A380 In LIS Today?!

Just 10 minustes ago I saw a big 4-engine plane flying out of Lisbon, it was mostly in clouds so I couldn't see it well. What I did see was that it wasn't a 340 (as it climbed much faster than they do, and looked different), and it certainly wasn't a 747 either.

It seemed to have the Airbus livery, white with blue tail, blue continuing on rear fuselage.

Did I just see an A380? Or an Il-96 perhaps?


I scratch my head, therefore I am.

Come on LIS bunch! Nobody able to shed a light on this? Even if it wasn't an A380 then still it must have been a very unusual visitor...

The ANA website doesn't mention any obvious flight around that time, so it must have been something unusual anyway.

No A380, but the usual IL96 from Cubana.

OK, issue resolved. Cheers.
