Chris Evans COMMENTARY The airport did not really suffer from the effects of the fuel crisis although, at one stage, there was a threat that the airport might run out of supplies. A delivery was made just in time to prevent any major problems. An ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) was noted on VHF frequency 119.325 making test transmissions. For the uninitiated, an ATIS is an automatic weather and airfield conditions reporting system. Apparently the system did not perform as well as hoped and has been returned to the manufacturers for "tweaking". I hope they kept the box and didn't pop all of the bubble wrap! A couple of other radio frequencies that may be of interest for those with scanners with a UHF capability were noted being used by the ground handling operation and by ATC. They are 459.900 for operations (includes the marshallers etc) and 459.575 for ATC to talk to vehicles on the airfield etc. Two surprise airliner visitors during September were Boeing 737s G-OBWY of British World on the 14th and the first '700 to visit, OY-MRE of Maersk, on the 28th. They were both involved in trooping flights to and from Pristina in Kosovo. This was also (unsurprisingly) the first time Pristina had ever been a destination from Exeter! Also on the 14th a BAE-111 of European Aviation called in with passengers from a Plymouth bound ferry which had broken down. Atlantic Airways BAE.146 OY-RCA visited BEAS for re-registry as G-CLHE for a six month lease to British Midland Commuter on their Lufthansa services. Several other aircraft from the BM Commuter BAE.146 fleet were also noted. Fokker F.27 G-JEAF returned from it's lease to Eureca (as I-JEAF) on the 27th and spent some time on the northside along with the two Euroceltic examples G-ECAH & G-ECAT. All of the IT flights maintained their usual schedules (is no-one going to get the registrations of the Sunday evening Eurocypria A.320s?) and there was nothing out of the ordinary to report. Spanair did use a couple of their "new" MD.83s in the shapeof EC-HNC and 'HOV though. The most exotically registered biz-jet to visit was BAE.125 YL-VIP on the 24th - although it is fairly common at other UK airports. There were a smattering of Gulfstreams including both Wrigleys examples on the same day! A Gulfstream 3 N155MM (c/n 325) foxed most people as it was a new one to us all. As usual the Citation in it's various forms was the most poular mode of executive transport with British, French and American registered examples noted. There were also French Falcons (a '10, a '20, a '900 and a '2000) as well as a German Challenger and Learjet for the biz buffs. Two US registered Super King Air 300s visited during the month as did perennial visitor Cessna 425 N425HS from Antwerp. The shooting season must be on it's way - Falcon 20 PH-BPS reappeared! An Irish registered Glasair visited along with a British example on the 3rd whilst the 16th saw two Beagle Pups - a type which is quite rare here these days. A couple of rarely seen residents were also noted. Horizon G-BYBL and Lancair G-PJMT do not often see the light of day and were both recorded for the first time this year.Exeter residents list can be found on this link.
