Perhaps G-RIET Dimona smudge as it's been about lately?  ???

Could well have been.  It was using rw 22 so unfortunately I couldn't see from my house.  Kept doing touch-and-goes and didn't seem to come in for fuel.

Unusually there was also a 'non-radio microlight' in the zone around 11:00. ID unknown but other aircraft were alerted to its presence.

Tayto's R44 G-CEAU in 15:45 away 16:20

PA28 G-BTAM in and out aruond 19:00 - 19:20. 

I saw a red-white PA28-a-like from a distance around the same time as the Taytocopter.  Initially I thought it was BATM but looking on the webcam it appears to have 'too much red'.  15:50.

Oh dear lol. That would probably be a rather unflattering photograph.

19th

R22 G-EMAC departing 09:55

Biplane G-__TN departed 11:18 heading for Ronaldsway.  Que?  I expected it to have been that Stearman that came in earlier in the month but that was G-THEA and it had a black fuselage.

2-ROAM departed 16:15, I arrived at EGAD just in time to see its arse heading down the runway  :(

But on the other hand... thanks to Whomever You Are in G-THEA which was up for a few circuits this afternoon.  You made a Small Smudge very very happy; he was the one in the pram to whom you waved :)



Of course it wouldn't be a Proper Photo without the Moon, eh?

Yep!  Smudge Family Outing.  Except Mummy Smudge who is busy earning a crust today. 

Pooch Smudge isn't the biggest fan of watching aeroplanes but he goes along just in case there's a gyro.

I was the one in the shorts walking up the apron as you were snapping, would have come say hello if I knew it was you! Do you mind if I send that picture to Rodney and the pilot Colin?
