A340 just out of BFS
« on: October 02, 2010, 03:37:23 PM »
Think I just saw an A340 climbing out in a left hand circut from BFS-probably another Mil charter:strange that it turned hard left after takeoff and headed in direction of Carrickfergus almost parallel to track for 25 approach.
 
Didn`t have my camera ready,it was in it`s case.
 
No markings I could make it out,looked like an all over off white scheme.

Thanks for the info :)
 
-When I saw it I hoped it was arriving in the overhead,and was positioning to land on 25;then I would have got time to put my camera together.

Saw this coming in over Lisburn (as it headed towards Belfast and presumably round to Aldergrove) but didn't have camera at hand. It was also in and out of the low cloud. Was going to post to see if anyone had any idea what it was but my question has already been answered! Thanks!
