Based Aircraft Update 12-2010 (4)

A little bit of house-keeping for the new year!

The Heritage Hangar would appear to no longer be in use for the housing of aircraft (it now contains various tractors etc), and as I have seen several of the aircraft that used to live in it for sale on the internet I assume that they have moved away from the airport.
This means the following are no-long based:
G-MZLG Rans S6

The  following former inmates of the hangar are as follows:
G-CGEU Dragonfly would appear to have moved into the main hangar along with the other based flex-wing microlights.
The fate of the incomplete Jodel fuselage, which is to my knowledge still an on-going project, is at this time unknown.

Another couple of changes is the move of G-LUNG out of the main hangar and into a private container opposite the helicopter hangar & the arrival of G-CFZX a MTO Sport which lives in the helicopter hangar & is owned by a flying school on the airfield.

Other than the above changes it's been a very quiet few weeks at Barton, with the airfield being shut to fixed-wing aircraft until the last few days & then only open to based aircraft. Hopefully the weather will improve in the new year & a few good visitors will be about!

A quick catch up of some recent changes to the based aircraft.

G-RVRY would appear to have left again with the return of G-RVRU.
G-WHOA has been re-registered G-XBJT and has a new owner.

Another minor change with the based flying school aircraft...

It appears that G-BZXJ has returned to Liverpool and G-CBCN has replaced this. It is confirmed that G-CBCN is present however G-BZXJ has not yet been confirmed to have left.
