The Cessna pops in from time to time. It must be odd landing an aircraft
with two mainwheels and two nosewheels..

My elder daughter used to visit the base on Loch Erne, which came within 
her geographical remit. I was surprised she was never offered a flight, 
since this would have helped get her on-side, in what was then a hostile 
climate.

I think it's the same outfit that now has a licence to operate from the 
Clyde.

A couple of years ago I was startled to see a Cessna amphibian take off 
from Ronaldsway, when I was idling away an hour down there.
