Round-up 9/1

As expected, very quiet over the holidays so 2 weeks between my reports. G280 N137GA (2137) was ferried Tel Aviv to Stansted on the 1st. Gulfstream Savannah had to close for a couple of days as heavy snow hit the area. See AIN report Changes to the G1 fleet are few and far between as it's believed there are no more than 10 still in service. N164PA (054) has N170PA reserved on the US register suggesting there may still be some life in this one. Very sad to see reports of a G150 (OE-GKA 300) captain being killed when he went to open the door of his aircraft in Kittilä, Finland.
See ASN.  Reports are suggesting aircraft was pressurised but am sure the full details will be revealed eventually. The current G650 demonstrator (N650GA 6275) has N675GS reserved which was it's original test reg. As it's their only demo machine, it's understood that it will be leased back to Gulfstream for about 2 months pending the arrival of N650ER (6306). The last N650GD (6252) went to Canada in November but was seen just prior to that at Farnborough by Westleigh Bushell.
