First of, I apologize if this title is misleading. I could not think of a better one.
I hopped on to FR24 and I see an Air China plane North of Mozambique, I click on it and it is the Presidential 747-400 going from Addis Ababa to Unknown, it doesn’t say. What I can tell you it came from Beijing and flew direct to Addis Ababa. At the time of writing this post they are East of FQLC, I believe they are flying UM310>VBR>UM307>UQ2 then the WIV4A approach into the 03R X CI03R arrival.
Now this plane is heading to Beira if it is flying the UM310 airway, then it could possibly be transiting over Beira, to the UM307 which is direct to FAOR, Johannesburg. They could have taken a more direct route to JNB from ADD.
My hopes are that they do come to JNB, because then I will be on my way to spot them. Air China does have a direct service with the 777-300ER, but it lands early in the morning, usually on days that don’t work for me. Even though I always do it to catch the arrivals from all over, as that is usually when the heavies come.
From what I can see she is quite a rare bird and doesn’t fly to often, so this will be a gem for me to catch.
Does anyone know how to check where this plane is going too?
Thanks for the help!
