G-LPIN QuikR popped up on 13:42 on FR24 out of Ards - seems to be routing down the coast towards Kilkeel

14:39 G-SEEE GT-450 on FR24 just crossing the water now looks to be Ards bound

25 June ctd...

EV97 G-SINN
Inbound 20:45

The groups led out by Quik G-SEEE ( EE OC OD FK landed 21:27 ) and Quik G-LPIN ( GG IN OP SA landed 21:53 ) arrived back after smudge's bedtime to give 20 Fly UK overnighters plus two other visitors.

Or perhaps 21 if G-HOLE snuck back in...

Which is a good increase over seven in 2016 and 11 in 2017.

G-HOLE didn't return to Ards, he headed across the water to Scotland - currently in Glenforsa
