Summary

 

N614RD is a Gulfstream IV jet. It is highly likely that it was hired by the CIA for the rendition of Zubair from Thailand to Afghanistan in June 2003. N614RD left Elmira-Corning Regional General Airport (KELM) - home airport for the International Group LLC, the charter company that also operates renditions aircraft N63MU - on 14 June 2003, and flew to Washington Dullies International Airport (KIAD). From there it flew north and west, heading for Cold Bay Airport in Alaska (PACD) and then cross-Pacific to Kansai International Airport in Japan (RJBB). After Japan the aircraft flew to Thailand, landing at Don Mueang International Airport (VTBD), just outside Bangkok. This is where Zubair is liklely to have been loaded onto the aircraft, having been detained in Thailand several days before, on 8 June, before it took off again, flying first to Bandaranaike International Airport, Sri Lanka (VCBI) for refuelling and then Kabul (OAKB) and Bagram Airbase (OAIX) in Afghanistan. Zubair would have been offloaded at one or other of these Afghan airports.
