Unknown military transport preserved at Rawalpindi

Post by ehusmann »

While checking to see if the new F-6 was already visible at Rawalpindi, I came across an for me unknown military transport aircraft preserved in that same area. Does anyone know what type of plane this is? Any pictures to be found somewhere on the web perhaps?

In March 2007, Grumman Gulfstream I (company designation G-159) registered in South Africa as ZS-NHW had an accident at Islamabad Airport when the nose gear failed to extend. The aircraft with construction number 141 was built in 1964.

Thanks to both. That must be it indeed. I knew it was at the airport before, but it must have been moved not too long ago.
