Chris Evans. The main event during May was the Newton Abbot Festival of Transport celebrations over the weekend of the 13th & 14th. Several vintage types visited even though the flypast over Newton Abbot had to be cancelled. Visitors inclded a Waco, a Hornet Moth and a Dragon Rapide which flew pleasure flights on both days. Probably the star of the event was the based Howard 500 N500LN which was towed from it's hangar and put on display on the "D" hardstanding opposite the Exeter Flying Club. It was the first time in ages that it had been seen outside it's hangar and the close-up look was appreciated by many. The Saturday was also enlivened by the arrival of The Aga Khan in his Gulfstream 4 along with his Bell 214 which took his entourage down to Plymouth for the day. Unfortunatly, poor weather on the Sunday prevented any more arrivals. On the 4th the Atlantic Airlines DC-6 G-SIXC made a very low overflight, 1000 ft!, on it's way from Spain to Coventry. It was great to hear the rumbling of those piston engines! There were a lot of BAE.146 movements connected with Jersey European Technical Services (JETS) during May. One significant departure was that of G-OINV on the 16th. This aircraft had spent what seemed an age at JETS whilst awaiting CAA approval to enter service. Another British Regional aircraft noted was G-MABR.The Business Air/ British Midland Commuter/ Lufthansa fleet of G-CLHA to G-CLHD were noted at various times. G-MANS appeared only to be re-registered as G-CLHC and painted in the "Team Lufthansa" colours. Flightline's G-DEBE/G-DEFE and G-TBIC along with Titan's smart looking G-ZAPN and Formula One's new G-OFOM also visited. Not seen for a while with JETS was the Islandsflug ATR.42 TF-ELK which was here for a week or so and a new airline was noted in the shape of Euroceltic Airways. Their Fokker F.27 G-ECAH looks very smart in it's new colours and is familiar to Exeter enthusiasts as the former G-JEAH. Shorts 360 G-BLCP returned from it's lease to Aer Arran whilst the former Gill Airways G-RMCT arrived to be repainted and re-registered as EI-BPD for Aer Arran. The first visits of Croatia Airways Airbus A.319 and British World Boeing 737s were also recorded in May. The A.319 was operating holiday flights whilst the '737 and a British World BAE.111 operated pilgrimage flights to Lourdes. Air Transat and Eurocypria restarted their now familiar summer operations as did Airtours with their "new" Airbus A.320 G-JOEM - the former Virgin Atlantic G-OUZO. Sata International also recommenced their Saturday morning Faro rotation. New Futura Boeing 737s continue to turn up with EC-HME the latest to date. Another new airline noted was Platinum Air 2000 who flew in with Jetstream 31 G-PLAH on the 8th. The 27th saw the arrival of BASE Airlines Brasila PH-BRL which stayed for a couple of days on the western apron. In a British Airways colour scheme this was, I think, another airline new to Exeter. Jersey European Airways announced a name change to British European. BAE.146 G-JEAS has been given the new titles and a revised "arrow" logo. Since then, the newly delivered Canadair Regional Jet G-JECB (which arrived in the old JEA colours) has received the new scheme. Dash 8 G-JEDZ remains in the old scheme at the time of writing. JMC Airlines has announced that it will be flying from Exeter to destinations which include Cyprus and Lanzarote during the summer 2001 season. The military were very active during May. On several weekends a fleet of 4 or 5 Bulldogs flew in from Colerne for Air Cadet air experience flights. A Jaguar GR.1A visited for a refuel as did many RAF and Army helicopters. An RAF Merlin operated several training schedules from Westlands Yeovil factory. There were also approaches by Royal Navy Hawks, Harriers, Jetstreams and Sea Kings.
