To all LHR, FRA, ZRH spotters,
the new A340-600 arrives at Frankfurt Airport on Saturday, 27th at 12:00 for some parking tests at the terminals.
On Sunday, 28th it will depart to ZRH at 6:00 a.m., arriving ZRH at 7:00 a.m.

Before its FRA visit it will be at LHR but I don´t know any times there. It will probably depart from LHR at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

I hope you guys will be able to catch it! Good luck to all!
I will be waiting here at Frankfurt.

Regards from FRA
Ivica

Staffan - BRU? No, you just be content with all your Sabena 737's and 146's Big grin

AviationIvi - I have yet to visit LHR with my new digi cam so have no pics to upload, I do have some shots from LHR on airliners.net but from 1 year ago so not very good!

Paul - How do you always know times of Concorde/New VS arrivals/A340-600? Are you an insider?

4pm @LHR tomorrow? That would be a 27L landing, right?

I just hope my cold does not get worse, and the weather is reasonable - then I might actually join you guys and take pics of the big bird!

11am? Not a chance in hell I'll be able to be there. Got an "Aircraft Structures" lecture at that time... Bugger.

If the time changes back to 4pm, could someone post it please? Otherwise I'll just sit around at home feeling miserable for missing a chance to see the longest passenger plane land...

I saw it at ZRH and took about 2 rolls Fuji Provia!!

AWESOME!!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You should have seen the crowd who was there to see that bird live, on the terrace, and on the ground. Ground handling cars of BA, IB, LH, El Al, Swissport, and others were there. Some Follow me cars were there, caterig cars, crew member cars, it was huge to see the fascination, which came from this aircraft.
