Gulfstream N823GA Crashed in France

3 Souls lost. News stories are sketchy at this time.

Anyone know what might have caused the crash or who was onboard?

Our airplane happens to be parked at the same airport for a few weeks. It looks like 3 American crew members were on board, no passengers. It was a US based charter company’s G4… They had dropped the pax in Nice and because of limited parking they were repositioning to Le Castellet. Between a few pictures in the local papers and talking to a crew that had landed before them and had just left the airport when the crash happened, it appears to be a nasty crash. Airplane broke up and burned well off the runway. That is all we know at this time. … 20120713-0
