Images have appeared on the internet of a Gulfstream V business jet apparently stuck into melted tarcmac.
The aircraft (N222LX) belongs to Lexair of Wilmington, Delaware, but little else is known. The Professional Pilots' Rumour Network aviation internet forum is debating how the aircraft sunk into the ashphalt, with theories being advanced including an elaborate hoax involving digital photograph manipulation.
Flightglobal.com would like to know more about the incident. Do any readers know the aircraft in question and know when and why the incident happened?
