22nd

R44 G-CDCV arr 12:15 dep 13:30 westbound. 
  Returned 16:00 dep 16:45 to Carlisle.  I haven't heard anyone say QSY in some time...

C172 G-TDRA resident making one of its rare jaunts at 16:40.  Returned around 18:30.

PA31 G-VIPP arr 17:15 as VOR31.  Appears to be staying overnight ( cheaper parking than EGAA?! ) so perhaps heading back up the road tomorrow for more calibration fun.

G-TDRA as you say is rarely out and about,especially at this time of year-usually it`s more active in Spring.

23rd

PA31 G-VIPP dep, heading to or via Blackpool.

It's there prop-sync on the Chieftains?  Sounded a little 'unbalanced' versus the Woodgate ones.

Haha!
Big beast of a machine, towering over the standard-issue Cessnas.  Has that impossibly-skinny looking retractable gear

Also noticed that R44 TBTB is still with us, on hangar with engine panels removed.  GILI still active.

Microlight G-KEPP inbound at 12:15.  Haven't heard that one before, but it's registered to owner in Ballywalter so might be another resident I've overlooked...

Looks like A109 M-IDAS arriving over my head 11:50.  It was indeed, dep around 14:20

VEZE G-KENZ inbound 18:10 but unlike everyone else today he won't be using rw 15.  So I won't see him again!

Any ideas on ID for this Thruster?  Arr 16:15 on 29th and looks like it was wheeled to a hangar.

Colour scheme same as EI-DNR but looks like a G-reg.

Picking through a backlog of photos to be processed I found a few of R44 G-GILI and I was surprised to discover that it was exported to the USA after 2015-11-30.  It became N303SP of Spur Helicopters in Laredo, TX: "Aerial wildlife surveys, predator control, cattle work, and line patrol..." They kept the livery :D



Here's the latest-dated photo I have of Newtownards' favourite red helicopter, from 2015-09-26.

Just keeping NISPOT on his toes :)

Turns-out that Spur Helicopters / Spur Aviation also took the former G-TBTB, now N164SA:



Is there a tunnel from EGAD to KLRD...?

Why is that lady smashing a vase of flowers over the man's head?

So many questions.
