19:25 R44 G-KELI inbound from north.  'Aww not Harold' said Small Smudge

Dep 20:20 and returned 20:50.  I didn't notice it depart again so may have stayed overnight.  Very rainy now so I'm not going down to check :)

One register note, recent visitor A109 G-STNS is now registered to Mr McGarrity's fleet.  Quite an air force he has up there now.

06:50 Avgas delivery early this morning, looked like a Scania R-series hauling the trailer.

10:55 Beautiful noise, BE33 G-HOPE arriving with the gear and flaps dangling.

I had HOPEd to return later when (1) it had stopped raining and  (2) the club Cessnas had moved, but it departed too soon.  So here's your lying-on-the-grass shot for today.



1978 Model F33A; 285 hp. 



P28A G-AWIT still in



R44 G-CEAU and G-KELI still semi-resident.

Aha, so that's the reason so many Cirrus in Europe have N-regs: they can operate IFR here under FAA regulations.
