The Grey Bird -1982 Gulfstream GIII

The “Grey Bird” as she’s been named, is a special mission Gulfstream III aircraft owned and operated by Phoenix Air Group Inc.  Due to it’s former life in the Danish Air Force, military styled paint scheme, and general association with government contract flights there has been much suspicion and rumors as to it’s use.  In August 2014, the Grey Bird made global headlines as it was contracted to evacuate two medical workers with Ebola Virus, and transport them back to isolated medical care in Georgia, USA. The aircraft was specially modified with a disposable containment pod for the twelve hour transport of the highly infectious passengers. The aircraft, arriving to the United States from Africa made a fuel stop in Maine before continuing on to Atlanta.  Additionally, the aircraft did not appear on US radar systems or tracking programs such as Flight Aware.  Adding to the shadowy mystique of the Grey Bird and it’s purpose hauling highly infectious cargo.
