'Gray Bird 333' comes through during Ebola epidemic
from By Mark Huber
Concern over the recent Ebola virus epidemic recently focused the global media spotlight on obscure Cartersville, Georgia, aircraft charter company Phoenix Air, and to a larger extent, the global air ambulance business. Phoenix evacuated medical aid workers Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol from Liberia last month on separate 14-hour flights in a specially modified 32-year-old Gulfstream III, call sign Gray Bird 333, which had once done duty with the Royal Dutch Air Force and was still painted in its gray military livery.
