Flightradar24 Findings


#3638

Americans first MAX!


#3639

This is the first time I’ve seen an A321N on here…


#3640

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 -


#3641

Looks like an A340-500 or perhaps -300. Livery is unidentifiable for me.


#3642

Hmmmm…looks like a Hifly Airbus A340-500.


#3643

Could be Hi Fly with the blue engines. They operate the A340


#3644

Why would they be in Manchester?


#3645

They do charter flights and codeshare flights, so it wouldn’t be weird for them to be in Manchester.


#3646

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.


#3647

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


#3648

It’s actually based in Stockholm Arlanda.


#3649

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.


#3651

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.


#3652

It could be a military aircraft, which doesn’t show up on FR24


#3653

I didn’t know they operated this route…


#3654

Yep. Defiantly an A321…


#3655

It’s a stopover to drop off and pick up passengers


#3656

yep :) i dont think it’s daily tho, but I might be wrong
like delhi to sanfrancisco is only a couple times a week


#3657

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.


#3658

Regestration change?

EDIT: Just read “operated by Transavia” 😳😬

That’s odd though🧐
