Chris Evans. April was quite a busy month for airliners as the winter timetables changed to the summer. Sundays were a busy time with Air 2000 Boeing 757, Airbus A.320 and Spanair MD.83 operations. The 11th even saw an Air 2000 A.321 instead of the A.320 along with a Caledonian A.320. Caledonian also visited on the 4th. There was a one-off visit by Croatia Airlines using a Boeing 737-200 on the 28th. Britannia called in twice with Boeing 767's to and from Barbados as part of a fly-cruise package holiday deal. The main emphasis during the month was the re-establishment and expansion of the summer Futura and Spanair rotations to and from Spain. There were diversions intermittently throughout the month. The bulk coming on the 9th and included two Sabena BAe.146's and Euroscot's ATR.72 G-BXXA. The two ex-Thai ATR.42's (G-BYHA and G-BYHB) that were thought, at one stage, to be destined for Jersey European arrived for attention by JEA Engineering. They are now resplendent in 'Italy First' colours and have been parked on the northside since repainting. They have been joined by ex-TWA Express ATR.42 N425TE which, I am told, is destined for Titan Airways later this year. Turkish registered aircraft are not common here, but the former Sonnmez Airlines Shorts 360 TC-AOA was a welcome exception (see the May movements for two more Turks)! Re-registered G-EXPS, repainted in BAC Express colours and named 'City of Exeter' it was still present during late May. Citations were prominent amongst the biz-jet visitors as usual. Examples visiting included N829CB and N966SW along with the more familiar G-BJIR, G-JETA, G-ZAPI, F-GLIM, PH-MEX and PH-MFX. Three Gulfstream 4's were noted, the regular N411WW along with N1SL and VP-CBW. Whatever happened to all of the Gulfstream 2's? We have not had one in for ages (that should guarantee one for next month)! Falcon's were few and far between, but Falcon 2000 N18CG redressed the balance somewhat. Jet Provost T.4 XP672/03 (G-RAFI) performed a fly-by on the 18th. It has recently been repainted into the light grey colours along with the light blue / pink roundels formerly favoured by some Hawks - and the Tornado F.3's. Very smart. The Rennes Flying Club brought three of their aircraft over that weekend to visit the Exeter Flying Club and , by all accounts, had a very enjoyable time. Light types, not seen here very often, included the former resident Cessna 336 Skymaster G-ATAH. I'd forgotten how noisy they can be! A Robin R.3000, PH-SPE, and a Beagle Pup (EI-ATJ) were also noted. An unidentified Shaw Europa ground-looped one day. As G-NEAT was the only example noted was this the one? The military were fairly quiet, no doubt concentrating on events elsewhere. The only recorded visitors were a Jetstream T.3 on the 12th and two Chinooks on the 14th.Exeter residents list can be found on this link.
