KLM B747-406 PH-BFR (34,000ft) looks like a possible OTT NI for anyone with clear skies,and BA B747-436 G-BNLW (37,000ft)from NW in next few minutes.

Also on FR24 and a poss OTT at 33,000ft is BA A380-841 G-XLEE,from NW track 121 degrees.

I just managed to see the A380;it went directly OTT my house,but it was snowing a little so I couldn`t get a shot until it passed through the cloud.
I will post up a pic if its useable,was hard to stand up in the fierce bitting wind-brrrrr! :(


Maybe someone else will have better luck.

I was amazed last year when I found a 767 at 43,000!  I didn't think they had the ooomph to make it that high.

From the logs it was G-BNWT on 15th September.  Westbound out of Heathrow and it had already hit that, must have been light that day.

I just spied QTR 8107 B777-FDZ A7-BFF at 29,425ft,looking good for OTT Belfast,track is 302 degrees ,so if it stays on that it should go direct over BFS.

West of Blackpool now.

Drat,has clouded over at BFS,but no matter as QTR has changed to 288 degrees-may go OTT Portadown area.

If what I read on another site over the weekend is correct these two flew from the Beech factory to Des Moines so may be amongst those mentioned here - NZ1408 and NZ1409

Going back over Ards now heading NE again.  Has  been busy today, already made one round trip to Billund in Denmark.

That's where that  Campbeltown 328 went last week; what's the attraction in Billund?  Possible answer: the original Legoland, apparently.

Always unusual to see an aircraft with an Hinomaru under the wing.  Nippon Cargo B748 over Donegal at 14:55 heading our way

http://fr24.com/NCA182/5743ceb

Update: Huh, that's a swizz.  Just the reg under the wing now :(
