Dept. about 13.45 for Dublin city (Dublin Castle?) was on the ground for about 40 mins then back over Baldonnell about 14.30 going west the north.

    I've never seen a Gazelle in an all grey scheme - i wonder are some of them going to adopt it permanently like the Army Islanders?
    If it makes an appearance at EGAB i'll be out with the camera! :D

    Yes it was a bit of a surprise about the all over Grey scheme on the BA Gazelle !. I had a good look as it passed over head very slowly just before it landed. The Grey scheme is like that of the Islander CC.2?s (medium sea gray ) with low vis markings. It had the standered ??TV antenna?? on it?s nose plus side mounted rocket rails (not in use this time around I may add!) After departing Dublin and back over Baldonnell at about 2,000 ft (bit odd if your going north ) it made it?s way back to Aldergrove at about 14.30. first of all going west!. so keep a look out!

    It is Grey /Green scheme reg ZB693, a picture was posted on Irish Air Pics Message Board in the Alouette retirement thread.
