Bright yellow R44 G-NESH was logged in the Ards area.  Set-down around 19:00 last night and lifted around 10:15 this morning but I didn't spot it.

15:50 arr, 16:15 dep R44 G-NESH heading NW.  Appears to have had the Hong Kong national flower ( orchid-tree blossom ) removed from the vertical tails, but is still registered to an HK address.



16:25 arr C172 M-BONO

16:30 dep PTS2 G-EWIZ to Causeway.  Initially he appeared to be heading to the Moon but he eventually levelled-out.

17:15 arr C172 G-BYNA, parked-up on BONO's pad.  Unfortunately it's never a photogenic spot.



Reims F172H built in 1968, not 1969 as G-INFO states.

14:00 dep PA31 G-CITY to Ronaldsway.  Had arrived 2016-09-09.

Around the same time EC35 G-PSNI was operating low in the area as UKP441, seems to have set-down for an hour but I don't think it landed at EGAD

Blimey, that got everyone's attention!  Smudgephone started ringing.

ZJ957 for an ATC visit. Photo shoot for Wings appeal etc, should be plenty of photos in the Chronicle this week!

Did two damp AEFs for the cadets and then departed 16:55 to EGAA with a crate of Carlsberg secured in the cabin.

Quick snap through the spotter-unfriendly fence.



Lots of defensive aids but still no IR suppressors.  Go figure...

Inbound from Enniskillen - G-HWKS - R44.

Harold returns!  Small Smudge is most pleased.  He didn't like the Puma, "too old too noisy"

R44 G-KELI dep 16:17 as G-HWKS was inbound, changeover?

Low-wing piston hdg NE over Ards quite high at 17:30.  Ah, N129SC heading to EGAA.
