I picked G-LEBE up on the 4th at 1624.  Has it been here since then at all or just in today?

Just arrived in Ards today, I didn't manage to speak to the pilots before they departed but I think it was up on the north coast over the weekend.  Possibly Bellarena. 

'Europa in the mist'.  Funny wee beastie, like a miniature U-2!

I notice on FR24 that N200RE is airborne from Blackpool.

Doesn't it usually come here?  It went to IOM.

Blimey I haven't logged that old dog since September last year.  Had forgotten about it :|

It's connected to St Angelo by some means.

10:25 AS50 N350UK inbound, emerging out of the fog.  Has been kicking-around NI for the past couple of days. Dep 11:55 heading SW, patrons of Cloud9 restaurant poured out to watch!

We arrived as it was winding-up to depart, no time to hoke around in the bag for a wider lens!



Back in briefly at 12:25 and away to the north.

Went over with the gear down but climbed away to the west

One for Smudge. Do you have any idea on this one?

Between 1829 and 1903 picked up on SBS:

N122CS - Cessna 182T Skylane c/n 18282414 - Textron Aviation Inc - European demonstrator 2016. 

Got it from FL080 down to 2200'.

Oooh! 

Logs suggest that it went past Ards a couple of times around 18:45 but seems to have then gone into Aldergrove.

Hmm that wasn't the most successful photo-visit, I could barely see the blighter...



17:20 P28T N2136E departed into the haze heading SE.  1978 PA-28RT-201, so that's the T-tail and tapered wing.  Group-owned at Sandtoft near Sheffield. 

Fog burned-off around 12:00 but I can still barely see Scrabo Tower.
