Easy to get them confused-the TB20 has retractable gear,but the TB10 has fixed gear and optional gear fairings,apart from that it`s tough to tell the difference from a distance.

According to some articles about them, "The Caribbean Planes" is one of the unoffical nicknames for them,and the TB is a reference to Tarbes in southern France where they were built. :)

25th

12:20 R44 G-HWKS arr.  Change of ownership in progress... new resident perhaps? :D

Previous owners have upgraded to LongRanger, G-PWIT.


Up for a bimble this afternoon and back to EGAD for tea-time.

30th

11:45 PA32 G-KNCG arrived noisily.  Departed 12:25.

For those following on the Cherokee Chart it's a PA-32-301FT which makes it a Saratoga, with the tapered wing.

Perhaps that PA31 calibrator will call by this evening for fuel as it usually does

An RV burbling around this afternoon but keeping just out of identification range.

Could it be G-FCSL.  I had it down to 1900 feet.  Been operating locally all day.

R44 G-HWKS returned around 14:10. Following the links, this one looks like a 'stayer' at Ards. :D

PA31 G-FCSL arr 18:57 night-stopping.  More calibrating in the morning, I assume.

R44 G-ONEP departed 19:45... wiill it return?



Circuit of Ireland Rally next week.  Perhaps an AS55 for us?
