Nice group of P28As passing-through this evening.  G-EHAZ, G-CLEA, G-SNUZ of Freedom Aviation, Chippenham.

Departed from 18:40 onwards.

Approaching Lisburn 18:50, working 128.500 individually.  Only 'EHAZ transponding.

There may be something on their Facebook Group page about their destination, but non-Bacefookers cannot view it :(

The Grobs were last seen being loaded on to a lorry.


I used to be in the Air Cadets A while ago and got my silver wings by doing my solo flight ;) but I don't see why they are gone :(

Hmm Vigi apparently not likely to return to service with any VGS, from Internet rumour.

Don't know why but apparently a 'pause' in flying commenced in October 2014.

Thanks for checking!

CLEA made it past me but I managed to stumble out the back door to catch the other two westbound into the Sun.  SNUZ did a particularly nice flypast!

Nice!  Hope you managed to avoid the hail.

Now, my source had me expecting AS350s!  A spot of 'corrective action' required for him...

1540 ICG S-92 making am awesome noise throughout Ards.  Gas and go I think

Some cars on apron from 1520 so might have been expecting the visit

Wish I'd brought radio with me...

Home now
 
It was EI-ICD, doesn't look like it actually landed if the Mode-S alt data is correct.  Descended from 4,250 ft at 15:20 and did a lot of work down around 500 ft fr the next 1.5 hours.  Still logging it at 600 ft at 16:45

17:45 S-92 EI-ICD back in the area but doesn't sound like he'll be landing; topped-up down South and has an endurance in the search area of 3hrs 15 mins...

Will recover back to Dublin when finished

Working 128.300 as RESCUE 116

Quiet Spring day down at EGAD, not a lot happening

G-TDRA appears to be having some attention to its engine.

Merlin MW6 G-MZHG was ground-running, haven't seen that one in a while.

G-BYZP at the fuel pumps on the 30th.  Cute little thing.

The Luscombe G-AKTI went up for a jaunt last night around 20:05, don't see it coming back on the webcam.  Now that's one I'd love to catch in the air, brings back memories of Richard Bach books.
