Yeah he came over from Scotland earlier in the morning, headed down to Downpatrick to probably drop off a passenger, as he was only on the ground for a minute or two, then headed up to land at Newtownards.
He then made the exact same journey in reverse 5 hours later, picking up in Downpatrick and then heading north.
He didn't like being over water very much, as he took the safest route, staying over land as much as possible, coasting in/out just north of Cushendun , across to Campbelltown etc...

Thanks for that. I think it may have been in connection with the funeral of the founder of Finnebrogue
