22nd

All-black Hughes 500 N500HL in around 13:40 for a drink of Avtur and away about an hour later.  I was in Belfast :(

Oh, it's technically a 369HS.  Is 500 just a marketing name? Yes, apparently.

Based in Kerry I think.

29th

12:20 P28R G-BHGY arr.  A 1973 Arrow II

15:05 R44 G-CLII passed-by descending, looks inbound.  Yep departed northwards around 15:30

17:30 DR40 G-BKVL arr

Unfortunately by the time I made it down to the airfield everything was closed-up so I could only peek over the fence.  Both the Arrow and Robin stayed overnight.

30th

11:15 TB20 G-CTIO arr

11:20 White R22 arr and later departed heading SE.  I think NISPOT knows the reg for this one :)

Taytocopter R44 G-CEAU passed by heading south to Ballyquintan but I don't think it landed.

Also I note that VEZE G-KENZ now has full ADS-B out.

Aha, snuck in last night then?  Small Smudge will have to think of an additional name since Harold has already been assigned.

R44 G-CEAU back in the area now ( 16:00 ).  DR40 preparing to depart.
