Twin turbo passed over Lurgan around 10:55am. Any idea what it was?

Active on frequency around that time was G-NFLA J31.


Also there was a Woodgate Chieftain on a 999

Could have been the Chieftain. The thing that I did notice about it was that the engines protruded from the back of the wing as well as the front, G-NFLA only protrudes to the front.

I think most of the chieftains are now painted a metallic blue colour if that helps you Id it. Its also a piston engine rather than a turbo prop.   :)
