MCR1 G-CDBY

Had arrived 10 August

C42 G-OSTL
14:20 arr
Went to western hangars.  Staying?  Nope
16:20 dep

C172 M-BONO
18:00 dep.  Did he sneak in on Friday evening?



Busy afternoon on runway 15 but rather flat grey backlight made photos a bit tricky. 

Anyway here's JAB4 G-CNAB going over Smudge Manor, I don't think we've had a photo of this newish resident yet.  Big flaps and wee ailerons.



And P28A G-BNXU back from its fortnight in Wales, had departed 29 July.
