 What a beauty !!i
iFlying narrow over the Austrian snow in the mountains, and like she takes the color of the clouds
  iMr. Harald Reiter, General manager of the 'Flying Bull's' at his office in Salzburg
 'Never seen before' maintainance 'HANGAR 8' i Exposition HANGAR-7
iThe passengers interior of this beauty normally remains 'secret' only for VIP's. For this one occasion Dutch Aviation Support was granted to show these two interior pictures.
iThe cockpit, classic model i iNo digital displays
iInside, outside, even the wheel hatches, it's all shining and proper !
iA look at the engines, what a sight to see them starting up !
i4 Pratt & Whitney R2800CB-3 take this lady in the air !
iHere she flies, accompanied by two Alpha Jets out of the 'Flying Bull's collectioni
iThe beautifull building of glass and steel, the hangars in the shape of a wing
iA mighty view inside, exposed airplanes and helicopters of all kind all over the place
A conversationroom high under the top shows you all beneath it like this shining helicopteri
iPerhaps we can report again, about this waterplane, or the logistics outside...
iThe Flying Bulls have a fleet of four hardly ever seen Alpha jets in the collection
diWe hope to report about them in future !!
