Thought it was about time for me to bring things up to date. Kirkwall has been very busy and we have had a number of new and unusual aircraft in. In a previous post I told you we had a visit by a beautiful King Air registration M-FIVE.
I got a chance the next day to take a few further pics as the pilot was very hospitable so I am now able to say “and the inside”
We had a visit from SE-DJH, Citation
And a fleeting visit from G-PDGR, obviously a squirrel
It was a pleasant surprise to find Andrew Brown back in Kirkwall with his wife, in this case G-WIFE, his C182. I had to take a second look though as she now is the proud owner of a 3 blade prop.
We also had a couple of bizjets in today, first of all M-CICO, Falcon 50
And another first for me, HB-JRV, a Geneva based CL60
That’s about it for now apart from what I heard on the news tonight. It seems “Mr Loganair” Scott Grier who has made Loganair what it is, has decided to retire.
He is an amazing man and is well known in Orkney. I believe he is going stay on for the next two years in an advisory capacity, however, I and I am sure everyone else wishes him the very best.
This is Scott on the right with the local engineering team as you have probably never seen them before taken 6 years ago at the formal opening of the hangar. Yes!!! 6 years ago.
That’s it for now, as always thanks for taking the time to visit
All the best
