International Water Guard Part Of Historic Flight

International Water-Guard (TSX-V: IWG)
Basic Shares: 39.3 million
Fully Diluted: 46.5 million

International Water Guard (IWG) hit another milestone yesterday when it's most advanced water system took a test flight - on what will be the fastest, biggest corporate jet when it goes into service in 2012.
For 12 exhilarating minutes on November 25th, Gulfstream Aerospace's sleek new bird, the Gulfstream G650, took an abridged flight over Savannah, Georgia.

The test flight of the 11-18 passenger jet, that can almost match the speed of sound, was flawless, save a minor vibration in a landing-wheel door.

IWG's most sophisticated water system is standard technology on the aircraft but it was not in operation on this initial test flight.

IWG President & CEO, David Fox, said the water system would likely be switched on sometime next year as tests proceed.

"We are really pleased to see the flight test schedule underway ... and proud to be part of it," Mr. Fox added.
