Chris Evans August was dominated by the Total Eclipse of the sun. Exeter Airport had temporary controlled airspace set up around it and lots of microlights, whose pilots had not read the notams, infringed it! The Airport was also "Prior Permission Only" to visiting aircraft for a couple of days which doubtless cut down the number of visitors that we may have expected but, at least, meant that the Airport staff could cope. The volume of helicopter movements increased dramatically during eclipse week. Both at the Airport and overflying. The Police sent the BK-117 to Plymouth for the week and had a pair of Army Air Corps Gazelles and the Twin Squirrel G-PASF based at Middlemoor. The Islander G-MAFF was based at the airport for most of August. Many, many, many light aircraft, microlights and helicopters flew over heading west but the vast majority are not recorded here. Three visitors on eclipse day were not spotted by many. Atlantic Airways sent a pair of Electras and a Sikorsky S.61N from Penzance were very early morning movements delivering daily newspapers from London. The following day a Concorde was an evening caller on the return leg of a QE2 cruise from Southampton to New York. The aircraft arrived from JFK and departed to Manston! An Air Leisure Boeing 737 (EC-ELY) operated two Futura flights and one of Spanair's new MD.83s called in on the 26th. Cityflyer ATR42s are now regular visitors to JETS for maintenance and there is a possibility that their ATR72s will also be maintained here. Two of their Avro RJ100s were noted crew training during the month. Other ATRs noted included G-BUPS of Titan and OY-MUH (the former N425TE) of Muk Air. As the Jersey European fleet of Fokker F.27s is slowly withdrawn and passed over to BAC Express there seems to be no reduction in the number of the breed maintained here. The BAC Express fleet is already catered for of course and two foreign registered examples were noted. OE-ILW of Amerer Air had been here before and I-FSTK of Eureca had previously visited when registered in Denmark. Shorts 360s continue to provide JETS with a lot of work. Loganair provided a "new" aircraft in the shape of G-BNMW and Swedeways brought in a couple of examples to keep the spotters alert. Flightline, British Regional and Braathens Malmo BAe.146s also helped to keep the maintenance hangar busy. On the Biz-Jet front there were a few interesting visitors. Air Luxor / Net Jets Citation 650 CS-DNF was a first time visitor when it called in on the 31st. Learjet OE-GMD was a very welcome visitor one Sunday morning on an ambulance flight. Another Austrian, a Falcon 10, and French Falcon 900 were noted on the 6th. The Falcon 50 N800BD, which called in on the 26th, used to be fairly regular here but not for the last 4 years or so. Gulfstreams were noted on the 9th (N101CV) and the 23rd (N125A). Two US registered Challengers (N757MC and N818TH) were also noted visiting. A Finnish Navajo was an unexpected sighting on the 30th and there were two foreign registered helicopters - Agusta 109 N133H and Gazelle F-GEHD, both of which are based in this country. Three aircraft which have remained dormant here for some time have recently had new life breathed into them. The Howard 500 N500LN flew several times and attended an airshow at Coventry. The Hunter PR.11 N723WT (ex WT723!) was re-registered as G-PRII and flew on several occasions. It has now departed to the Classic Fighters Museum in Belgium where it will continue to fly. Last January the museum took the Hunter T.7 XL601 for static display. Finally, after almost twelve months, the Beech Duchess OE-FMS c/n ME-247 (which many people may not even have known was here) was registered N247ME for it's FAA certification. It wore the taped on registration for a day! It has now become G-BYNY with a more permanent painted identity.Exeter residents list can be found on this link.
