A damp start to the day for G-HALC.  1973 PA-28R-200 so that's a the untapered plank-wing and low-tail, no turbo. G-INFO claims it's an Arrow but due to its date of construction it's actually an Arrow II, stretched five inches and with 26 inches more span.



11:00 dep P28R G-HALC to Barra

12:00 arr, 13:15 dep RV4 G-RVDX

S92 EI-ICA was operating low over Strangford Lough around 16:00 - 17:00 but stayed out of the zone.

RRZ40 - G-VIPA - Cessna 182S Skylane.

I was just leaving the airfield when I spotted that parked-up in a corner and thought "that looks like a posh type of Cessna, suitable for a man of high office..."



Badge on tail is that of The Air Squadron.    Also a Jordanian Falcons badge on the flank, amongst others.
