Thanks chaps!  Good to see the Chippie still flying.  I had many bored-then-suddenly-terrified experiences in those.

Forgot that the Circuit of Ireland time was upon us again.

07:50 PA31 N642P is more active these days.  Departed again to the south-east on a wee trip.


08:15 Now showing on FR24.  Interesting that their 'guess the airports' algorithm thinks it departed from Belfast City...

Like it!  Selfie and all.

'Airbus on board' was a good catch.

Not sure about the colour scheme though, going to be a bear to photograph grey helo against grey clouds!

There seems to have been a Cessna arrived this morning at 09:36 and it's been sitting on the webcam all day - visitor perhaps?  ???

Great work sir. :)  Not that busy with new things,probably due to the fairly poor weather-hopefully April will bring a few more visitors.
