Chris Evans COMMENTARY A nice quiet month enabled everyone to concentrate on their preparations for Christmas and the New Year but, those who forewent visiting the airport will have missed several "goodies". Long term resident Fokker Friendship HZ-KA8 was re-registered as 3C-AWW (Equitorial Guinea) and flew off to Southend reportedly for re-sale. Former Debonair BAE.146s G-DEBE, G-DEFK,L & M were noted with JETS during the month. They are now operated by Flightline - the last three on the Swissair contract formerly held by Debonair. They are based in Europe and, it is reported, will only visit the UK for attention by JETS at Exeter. Jersey European's latest Dash Eight G-JEDE was delivered on the 1st and the first of the Series 200s, due for delivery on New Year's Eve was delayed until late January or early February. Air Europa continued their Monday flights with Boeing 737-800s whilst Futura continued their winter services with their '400s. Monarch operated some flights with Airbus A.320 and Boeing 757s over the weekends and Air 2000 continued their Friday A.321flight. Tyrolean commenced their winter service to Innsbruck, initially with CRJs, but changing to Fokker 70s in the new year. ATP's were noted twice, once on a JEA flight and a second one which brought the Southend United team down to play Torquay United. There were even some Bristol and Plymouth weather diversions scattered throughout December, but not as many as in past years. Biz-jets were quite plentiful still, especially early in the month. Gulfstream variants were out in strength with up to 3 noted on a couple of days. Citation X N724CC was noted on the 2nd and 3rd, I still think it's a really strange shape! The Tulip Air fleet of King Airs and Navajos was also noted with a growing regularity. Other visitors included Citations PH-CTY and VP-CAT, BAE.125 OE-GHS and a Falcon 20 F-GSXF. Probably the most unexpected were the Metros D-ICRK and EC-hch on the 15th. You wait for ever for a Metro to call in, then get two on the same day! A couple of light aircraft types not often noted here were the Rackenford based Brantley B.2 G-ROTR which performed circuits on the 1st and the Guernsey based Navion N2548T which, I am told, should become a regular visitor. Eurocopter EC.120 G-ECZZ payed the first visit of it's type and one of the AA Air Ambulance Bolkow 105s G-NAAB was noted training on several occasions. The Cessna 152 EI-BIB arrived as a possible candidate for the Exeter Flying Club. A close inspection revealed a problem with the wings and the club decided not to buy it. Instead, another '152 (G-BXRN) was obtained and delivered from Oxford in early January.Exeter residents list can be found on this link.
