Americans first MAX!
It would be great if anyone could help me identify this plane! It’s parked at EGCC (MAN) Looks like a Boeing cockpit but those engines, body and wings! And before anyone says it’s a 747 this is what it looks like -
Looks like an A340-500 or perhaps -300. Livery is unidentifiable for me.
Hmmmm…looks like a Hifly Airbus A340-500.
Could be Hi Fly with the blue engines. They operate the A340
Why would they be in Manchester?
They do charter flights and codeshare flights, so it wouldn’t be weird for them to be in Manchester.
I know that Antonov! It had a problem with it left wing some time ago at ANU. When it was parking, it’s left wing struck a light pole at the airport.
Company’s like Boeing or Airbus can use the same Registration on its aircraft more than once. FR24 is just showing the aircraft the reg was used on
It’s actually based in Stockholm Arlanda.
What is there which wouldn’t appear on Flight Radar? Every so often, something passes overhead late in the night, often after midnight, only when I attempt to view whatever it may be on Flight Radar, there’s nothing there.
The aircraft can be identified by the positioning and number of its anti-shock bodies, the narrow pods on the underside of the wings. It is an Airbus A340, though I couldn’t tell you the specific model.
It could be a military aircraft, which doesn’t show up on FR24
It’s a stopover to drop off and pick up passengers
yep :) i dont think it’s daily tho, but I might be wrong
like delhi to sanfrancisco is only a couple times a week
Certainly not what I was expecting from a helicopter icon. Probably the wring picture because I don’t know why they would be flying a British airways prop in Arizona.
