Looking at the direction of flight perhaps I picked it up wrong and it should have been Barra.

09:30 R44 G-DORM arr from the north.  Dep 10:25 back

Register note, frequent visitor R44 G-CLII ( ex-OY-HLE ) was reregistered as G-ENSX yesterday, ownership transferred from DMG to Ensix Wind Turbines in Magherafelt. Seems to have been operating for them for a while, photos at least back to early June:

What was the reg of the Stearman at Bray last year?  Isn't it locally based?

I see EI-ERZ in the list from Letterkenny.  I also got EI-AEL (PA-16 Clipper) on sbs which is supposedly also a Letterkenny resident.  Did it accompany ERZ?

I didn't see that one, unforuntately.  'ERZ pottered around the circuit a few times on Tuesday afternoon but appeared to be alone.
