POSS a Russian AF hex140841 dept SNN Heading NE Should pass east of ards on present track

Solid clouds and rain here unfortunately but it didn't sound 'heavy'; not an An-12 or Il-76 anyhow.

Update: Found him on Shannon LiveATC using callsign [US] Army 140841

14-0841 Beech 350C C/n FM-12

Which is interestingly still on the FAA register as N148AA

http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=148AA

Registered to an opaque Delaware company that only seems to exist for the purpose of registration.  Its Zip code puts it nicely at... Dover AFB

Hmmm sneaky-beaky.

They also have B350 N250AA c/n FM-25
