4 Dead in Crash of Gulfstream G650 on Test Flight in New Mexico
A Gulfstream G650 crashed Saturday morning during takeoff-performance tests in Roswell, N.M. Two Gulfstream pilots and two Gulfstream flight-test engineers died in the crash, Gulfstream Aerospace said.
The G650 is Gulfstream's newest and most luxurious long-range large-cabin jet, with a price tag of $64.5 million. Gulfstream has more than 200 firm orders for the private jet, which is expected to be delivered starting next year.
