Any reason for this routing?
Its an additional flight put on by the airline, one off though, one which demand was high for at the time, possibly to do with the ash cloud situation of late, im not sure.

Re: Movements & Heads Up

I wish I had the time to get over to Manchester. I can't believe I still haven't seen an A340.

I've been to Man a fair few times and only once have I seen a 340 there, and that one just said 340 on it, not 340-600.

I was there yesterday and there was a birdstrike on a landing Qatar jet. I didn't see anything hit but heard it on my scanner. I watched as the next two landings by a Thomson and a Jet2 were aborted and watched as someone drove onto the runway and went round picking up what must have been bird debris.

The 380 starts services there in September so that's a date for the diary!

Re: Movements & Heads Up

With the money City have you'd have thought they'd have gotten Concorde back into service to fly them out!!
And with Utd's huge debt wouldn't Easyjet have been more appropriate? :LOL:

A Transaero Boeing 747-200 was expected to land last week, to go to the TCX hangar for maintenance. However, the aircraft diverted into Filton, due to "unresolved payment issues with the MAG".
