Dan and I made fast friends with our shuttle bus driver Monday night, and good thing, too. He actually stopped in traffic so I could snap the cell phone pic above. Anybody know what kind of plane that is? Wonder if the giant GLOCK logo leads to more thorough customs inspections.

    • Global Express

      Engines are too small in comparison to body to be a cjX and the part at the top of the rudder in the middle of the horizontal stabilizer is way more sleek than on the Citation.

      and a quick google search reveals that tailcone is unmistakably from the Global Express

    • Very true.

      Folks with that kind of money don’t advertise it.

      That corporate logo is a neon sign saying “KIdnap Me!”

      • It may usually scream “kidnap me,” but not moreso than any other display of wealth, like, for example a private jet.

        And Herr Glock probably would regard a kidnapping attempt as an opportunity to test his latest design, as well as excellent advertisement fodder.

  1. I knew it!!! They are parked next to the Juliet jet I bet. The one that goes out to Area 51. I bet it is where they come up with their secret plans for global domination in the gun market place lol

  2. Everyone who guessed Bombardier Global Express is correct, specifically an XRS. I was actually part of the crew that did the completion work on the Glockjet in Illinois, unfortunately there’s nothing really cool like gun lockers or a shooting range or whatever in the cabin 🙁

  3. It can’t be in California — they won’t let planes in unless they have microburners that imprint the aircraft’s type, serial number and owner’s name on every molecule of jet exhaust.

  4. Who the hell cares what make and model of plane Glock owns, any more than what brand of toilet paper Glock execs use in the corporate restroom?

    Focus, boys, focus. I know you all get wrapped up in hero worship and fanboyism, but I’m all about the guns.

    • from what i can see in the posts quite a number of individuals had a splendid time demonstrating their plane spotting acuity.
      rotax, a wholly owned subsidiary of bombardier, powers all manner of propelled contrivances for both on and off road, marine and air; hovercraft and ultralight. rotary valve two strokes are a favorite of mine. glockage is not.
      why don’t you send a reply tomorrow from the grocery store on your smart phone?

  5. I don’t own a Glock, But Gun and Ammo Manufacturers vehicles always impress me. Iv seen a few, But that Glock Plane is pretty much at the top of any list Iv seen…

  6. How many pistols does Glock have to sell to just to cover the purchase of that plane?

    Let us assume that the average Glock pistol has netted the company $25 over the years. If that plane cost $50 million, then Glock would have had to sell 2 million pistols just to cover the cost of that plane. How many plastic fantastics have they sold?

    Next question: how many pistols does Glock have to sell to cover the operating expenses of that plane? Fuel, maintenance, and pilots have to total something like $1 million per year. Again, if Glock nets $25 per pistol, they have to sell about 40,000 pistols per year just to cover the operating expenses. Yikes!

    • Read somewhere Glocks cost about $100 each to manufacture.

      The plane’s cost can be estimated on a per-hour basis, cost of the aircraft and financing, paying your flight crew, insurance, fuel, hanger, required maintenance, etc.

      It’s likely well over a million a year total.

  7. I have it! It’s a big jet, a really big jet, goes way fast-flies high in the sky! More interesting would be the question of how many Israeli supermodels have joined the 5 mile high club in it!
