Survey Season 2021
« on: April 24, 2021, 11:30:56 AM »
2021-04-22/23/24  C404 G-BWLF doing survey tracks at 4,500ft over south Armagh and into Fermanagh ( first attachment ). Working out of EGNX East Midlands but called into EGAA last night for a pee.

2021-03-24 BE20 HB-GLB north / south tracks over Antrim at 16,000ft, from the altitude I assume synthetic-aperture radar rather than laser / optical / magnetic.  Working out of EIDW Dublin.
Edit: perhaps not, looks like they specialise in medium-altitude optical:

PC6T D-FIBE
Unusual flightpath over south Down this morning ( 07:10 to 07:45) out of EGPK, as attached, instead of its more usual straight lines.

Looks like its going round the bed rock borders
It's very silty round those areas. The bit between Downpatrick and Dundrum is actually an island it's just all clogged up and the water all goes through strangford
