Likely to be some traffic into EGAD today that are then heading for Enniskillen for the fly-in down there.
Weather for tomorrow looks dreadful.Heavy rain,followed by rain with a chance of rain. :(

16:00 AS50 N350UK went beating over me in Dundonald, landed around five mins later and departed 16:20

Around 16:05 a small red low-wing arrived, probably NG4 EI-MIR.  Departed 17:20 before I made it down to EGAD.

17:10 AS50 N350UK arr again from the NW.

The times tie up for GLHCB, the estimate for Tandragee was 1529 (local). There where no other helicopters on the frequency at the time.
