Had some free time for a change and managed a couple hours on the south side of runway 2. Summer operating hours mean that R2 is in use from 1pm onwards until 8pm in the evening. These were from 1pm until around 3pm. Tuesdays are normally a bit of a dud day, but there were a few interesting departures today.

Air Transat C-GFAT - a regular at Mcr
