This year so far, four G200ís have gone off piste.

Honduras, China, Nigeria and the Philippines.

I donít think Gulfstream are the ones to apportion blame to.

I completely agree, having a look they do not appear to be an aircraft issue. My comment was more to do with bad press and media speculation from some Ďexpertí.
