Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Bombardier Global Express or Gulfstream C-20G ?

Despite the shape is very close to a Global Express, this bizjet isn't one of the three owned by USAF : they are three dedicated Global 6000s being used as a platform for the Battlefield Airborne Communications Node, with several wide fairings housing antennas.
Gulfstream IV are on inventory with several variants. Among them, "the C-20G is operated by Fleet Logistics Support Squadron Four Eight (VR-48) at Naval Air Facility, Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland and at VMR Detachment Kaneohe Bay, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The C-20G is also known as the "Grey Ghost" (wikipedia). This is exactly the action of the script !

Reviewed some higher quality footage of this scene and it's clearly a civil Global Express with registration M-BLUE. I suspect the filmmakers just used stock footage of a business jet rather than spending the effort to film a genuine USAF aircraft for such a short scene. Corkeyandpals (talk) 11:51, 9 July 2021 (MDT)
