Irish allies arrested meeting N478GS on arrival at Shannon:
Planespotters of the North Carolina group NCSTN (http://www.ncstoptorturenow.net
) photographed the rendition-linked aircraft N478GS at Fayetteville Regional / Grannis Field, November 28, 2007.
The N478GS arrived at Shannon 1:30 a.m., November 29. Two Irish allies, alerted by NCSTN, went to the airport in the public viewing gallery, having already requested the police to search the plane if it arrived. Instead, police arrived and arrested the antitorture activists as the plane arrived at the terminal building!
The activists were released after about an hour.
As one of the activists stated, "It will become an important test case to challenge why the Irish police have not (been) investigating or searching these CIA planes."
In September 2006, The Chicago Tribune reported that FAA records "show that ... in addition to numerous visits to Europe and the Middle East, [N478GS] made repeated landings at a half-dozen U.S. Air Force and Navy installations, including Andrews Air Force Base, near Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where hundreds of suspected terrorists are incarcerated."

An even bigger fish is the Guantanamo Bay Express, shown in three other photos. The first of these shows protestors in front of the Aero Contractors, Limited, hangar at the Kinston Global TransPark in North Carolina. In the other two, unnamed persons photographed the flagship of the CIA's torture fleet INSIDE THE HANGAR.
