    Exclamation INFO NEEDED: Fugitive Flight Inbound to NY from Bangkok

    Alleged Soviet arms dealer Viktor Bout is reportedly to arrive in NY from Bangkok tonight via a US chartered jet. He is wanted in the US for selling weapons to bad guys around the world. He was arrested in Thailand but today was extradited to the US despite objections from Thai and Russian authorities.

    It appears he boarded a white bizjet with red stripes in Bangkok in this photo: http://blogs.wsj.com/corruption-curr...radited-to-us/

    Anyone know anything? Airport? Plane? Arrival time?

    I saw an ETA of 9pm but its accuracy is questionable.

    PM me if you have any info and/or you are available to take photos. Monetary compensation is possible for photos.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Looks like a Gulfstream if that helps.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    That is defineately the door assembly of a Global Express... Maybe the one Matt got was the right one. Hard to say but it was defineately a GLEX in any event.

    Whenever someone rather important flies into SWF with a private jet they usually helo to NYC, for example Prince Harry.

    Was walking by a tv showing CNN and they had some footage of him in what looked like a hanger, I mustve just missed him getting off the plane and I was in a hurry.

    Someone with a JD correct me, but when you're being extradited, the jurisdiction of the case becomes your first point of entry to the United States. Since he was being charged in the Southern District of New York, he had to enter in the Southern District, which is Bronx, Dutchess, New York, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, and Westchester Counties (notably not Queens County).
