What I saw on FR24 was coming up as an AN12 and it was at FL250 - but then again FR24 isnt always exactly reliable  ::)

I think there must have been 2 going over around the same time.  UAF1302 was definitely a B737 with no colour scheme or markings that I saw through binos.  I missed the AN12 and picked up the other OTT on Planefinder.  Cheers Hasy

UAF1302 was an A330-243MRTT ex Manchester

The AN-12, callsign UKL4089 was showing as UR-CAH and routed into Prestwick.
