Cheers!  Became very grey and claggy after that, not much salvageable from the afternoon's photos.

2017-01-22

10:00 arr / 10:55 dep AP22 G-FOXB


13:15 arr / 14:30 dep AP22 G-CBGJ.

Don't tempt me with an affordable aircraft!! [Starts listing car on Autotrader]

Resident Quantum G-BZSG was also out on the apron for inspection, apparently up for sale if you have 10k spare.

Weather is glorious in ards today. Numerous aircraft are attempting their best fly impressions. Breney is roosting in cloud nine

[on second thoughts and observations, maybe a swarm of midgets]

Looked like it was clouding-over around 15:00 but back to blue-skies now.

A few of the lesser-seen residents on the 21 approach this afternoon.  T600N G-EVEY was also up but I botched the shots.

X'Air G-CFJL



AP22 G-CWTD



Jabiru G-CCEL.  Has a little 'face' with the three intakes on the front of the engine cowling.

I was indeed!  I tried a different spot round near the commons, much better view of the 21 approach than from Clubhouse.
