Ah so that what went over me, about 11:50 but wasn't descending.

Mode-S has it down to 1725ft at 12:01 and exactly the same alt at 12:43.  EGAC usually goes well below that for me, so not sure where it went.  Perhaps a survey flight?

Many thanks for that info. Yes I did think that too, although a friend who's involved with that particular operation tells me supply movements are completed when she's berthed alongside in port.  Ship operator had broad scottish accent, so that narrows it down a little... lol!  ;D

Ah,well spotted sir,I wonder if it might call into BFS for fuel?

UPDATE - Looks to be heading more easterly EGAD perhaps ?

Caught a small glimpse of it in the distance in Newcastle. Too far away for the camera though.

Gazelle up over Armagh.

Anyone pick anything up over Newcastle?

I was coming out of Lidl car park, and a bright Red/Orange aircraft flew quite low. Looked like a  Piper PA-22, going by the colour I would think G-ARDS?

 My friends dashboard cam should have caught it so I will check it out later again.

It`s unlikely to have been G-ARDS,it has been resident in York since 2013.

Was it a high,mid or low mounted wing ?
Probably best not to go into too much detail here,because someone must have been rather naughty to fly at low height. ;)

High mounted wing from what I remember. Didn't realize G-Ards was away.

Edited my original post so as its not too detailed. Was a fun flypast to say the least lol.

Could fly at 1ft if you wished, just need to be 500ft away from any person or object!

There was a Red Thing at EGAD yesterday, departed around 16:05 / 16:10

Times and outline correspond with IoM-based C42 G-CEGZ.

Update 2: G-CEGZ confirmed as still in standard white.  So still puzzled.

Perhaps Thruster G-CBVA over for a visit from the western hangars?

Times and outline correspond with IoM-based C42 G-CEGZ which visited but I've never seen an all-red C42 before!  I thought they were always white due to the anti-UV coating used.

Update: apparently it can be done, here's a different C42 EI-ELC all-red:

Not sure that's a C42? I seen a red taildragger flying low round 5:50pm. That was round the South Down area heading south. It would match better with the description here

Dunno either, that's the only evidence I have :(

Other local red-thing options:

TAYB G-BPHO ( taildragger )
PA22 G-BTKV ( trigear )
X'Air Hawk G-CFJL ( red trigear but with splashes of blue )

I wonder could it have been a Land Africa,or an Aeronca of some type - they look similar to the C42.  :-\

The EGAD Red Thing was resident X'Air Hawk G-CFJL.  Landed back around 17:25.

So just the South Down Red Thing remains a mystery.
