One of the things I have learned over the years is to always have a camera with you. WE had probably the best day of the year 2 sundays ago and while relaxing on Inganess beach, I discovered that aircraft landing on runway 14 pass right over your head, so in anticipation of Leuchars, out came the camera.
First of all G-CKKD, a Kwik microlite and then one of our resident aircraft, G-BCPA Loganair Islander.
All too soon it was back to work and although I only caught it at long distance, G-SARC was passing through.
Shortly after we had a visit from N37172, King Air 350. This aircraft is owned and operated by Marks and Spencer.
And the first RAF visitor for a peedie while. You always know when a Tucano is around because they announce their arrival everytime. ZF448 was up from Linton on Ouse.
And thanks to Peter Henderson at the tower, I got a couple of minutes warning that a Hercules C130 was going to do an approach in a couple of minutes. I just had time to grab my camera before I saw this in the distance.
And although it is a fair distance away, I clearly can see the numbers ZH887, good job as the phone rang minutes later from a spotter wondering if I knew the tail number.
Thats it for now. I have been speaking to Tommy Mogren in Sweden who was the owner of the server which contained my previous blog. He has confirmed that all my previous ramblings are still intact and saved in a file. He is going to attempt to get the information to me. Be nice if I can get it all back.
Thanks for reading
All the best
