Glock Airplane – Bombardier Global Express

Spotted by AR15.com member gimp2x at an airport near Glock’s U.S. headquarters in Smyrna, GA:

the pilots are both named christian, flight attendants looked like supermodels

As in most Glock related threads, hilarity ensued:

How long after those pictures were taken did the aircraft explode? (Madcap72)

Advanced polymer fuselage that goes Ka Boom when you reach 32,000 feet. (glockkaboom)

Yeah apparently you can run these planes through mud and sand, they will still fly even underwater, but its better to get the maritime spring cups for it. (koorva)

Some more jokes over at GlockTalk:

I hope the toilet seat doesn’t have the rough texture finish. (Aaron Geisler)

Ya know, on a plane, I might want RTF lavatory seats. Just in case the flight gets a bit turbulent, I want extra griping power.  Now, if the toilet paper has an RTF feel to it….. (BMG22)

According to wikipedia, the Bombardier Global Express goes for $45 million.  That’s a lot of Glocks!  I imagine most people that spend $45million on a plane probably spend another couple million at least upgrading it.

Plane enthusiasts in the thread were saying this is most likely a corporate jet, and that Gaston is known to have a smaller Cessna Citation X for his own personal use.

“Advanced polymer fuselage that goes Ka Boom when you reach 32,000 feet.”

Make that 40,000 feet – due to undersupported cabin pressure.

hahahaha. I hear you need an aftermarket cabin though if you wan’t to refill your own drinks, rather than letting the flight attendants do it.

I’m guessing this is a brand new acquisition. This registration number isn’t on the latest update of the Austrian aircraft registry, and it was previously registered in the U.S. to Bombardier. Brand new plane I’d guess. It looks like Glock also has registered in Austria a Cessna 750 (Citation X), a Cessna 525 (CitationJet), and two helicopters. Not too shabby.

(I tried posting this earlier and I guess it didn’t work… maybe this time.)

The first time you commented it got held by the spam filter for approval. Sorry about that, I’m not sure why it did that.

Wow that is a LOT of money sunk into air transport! Heck if they can afford it why not? I’d never fly commercial again in my life if I didn’t have to. Obviously not making removable back straps before this year didn’t hurt business very much :P

There are no seat belts, because this plane is perfectly safe as long as you keep your ass off the seat!
