DA62 2-SALE
11:50 arr and I'm not there  >:(
12:14 dep

I got as far as the entrance to the airfield when it took-off.  Just hope the guy in the back doesn't lip-read me on the video he took.


PA18 G-PIPR
Still in for mx


The 'other' eastern JAB4 was out for an engine run this morning; lives in the hangar with G-CCEL but the reg escapes me right now.  NISPOT!

Which also reminds me that the other resident of that hangar, PA28 G-BNXU, hasn't yet returned from Wales.

The other Jabiru on the Eastern side is G-CBJM - haven't seen that one out of the hangar in ages!

Cheers!  He scuttled back into his shed and onto his little ramps before I could sneak a peak.

I got as far as the entrance to the airfield when it took-off.  Much faffing and swearing as I dug the kit out of the bag.  Just hope the guy in the back doesn't lip-read me on the video he took.



The DA62 said on the rt see you again tomorrow

2-SALE still in at 12:40 but smudge is outta time

Will therefore probably leave within next 10 mins.  Daft hobby.  Maybe I'll take-up crochet instead.

DA62 2-SALE
11:56 arr
12:56 dep

Due back tomorrow, again!



Residents up:

R44 G-HWKS
14:20 arr from Blackpool.  Harold back from his hollies!



Today I learned: when you set an FR24 e-mail alert for an aircraft, it only triggers once FR24 has obtained an MLAT position and NOT when it first receives the aircraft airborne.  For example 2-SALE today heading back east:

My receiver uploaded first packet to FR24 12:54
Wheels off ground 12:56:
FR24 alert generated 13:11
