Are you sure that's the right reg smudge, I can't remember it ever being based at Ards and it's registered to a Lancaster address?  ???

You are quite correct, it does appear to be an arrival.

Handy that the wings fit between the main gear!

Tim Gallagher, one of Ken Cromptons students bought her before Christmas but due to the airfield she resided at being turned into a lake thanks to the rains he decided to head over himself with one of his lorries and pick her up on Friday.

She'll be staying at Ards so feel free to add her to the residents lists. The wings were successfully fitted yesterday afternoon and he is hoping to get her up on Saturday weather permitting for any spotters interested!
