FR24 is showing SRN342 inbound BHX from MST, but gives no info on aircraft type. A quick web search indicates SRN as Sprintair of Poland. Anyone have any further info?
Also, The Ruby Star An-12 has just departed BHX.
Kevin, i heard the Ruby Star An-12 depart yesterday evening. Had to turn the TV up!!. Seriously though, it's great to hear them. In fact it is so quiet again at BHX any aircraft passing over is given an extra glance!. The An-26 are also noisy beasts!.
Just heard An-12 UR-CAJ go over my house here in Cambridgeshire outbound BHX to N/A. It went over at about FL190 and had a very distinctive sound. Great to be able to immediately check FR24 to see what it was, unlike my early days of spotting when you would have to wait for something like Stansted Aviation News and try and tie it up.
I heard that depart off runway 33 Kevin. Hard not to!!. But I don't mind hearing those old warhorses at all. They are nearly as old as me!!. I use FR24 and also Planefinder ( the £2.99? version) . A mixture of the two works well. Planefinder has some limitations but is useful as it flags most airliners with the operators logo.
