I was on the Isles of Shoals (Islands off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire) on August 27th, and at about 1:30 PM, an AN-124 flew over heading south and then a about a minute later, banked west, descending toward the mainland. I saw that plane again later that evening at Sunset, so I was just wondering if anyone has any info on what this plane was doing. I tried the Boston PASSUR tracker, and only got its altitude (about 4700 feet), then it just disappeared off the tracker (it was listed as General Aviation, so I'm not sure if that was it or not). no pics, but I would appreciate it if anyone could help me in any way. Thanks!

''The AN-124 needs special permission to land at BOS"
i have been in to BOS quite a few times on the AN124 and cant remember anything about needing special permission, just the usual FAA and Customs stuff

Hmmm.. I must have missed it if it went into PSM. I was monitoring the scanner on Wednesday evening. You're positive that it wasn't a C5, correct? There are a couple of white/grey ones floating around.
