Last ADS-B position puts it on the ground at EGAL!  Curious.

Seems to have been a survey task, operated over NI between 1700 and 2200ft until departing at 16:10.  Does not appear to have landed during that time.

Last chance to see in October for PIA711 & 721 westbound EGCC Manchester to KJFK New York, usually with B77L AP-BGY or -BGZ.  Often routes NW over Larne and the north coast. 

The eastbound reciprocals are non-stop to Karachi and Lahore and usually route much farther north or south.

Pakistan International are ceasing all US-bound services as of 31 October and switching to code-shares. They will continue services to Toronto but those routes seldom approach NI.
