Good work on the June list, NISPOT!

G-OAJL was doing some circuits on the afternoon of the 1st.  G-FOXB was up and around in the early afternoon and departed around 15:30.

5th

16:05 R44 G-ETNT landed Ards after a busy day. 

Brieft glimpse through trees gave positive tie-up that it is using incorrect Mode-S code 40134A.

Dep 17:00 to private site in Bangor.

Later moved via Carrickfergus and Ballyclare to ( I think ) EGAA.

He caused a bit of a flutter after turning back inland, Belfast Radar had a BEE relaying calls for him but no response!

Last plot I had was near Lisburn so presumably back to Tandragee.

Dark R44 G-??TE arrived 09:15. 

G-GATE from Durham would seem to be the only match.

Departed in the rain 12:15

8th

AS55 G-VGMC was operating in the area most of the day and called in around 13:05 for an hour.  Looks like it took some fuel.

9th

Woodgate's PA31 G-JAJK busy at the field on a CWY11_ sequence of flights. 

Not sure if it's officially acquired yet but AP22 G-CWTD was up quite a bit yesterday and being inspected by various folks.

The Small Blue Thing visited again around 13:40 and away an hour later, missed it on radio.

Cheers!  So possibly G-BZKO which has visited before.

Jodel visiting around 13:00, I think it was G-AYUT with red underside and blue cowling.

Now that would have been a photo, bright red AS50 N330MG highlighted by the Sun against the slate-grey clouds.

Go around and do it again for me :)

12th

AP22 G-FOXB departed around 16:00.  Had arived at the start of the month.

The C152 G-UFCO that Matt predicted arr around 18:40, did it come up in pair with G-UFCN? Of course I didn't have the radio on at the time  :-\

C310 N315P was an unusual and brief visitor, in 21:50 and away five mins later.  Probably from IoM ( landed there on the 10th ) and home base appears to be Full Sutton near York:

I see G-UFCI is showing in FR24 on its way back from what looks like Dundee. Currently off the west coast of Scotland at 3500 feet.

They're too wee to read their regs :D

I see M-BONO sneaked in.

Spotted a poster for Car Culture event at the airfield next weekend, will check NOTAM to see if runway affected
