Todays King  Air mystery...

I just caught the tail-end of G-CIFW heading out around 06:20 ( went to Southend ).  However I don't have a record of it arriving... ever.

Possibly snuck-in low from the north or north-west.  Any suggestions?

Dow Chemicals,  who have an office in Belfast.  I would have thought City would be more convenient!

It has been overhead many times in the past two years but I think this will be the first visit.

Todays King  Air mystery...

I just caught the tail-end of G-CIFW heading out around 06:20 ( went to Southend ).  However I don't have a record of it arriving... ever.

Possibly snuck-in low from the north or north-west.  Any suggestions?

I saw a Kingair arriving coming in to BFS on 25 approx 20 mins after the Antonov departed;only a brief glimpse as I was driving.

That should have been G-NIAA BE20 C/sign CWY999B

Thanks NISPOT,I thought it might be G-NIAA,it was also in on Saturday night just before the Antonov arrived-it used 35 for landing.
