Here come the Black Airplanes

N163PA - 1982 build Grumman Gulfstream 3, ex Danish Air Force F-249Ebola infected nurse Nina Pham boarded a charcoal grey aircraft headed out of Dallas to a special isolation ward at the National Institutes of Health Hospital in Maryland.

So  anyone wondering about these unmarked, almost black, aircraft. Guesses anyone?  Well Here is the information:

N Number N163PA is a 1982 GULFSTREAM AMERICAN CORP. G-1159A with Serial Number 249

This is a 21 seat Fixed Wing Multi Engine Aircraft
Type Certificated
With an Air Worthiness Date of 2008-06-12

So to whom is the aircraft registered? Not a private charter company! Not a private citizen! Not even the military! Tired of guessing, try the CIA!

Registration information:

N163PA LLC
BRANDYWINE BLDG
1000 N WEST ST FL 10
WILMINGTON, DE 198011050
US

So what is the significance of Wilmington Delaware? Wilmington is a place where a number of CIA shell companies are set up.

Now don’t get me wrong, it warms my heart that the CIA is now engaged in humanitarian endeavors. So the Gulfstream G-1159A aircraft has a range of between 3700 & 4100 NM, depending on the model, which is plenty to provide private service for healthcare workers to shuttle between the US and western Africa.

I wish Nina Pham the best and hope she and Amber Vinson experience a speedy recovery.

Again, I’d like to put in a plug for one of my favorite organizations. One that has been fighting Ebola since before any of us even knew there was an epidemic. Please join me in donating to Samaritan’s Purse.
