747-400 At NCL?

well, i was just sitting in the garden minding my own business today when i heard an aircraft on approach to RW25 at NCL. No big deal as i live on the approach, it is not uncommon, although this one appeared to be louder than normal. As such I glanced up and was shocked to find a 747-400 on approach to NCL. Registration A6-HRM so the Emirates private 747-400 (not sure of the story behind it).

Does anyone have any idea of why it was here? Anyone live in the area and saw it as well?

Thanks in advance
Gary

Possibly picking up banknotes? Same reason why NCL gets a Kuwait Airways A300 (usually) 2-3 times a year.
Or is this something else?

Was the Prince of Dubai leaving after Grouse Shooting. Usually he uses a 737 though. Pic here:

yes quite possibly. Belgravia are looking to invest in the club, don't know their background though, could be an arabic connection.

hmm, unsure of this, just a very usual aircraft to use for NCL.

GKirk, thanks for the link and the pic.

BTW, anyone know what time it left?

Thanks

I think Belgravia are acting on behalf of the Makhtoum brothers.
