I'm a bit perplexed as to the location in the main photo.  It looks like the bend in the taxiway at the Westwinds crash-gate but where's that concrete apron?!

And the distant treeline looks odd.

Is it actually Ards?  Must have been a while ago anyway in the days when the still had the Tecnam ( and four C172s! ).

I`m pretty sure that`s not taken at Newtownards-the backround is all wrong for Ards,perhaps a fly-in event somewhere :-\
