No problem! Glad you enjoyed them. And yes, it should be SD. I accidentally typed Oklahoma out of habit lol.

As the Gulfstream editor for Scramble I'm following this with interest as well. If you come across the previous identity for the JCG G550, please post it here! :)
Cheers,
Gideon

02/16/2021:
1-) The JCG G550 (JA502A) was still parked outside of the service center, although it appears to have been rotated 180 degrees after last week. I was informed that it's most likely serial 5616 (N516GA) and it will be ferried out to the Netherlands for modifications in the coming weeks.
2-) US Navy P-8A Poseidon (168434) did several touch and gos
3-) US Navy C-37B (166376) made a quick pit stop and subsequently departed less than an hour later
4-) One of the local 165th AW C-130s (93-1561) arrived while another aircraft (didn't get the reg) departed for some circuits at Hunter
5-) A USAF C-37 is at the service center, although I drove by too quickly to note the registration and the specific variant (A or B).
6-) An Algerian Government G-IV(SP) (7T-VPS) was seen partially sticking out of a hangar at the service center
7-) N584GA, the green G550 waiting for conversion into an MC-55, is still outside of the modifications hangar after a few weeks or so
8-) A Turkish Government G-IV has been at the service center for a while. I'm almost certain that this is TC-GVB, which I managed to read off in late December.
