Delivering the Blink Jet

When the Blink Jets are delivered from the Cessna factory in Kansas, they have to fly 4,878 statute miles to reach their base in the UK.

The flight plan takes them from Wichita (Kansas) to Buffalo (New York), onward to Goose Bay (Canada) before heading out over the Arctic Circle.

They stop at Narsarsuaq (Greenland) and Keflavic (Iceland), making a final quick stop in Dublin (Ireland) before touching down at the CSE Citation Centre Bournemouth for finishing touches.

These photos were taken in Narsarsuaq, Greenland during the delivery of G-FBLI and G-FLBK in November 2008. Captain Dougie Gass and Captain Andrew Collicott piloted these first flights alongside test pilots from Cessna.
