Aer Lingus Retro A320 currently based at Belfast
« on: December 23, 2011, 02:10:56 AM »
I've just noticed on Libhomeradar.org that Aer Lingus's retrojet (EI-DVM) is currently based at BFS. Just a heads up incase anyone was wanting to see it.

I have seen it quite a lot recently on the radarbox so that explains why. I'll keep an eye on it and post if its around.

I saw it coming in today around 1400 operating the Malaga flight.

It was pouring with rain so didn`t get any photos.

I heard it,but couldn`t see it due to the cloudbase being very low at BFS currently.

No sign of any great improvement in the daytime weather over the next few days,so I doubt I will manage to get a photo of it up here.
