Its in the Fields Aviation hangar still marked as 9Q-CTH but that might change.
Only 200 Gulfstream I's were ever produced and precious few remain airworthy.
Several examples restored at Rand and sent on African service North of SA did not survive.
Lets hope this one is an exception [-o<

Why is there a tree in front of the Henley webcam?

Is this only temporarily or permanent?
