Just found another gem from Matt’s Aviation Channel! This video is a recording of a Gulfstream G100 taking off. The video is just great because you are right up close to the jet, you can hear all of the fantastic engine noise, and you can watch the takeoff in great detail. I also encourage that you go and check out more videos on Matt’s Aviation Channel!
The Gulfstream G100 was a light business jet produced by Gulfstream through a partnership with IAI. They produced a few hundred examples of the aircraft under the gulfstream name, though more were produced under the IAI name. The Gulfstream versions were all purposed as private and business jets, as they had comfy and quiet interiors and were able to carrier about 8 passengers. Some of the IAI models however were contracted to various NATO governments for use as transports, training vehicles, and cargo carriers.
The actual airframe of this aircraft allowed for so many uses because the inside was large enough for it to serve as a private jet while also being customizable enough to serve all those other purposes. The G100 is no longer in production as the closest related aircraft to it, size-wise, would be the Gulfstream G280. The Gulfstream G280 is still in production and is a light business jet that is produced by Gulfstream with the sole purpose of being a business jet.
