Same again next Sunday at 3 if small smudge would like to see Santa?

Shameless plug alert...£20 flights on Santa’s helicopter available on the day.

14 December

R44 G-DENY
being preflighted in the hangar 10:00 so presumably departing soon
11:20 dep in rather nasty rain.  Perhaps they can outrun it.


Smudge's Second Rule of Spotting: the visitor departs precisely when I open my front gate.

No visitors noted for the past three days.  Thought we might have received PC12 G-KARE today disgorging its passengers for the hols but it seems to use EGAA now :(

Would that have been G-CHJZ perhaps? Maybe not,when I checked G-INFO,it now lives in Finland.

Arrived around 12:00.  Just escaped back home before the wind really picked-up, hit 30 knots here for a while.
