  Inspection of Green Airframe

June 25-26, 2002
Savannah, Georgia

Green airframe assembled, ready for modifications and UCAR, NCAR and NSF visit to inspect the green airframe during the IPT Meeting #3. And because of the celebratory nature of the visit to Gulfstream on this IPT #3 trip, after the planning meetings for the modifications and the excitement of seeing #677 up close, we sampled some of the local specialties.
