Title: Ards Movements November 2015
Post by: smudge on November 02, 2015, 09:21:56 AM
Thanks to NISPOT for the October summary!

1st

AP22 G-FOXB arr around 14:00 and dep around 15:15

BN2T G-BSWR made a couple of orbits in the zone at 1,700 ft around 16:40 and then departed without landing.  Very pretty in the evening Sunlight.

Flying ended around 16:50 as fog suddenly formed.  G-UFCN seen here turning final in the twilight was followed by G-CGMW and possibly one other.

11th

10:45 PA31 N642P departed, can't remember the last time that one moved!  Quick jaunt and back on ground around 30 mins later.  Back to the usual parking spot but outside view of webcam now.

11:00 high-winged silver cabin monoplane departed, looked like Luscombe G-AKTI but not positively ID.


Also BE20 N509MV has had its rudder and tailcone removed at some point recently.  It did a maintenance run a couple of weeks ago so must be fairly recent.

Do you know if N509MV was just off for a flight to somewhere or is that it gone from being based at Ards?  ???
