AP reports that it is a "new Lockheed Martin G1." AP, 10 August 2006. Actually, there is no Lockheed Martin G1. There is the Gulfstream G1, a.k.a. Grumman G-159, a two-engine turboprop, produced 1959-1969, so it is also not "new." AP's misinformation about the TV Martí airplane dovetails nicely with Reuters' misinformation that TV Martí is not yet transmitted via satellite. See previous post on this subject.
