1320 - If I heard correctly G-SGRP is using c/s Survey 1 and will be operating around Knock at 4000 feet. I assume this is Knock, Co Mayo.

Nice shot.

I thought I heard G-SGRP on the radio.

(Yorkair 05) is G-CGGD routing through Aldergrove overhead.

Landing at Newcastle then routing to Ards.

1900 Departed for Leeds/Bradford.

07:57 arr PA27 G-CALL.  Yellowish autumnal light today at EGAD, in between rain storms and peels of thunder. 



Circled in the middle distance is another historical oddity of Newtownards, a windmill stump sandwiched between houses on Millers Lane and Belvedere Road.   I used to play around it as a Small Smudge ( when it was just in open fields ) but these days it is encarcerated behind a high fence and locked gate.



10:50-ish arr EC20 G-IZOB.  Scarpered about an hour later.

Should be, yes.  Disappeared over the weekend and reappeared about 16:00 today but I think it was hangared.

06:50 dep PA31 N642P heading SE, looks like a similar route to that of last week.  Eerie noise echoed across the otherwise tranquil town.

08:55 arr  / 11:10 dep / 14:00 arr / 15:00 dep / 16:33 arr AS55 G-BYZA as PDG67.  Staying overnight.

DARD contractors with excavator removing all the foilage along the tide bank path. A disaster for the local wildlife :(

Several microlights up enjoying the autumn Sun this afternoon.  I noted flexwings G-MTKW, G-CBOO, G-MZLA, G-__OJ, G-OHKS and Jabiru G-CCEL and PNR2 G-CGMW.

08:25 dep AS55 G-BYZA

Not much else occurring in the 25 knots wind.  R44 G-HWKS did emerge for a while but seems to have returned to hangar, I didn't notice it departing.
