About the Beechcraft Premier 1

The Beechcraft 390 Premier 1 is an advanced jet constructed of a composite fuselage that saves weight, increases fuel efficiency, and allows more cabin room inside the plane.

It’s powered by a pair of WilliamsRolls FJ442A Turbo-fan engines.

The plane has a high-speed cruising rate of 519 mph. It’s certified to fly at altitudes of up to 41,000 feet.

Here is Roush Fenway Racing’s Premier 1. This photo was taken at Fleming Mason Airport in Kentucky on August 31, 2007. Photo courtesy Mike Day, Flemingsburg, KY.

Here’s how Mike described the scene:

Whilst monitoring I noticed that N38RY a Beechcraft owned by Robert Yates Racing, was going into my local field.

I went down to see if I could get a decent image of that, which I could not, but whilst there, got a good shot of the Roush Racing’s Premier 1, which had been in and out for a few days (think Jack Roush was born, or got tie’s to a local town nearby).

There were lots of people around, some dressed well, and the following morning a Chartered Learjet arrived from the Detroit area with more people on board, again all dressed in suits and ties.

Guess they were all in for either a wedding or a funeral.

Hope all the info and photo helps.
