The team at Gulfstream Aerospace are celebrating after the high-performing Gulfstream G550 recently established a new city-pair speed record.  The jet took just 10 hours and 29 minutes to connect Shanghai with Seattle. That super fast time brings the number of records the jet has earned to an amazing 55. 

The aircraft departed Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport at 2:09 p.m. local time on April 19 and arrived at Seattle’s King County International Airport-Boeing Field, at 9:38 a.m. local time, completing the 5,123-nautical-mile/9,487-kilometer flight at an average speed of Mach 0.85.
