A nice wide bit of ground might have to be bought too. Those things are a PITA to park.

Is this a normal route for LGW to BFS or has the pilot realised at the last minute he wasn't supposed to be going to dublin?

Normal. Usually they don't fly over the middle of Wales but Belfast bound flights often overfly Dublin Airport.

Has an extra button that the others don't have. However if it's pressed a P45 automatically gets printed

Boost? Some form of power increase for short field or increased climb performance maybe?

Reminds me of this...

Affirm, increases normal take off torque by 10%. Intended for operations in Hot and High environments.

But seriously, don't touch the button however tempting!!

Cool. "If" the boost is used, I presume it must be logged and prolonged use may result in shorter engine life overall?

Must be very heady to have in places like Malaysia and the tropics.

Does anyone know what is wrong with Jet2 G-GDFB. Did a flight from Newcastle to Dublin on 4th Jan via northern Scotland then didn't fly until 5th Feb and flew from Dublin to West Ireland and back to Dublin. Done a short test flight as well this morning.
Thanks

There may not be anything wrong with it, its likely just test flights, pilot training etc. You often see flights heading out over the Atlantic and West of Ireland for that. The aircraft probably isn't needed during the quiet winter season.

This just flew over my house. It's been a long time since I've heard or seen a Beechcraft fly over. The last time would have been the Baldonnell based one(s).
