Ards Movements March 2016
« on: March 01, 2016, 01:04:40 PM »
G-BONO and G-NIME still on the apron when I checked at 11:00 today

Here's one due to fly in April; we'll have to ask Mattyni to keep an eye out for the flight plan ;)

Just a phone-snap from the Chronicle but hopefully readable: Ards man commissioned by BBC to build replica of Ferguson monoplane

17th

14:20 R44 G-DORM arr <--- hmm not sure if landed, went past here very low but may have continued south

... followed a few mins later by R44 G-ONEP with a full load of passengers!

15:30 CRUZ G-MUTT arr.  Dep 17:20.

15:35 Whilst I was searching for that, a C42-ish with red markings slipped behind me!  Smudge needs to improve his ultralight recognition, they never taught those in ATC.

The red/white C42 would have been G-CBTG which was tagging along with G-MUTT  :)

Nice haul.

Apparently the collective noun for a group of pipers is a 'poverty' which doesn't seem to fit well with that Arrow!

The wings are currently being skinned in Ballerina, by a very talented gentleman up there. BBC are filming three part documentary about it - to be fronted by Dick Strawbridge. I believe filming has been ongoing all week thoughtout the country.

Inbound G-CBHA TB20

Circled Smudge Manor and departed eastwards!  Odd

People do like to come and wave.

Ah, did another circuit and landed at 16:35.  Parked-up now.
