NASA 747SP nocturnal overflights
« on: February 20, 2021, 10:28:35 AM »
Somewhat academic since the overflights are during darkness, but NASA's N747NA is operating out of EDDK Cologne at present on long looping routes over the Atlantic.  These will continue into March.

A few nights ago it cross the Ards peninsula on the return leg, per screenshot.
