Hello all,

I was looking through some e-mails at work and came across the daily flying programme for Blue Islands and it said that one aircraft G-ZBRA or something like that was performing a positioning flight from Dinard to Guernsey to Bournemouth today. It also said "Please can this flight operate as close to schedule as possible as due to the Olympics, Bournemouth airport will be slot constrained".

2 things, does anyone know about G-ZBRA (I'm pretty sure thats the correct reg) is it a new aircraft for Blue Islands? and does anyone know what is happening at Bournemouth for it to be slot constrained?

Any help would be appreciated

I think that you have the wrong reg

I expect it has to do with the sailing events. I've seen a few unusual aircraft heading to/from BOH today and the ramp there isn't the biggest in the world, which I expect would be the limiting factor on slots.

I will see if that e-mail is still there tomorrow so I can double check, I did look at CAA earlier hence why I was a bit confused.

PlymSpotter, I thought it was something to do with the sailing events. I thought theres loads of room at BOH, places all over the airfield they could park aircraft. I know there would be a few biz jets in but not to the extent that it would be slot constrained. Is there anything significant in?

Registration is not correct, try G-ZEBS.

It is the newly acquired ex AAT ATR42-300 (c/n 066).

The only area available to park is the small apron to the South of the runway, where the terminal/cargo center is. Once you take into account regular operations there isn't a great deal of space left.

It arrived for painting by Airbourne Colours.

Flight was by no means connected to the Oympics.

Thanks for the info guys! I checked the e-mail today and it is indeed G-ZEBS. I take it they are not going to bring back G-DRFC then
