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.
