Francis Ford Coppola


#1

Coppola was a guest on Howard Stern earlier this week and mentioned that he (his vineyard) owns a Gulfstream 100 and he will be taking delivery of a Falcon 7x next year. He referred to the 7x (I’m paraphrasing here) as the best jet ever created.

Any ideas on a t/n on the G100?

A G100 to a 7X? That is one heck of a transition! You’d think he might want to dabble in an old IVSP or something first…

I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you.

I have a friend that has flown FFC all over the world in that airplane.


#5

Wow… a paint scheme that only a mother could love…


#6

Well, FFC is one of those…creative types. :confused:


#7

“A flying carrot.”


#8

That is absolutely astonishing and almost beyond belief.

Just think, you have a friend! http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q87/CaptJHEM/runaway.gif

(Please don’t hurt me!)


#9

Okay…me having friends is…maybe…a little bit of a stretch. :blush:


#10

Looks like a deranged Crayon!


#11

Hmmm… Considering its owner…


#12

Wow. The Astra may be ugly, but she doesn’t deserve THAT !


#13

Wow and I thought the Fisher Price Little People airplane was a DC9!

Check out this Westwind that had the same registration:

Same owner, no doubt.


#15

The Westwind was his airplane prior to the G100.


#16

Looks like he has a thing for fugly paint…the worst…tragic


#17

Why buy old technology when such great new technology is available. The new 7X was delivered on Thursday.


#18

The Astra SPX was just re-registered as N728AZ, it’s been for sale
for some time. N722AZ is still reserved, so I assume it’ll be on the
Falcon 7X shortly - if not already

Has a Falcon Jet registration still, N199FJ.

What no more Orange? I assume the photo taken was in Little Rock?, looks like the Falcon Jet hangars.
