Default GIII Operators? Whats in your Fly-Away-kit?

Hey, I'm looking for a basic equipment list for a GIII's Fly-Away-Kit.
You know, the stuff you really want in the back of the airplane when you land at a remote foreign airport and something is broken.

I would like someone who fly's GIII's currently or recently with knowledge of their kits contents to either list it here, or send me a PM with a is not my friend today.

ps. Don't worry, their would be an A&P onboard who could do the work....

Leave it in the plane and put your window locks in, lock your baggage door and use security tape.
If you are in some really awful place hire a guard to sit under the wing 24/7. I have done this at times. But you have to understand that the guard could be bought off and probably works for the criminals in some fashion. So you need to also hire a guard from a separate company to watch the guard from the first company. Paranoid? Yes, but if you are in Africa then anything goes. There are no rules and nobody from the USA govt. cares about you if you are there and have a problem.
My company has operated a GIV into various cities in the DRC. We'd bring our own 2 guys to guard the airplane over night. They would bring there own fire arms.

I have operated Gulfstream 2/3/4/5/450/550 for over 15 years, I have since moved on to the airlines (JB). Make sure that you take your nosewheel steering pin and lock it up when you are on the road. I have had one stolen once and you are dead in the water without it.
