Bob, The Gulfstream you saw was probably a GIII. The GIII has the older Rolls Royce Spey engines that are not the high by-pass fans that the GIV's or GV's have today. The GIII does have winglets. In addition, there are GII's that have been modified with GIII wings, complete with winglets, and with a GIII nose, which are more aerodynamic. The modified GII still has the older engine. The GII does not have the wrap around windscreen like the GIII, IV, or V. While I have not personally flown a modified GII, I hear they perform very well.. Gary Gary "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
