Oooh nice visitor!  Seems to have arrived last night but NOAA website doesn't state for how long it will be based.  Any ideas?

Hopefully this might give a better idea.  The previous visit in 2017 was 4 weeks.

The aircraft arrived Shannon on 26th around 0830.

Interesting to see that one return, it had departed to England 16 December 2017.  Perhaps for servicing?

How sure are you that this is correct? Have done a bit of digging and it's radar tracks seem to remain over North Wales, abet at FL230

I picked it up on SBS and was surprised that here I got it on my machine.  I was not suggesting that it was over Northern Ireland at any time.

This was previously picked up on 14/12/2017 and 24/12/2017 and considered a fluke.

Planeplotter entry below:

4072D6 GOSORZZZ G-OSOR    GLID 19025   21275   7000  7000  27/01/2018 15:29:48.
