January 2003: Global Air (GAO) is being sued in the Brisbane Supreme Court by the Japanese government for $7 million after its 747SP airplane failed to show for what has been described as a "James Bond-style mission" to spirit alleged terrorists out of Jordan. (GAO) was supposed to provide its 747SP to fly Japanese members of the "Red Army," who were allegedly involved in the massacre of 26 people at Tel Aviv Airport in the 1970's. The (GAO) 747SP has never obtained its Australian airworthiness certificate and has been grounded. Documents filed with the court show (GAO), headed by failed OZ Airlines, chief, Luke Butler, signed an agreement with the National Police Agency of Japan in March 2000 for the bizarre mission. In its statement of claim, the Japanese government says the arrangement was for the leased airplane to fly police officers and members of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office "to meet and collect certain other personnel in the Middle East and return them to Japan." The agreement was for the transport of up to 60 passengers, with plans for the airplane to leave from either Narita Airport, Tokyo, or Okinawa, with a flight plan that would take it to Cairo, and then on to Amman, Jordan. Papers show the Japanese government paid $1.2 million upon signing the agreement, and also telegraphically transferred $6 million to (GAO) to complete the transaction. On the day the charter was due, (GAO) notified Japanese authorities that airworthiness inspections on the airplane were not completed. Court documents show that (GAO) will argue the intended use of the airplane was unlawful and prejudicial to the administration of justice "because its purpose was to extract persons without lawful process."
May 2005: Global Air (GAO) operates on-demand passenger and cargo charter flights. (GAO) also runs a wet-lease operation called "Global Air Lease." The airline's fleet is subleased to other operators.
August 2011: FLY Leasing Ltd (BBB) has agreed to purchase a $1.4 billion portfolio of 49 airplanes previously managed by Australia-based, Global Aviation Asset Management. The airplanes are currently on lease to 23 airlines.
