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

G650 M-SHEF (6115) departed Ronaldsway earlier today continuing it's delivery flight to Biggin Hill. This frame was seen at Long Beach in March last year carrying VT-NKR but this deal fell through. This is now the 18th G650 on the Manx register. Thanks to Alex Henthorn for his picture.

Sales of the smallest Gulfstream in the range have been slow lately with only 5 being delivered in both 2014 and 2015. A total of about 120 have been delivered since the first one flew in May 2005. As Gulfstream have stated that "the future of the mid-size market is yet to be determined", this probably speaks volumes. The G280 however is going strong with the 100th being delivered recently.

Thanks to Eric Castelein for sending this pic of N55RG (001) at Charlotte a few days ago. This flew here in September 2012 and was supposed to be preserved in a museum but this shot possibly suggests otherwise. We hope this finds a proper home soon.
