Are they hiring??? Does anyone know the CP? :pimp:

Closer inspection tells me this is a GV, 550, or 450. Will Savannah or Long Beach paint this type of art or is it aftermarket???

If you look closely, you can see beaver tail. Must be French.

Looks like the work of Guido's House Of Class of Staten Island.

Not that I don't appreciate the artwork, but this idea and the employment of the person suggesting it would last about 15 seconds at my job. Has to be a private Gulfstream, there is no public traded company on earth, except maybe Playboy Enterprises that would consider this paint job. Wouldn't exactly make for tight security either, you could ID this plane in a split second, no need to look up the tail number. Probably not flying into the Middle East either. That would be a laught riot to see how Saudi customs would deal with the lady. Probably arrest the PIC and tape over the paint job! But I would like to meet the model, maybe she is the FA or the owners mistress! Fly the friendly skies....

Looks like this is the 3rd aircraft with the same tail number and...uh..graphics. The first was a Citation Bravo (SN 841) and the second was a Hawker 800XP.

What is in/above the left hand?

UK based

I was at type training with one of the pilots who flies for this owner. It is a 450, as mentioned this nose art is also on his Mustang. It is based in the UK, but has an N number. The jet was getting finished when we were in Savannah, (about 18 months ago) but the art work had to wait until they got it over to the UK.

I didn't even mean to do that, guess my mind is in the gutter as always. What can you except from an ex rotorhead!

Walter Scott & Partners Ltd.?

Can anyone identify the coat of arms on the tail? Family Crest?

Here some info a year old though. Looks like Mr. Walter Scott sold out and is now retired. So if the company owns the plane, does he still get to use it? Or is it his outright?

Copied this from the following link:

From The Sunday Times

Founder steps down from Walter Scott & Partners

Walter Scott has left the Edinburgh-based investment management company


Ian Fraser and John Penman


Walter Scott has quit the investment management company he founded in 1983 just two years after selling it for £400m. Scott, a former nuclear physicist who was famed for wearing a kilt at business meetings, sold Edinburgh-based Walter Scott & Partners to US-based Mellon Financial Corporation in 2006. He handed over the chairmanship to Kenneth Lyall last year but his departure has only just emerged. Scott said last week: “I had reached the age of 60 and thought it was time for Ken to have a crack [at being the chairman].” Lyall worked at Arthur Andersen before joining Walter Scott & Partners 25 years ago. Walter Scott & Partners, has $33 billion (£16.6 billion) under management. Scott, 61, now divides his time between homes on the Côte d’Azur and in Henley-on-Thames. He said that having run Walter Scott & Partners, which has his family crest as its logo, “almost as a family company” for 25 years, he recognised the approach was not compatible with ownership by a large multinational corporation. However, he said he had no regrets about selling the company to Mellon. Scott received dividend payments of £17.9m as a 70%-owner of the business in the nine months to December 2006, on top of a £3.2m remuneration package (assuming that he was its highest paid director). He is understood to have grossed between £280m and £300m from the sale. Scott, whose personal wealth was estimated at £180m on the most recent Sunday Times Rich List, said he now intends to focus on philanthropic activities.
