak (Chairman of Kotak Mahindra) and one of top billionaires. He said when he was a novice businessman he didn't have the money but had to stay at a nice hotel when he travelled because he wanted the other guy to think he's fine and didn't want to lose face value.

Below is CS-DLF plane belongs to KP Singh the Chairman and Managing Director and DLF. He is one the old users of Dassault Falcon 2000EX. I wonder why it has registration starting from CS. It seems this plane is not registered in India.

CS is registration code for Portugal.
This aircraft is owned by Netjets.

My personal favorite... JK Lakshmi Cement's P-180 Avanti, also known as the Ferrari of the skies.

I worked with JK Lakshmi Cement for 4 years & was specially handling this aircraft in Delhi as their Engineering Manager. Its an awesome machine. Here's a night time shot of the aircraft.

Thanks to Tirth Pandya for sharing this!

My father works for the Aditya Birla Group and in the past, he has travelled with Kumar Mangalam Birla to London. At that time, he noted the registration of the Aircraft which was "VT-BRS".

Upon searching, I found that it is a Gulfstream Aerospace G-550 registered in the name of "Grasim Industries Ltd." which is a subsidiary of The Aditya Birla Group.

That is nice! In which case you know my super senior, my senior and my junior from the academy who have commanded this bird. I remember hitching a ride back on this once from BOM.
