29AUG2021 / 1341Z - Jet2 Vectors for Final Approach @ EGSS

Good afternoon!

Hope you’re well!

It certainly has been a while once again for me on Infinite Flight!
Work has been super , Super Busy lately, and I’ve been too tired to commit to Infinite Flight, based on the hours I have been doing!

Some of you may or may not know, I work at Stansted Airport. However I’m not allowed to share here who I work for and what my job title is. You can imagine based on where I work, that the hours I have to start and work are somewhat ridiculous 😂!

Outside of work my life has been busy, with family and personal needs. Chores, and what not.


Anyway, life story over, onto the content of this Community topic!

This afternoon when I had a short window free, I was looking out at the planes that were flying near to my house. Listening into Stansted Director on 136.200MHz on my Uniden UBC125XLT Handheld Scanner, I was listening to Channex 1482 (Jet2 Flight LS1482) inbound from Kos in Greece (LGKO). I was also tracking this flight on Flightradar24 on my iPad.
The vectors he was given meant he flew over my house…
