On the 17th August, G650 N697GA (6197) departed Appleton as Gulf Test 17 on a test flight. This is nothing unusual but the route it took was quite special. The flight lasted 12 hrs 10 mins and reached a height of 49,000 feet (14,935 metres). Thanks to Flightaware for this graphic.

Michael Carter has sent me a shot of a recent G650 out of the paint shop at Long Beach. 9M-ZZZ is in the scheme of the Sultan of Johor. It will replace his G550 9M-TMJ (5493) which has been reported as being donated to a local football club next year. An earlier Gulfstream of his was G4 9M-ISJ (1106)
|9M-ZZZ and N593GA were at Long Beach by Michael Carter and 9M-ISJ was at Luton in August 2014|

When I visited Lanseria, South Africa in October last year, Gulfstream G2B ZS-DJA (156) looked like it was ending it's days in a hangar. Not the case it seems.
The good news is that it did a test flight at Lanseria today. Captured by my friend Michael Flebbe
