Actually the lead aircraft is the Bombardier Global Express 5000 and the over-wing turboprop is the Rockwell Aero Commander 500.

Ok I swear the photo was not there when I posted earlier and the helo is a Sikorsky but model eludes me.The king air is a B300 and only 3 in the picture are active.The helo the B300 and the Gulfstream.The rest have been mothballed or removed from inventory.Also by coincidence the active 3 are also in Ys inventory.But i would love to have an Electra in Ys as well.

I see N-numbers...N35, N38, N39, and N47.

N35 is a Beech 200, N38 is an S-76A, N39 is a Convair 400, N47 is a Bombardier Global 5000, according to the registry site.

I know y'all already worked these out, but I couldn't resist using the FAA registry to check into the FAA registration numbers. :lol:

Also, that photo is heavily photoshopped. You can tell by the shadows and lack of nose gear on one of the planes.

Patrick: good call, didn't realize the N-numbers would be the easiest route here :-P

Gunny: no worries sir, I totally understand :) And I couldn't tell the difference between an Electra and a Convair myself either.

Seems like it, but it looks like the gears are retractable, the tailplanes are angles unlike the Islander.
