I was coming down thru a park today with some friends at about 1245. I heard a really loud aircraft and I immediatly looked up to the sky to catch, what I thought could have been a delayed Delta 767-300 coming in, but I was really surporised to see an Emirates 777-??? climbing out (I wasn't sure if it was a 200 or a 300 but I thought it was a 200 ?-:| ) from Edinburgh airport. I knew that it was climbing out as it was waaay too low to be descending for GLA. I did however think that at first as I found out just a few days ago that EK take a northern track into GLA, but this was so low. (Plus, the plane was climbing.  Smile )
Can anyone explain to me why EK were at EDI today?? Was it a medical diversion or was there something going on at GLA. I tried to phone Edinburgh and Glasgow Airports but I could not get through to either as.  bored 
Oh and btw, I knew that it was EK as there is no mistaking their tail.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

A6-EMD at GLA today.

Nothing on ACARS for EK at EDI today and no mention on any EDI forums. So sorry to doubt you, but from what I can see there was no EK at EDI today.

It's ok, but I know it was EK, it was the tail, and I am probably wrong about them being at EDI, I just saw them. I do wish I had my camera tho.. I would have gotten a picture  Smile
