1219 - inbound for rwy 03:
G-DIAT - PA28-140 Cherokee F.  Probably came from Sandtoft.



Something I've just discovered is that the IAT in the reg is indeed for International Air Tattoo, having been re-registered thusy in 1989 when bought by the RAF Benevolent Fund Enterprises at Fairford.  Flew with them until 2004.

1223 - inbound from private site in the Mournes:
G-LARR - AS350 B3 Squirrel of TSL Contractors Ltd.

That arrival required a frantic change of lens...

Wilga running-up at 13:20 but won't fly for a wee while yet. 



It subsequently taxied to the Helipower hangar at 15:30, I tried a video for a change but Youtube does bad things to the propellor.  Original was shot at 50fps and is much better.

Note to passing cyclists: prop-wash from Wilga washes to port and is remarkably strong...

Rather an ususual event near EGAD today.   Army EOD was summoned to  Regent House School, which lies near the rw 15 approach, to conduct a controlled explosion on a substance, presumably dinitrophenyl hydrazine ( 2,4-DNPH ).

Looks like they've had a busy week:

Unfortunately my 'source'' was not able to make a video of the event, havi
