19 MAY

B772 OE-LPF AUA66
Passed over NI 05:00 to 05:33 eastbound at FL340

C/n 28692 an airframe with a curious history, entered service 2001 with Varig but was seized by the lessor ILFC at LFPG in 2003 due to debts.  Re-entered service in 2003 but was parked in 2005 for same reason and had a brief reprieve until 2006 Varig went bust.

Subsequently sat in storage for long periods other than two years with Aeromexico.  Entered service with Austrian Airlines in April 2017.  Wears a commemerative '60 Years' livery.

Noted recently several green-airframe G280s on delivery westbound.  It appears that IAI-Gulfstream are now using EGSS Stansted as the staging airport instead of EGAA, which makes sense as there is a Gulfstream facility at EGSS.

Virgin Atlantic G-VNAP passed over Northern Ireland. Recently brought out of years of storage to cover for RR Trent 1000 issues. Shame it's cloudy.

A359 F-HREV
Crossed Ireland heading SE around 15:00 onwards today at FL410

https://www.flightradar24.com/2018-05-20/14:00/12x/FBU711/116fd6a9

Operated by the new airline French Bee, originally called French Blue but name changed due to a protest by Jet Blue.  However the ICAO designator remained FBU and the livery icon remained a butterfly.

Service commenced 12 May 2018 assisted by their second A359 F-HREU
