Summary

N308AB is a privately-owned Gulfstream IV executive jet, which was chartered by the CIA through the DynCorp/CSC contract. The aircraft can be linked to multiple rendition circuits, including the August 2004 rendition of Laid Saidi from Afghanistan to Algeria, and more than one potential rendition flight out of Romania. The aircraft also travelled to numerous suspicious destinations between 2003 and 2006, including flights into Egypt and Libya.

The aircraft has been operated, (from 3 June 2006 - 5 March 2011), by Prime Jet, a charter company established in 2003 and based in Englewood, Colorado (close to some Jeppesen offices) and Scottsdale, Arizona. This company also operated two further Gulfstream IV jets linked to the programme: known renditions aircraft N248AB, as well as N614RD, which flew into Kabul in June 2003 in a circuit planned by Universal Weather and Aviation. N308AB has also had trips planned by Base Operations, a trip planning company for the US military. Other trips have been planned by International Trip Planning Services LLC, based in Houston.
