I was out running errands around IAD this afternoon, and around 240, I saw an all-white A340-300 land. Flightaware has no records of this plane landing, and the IAD flight schedules only list 2 A340s- the AF and IB- both of which arrive around 4pm. The OS93 arrival is scheduled around 220, but I had thought OS had disposed of their A340 fleet. Does anyone know the identity of this mystery bird? Thanks in advance.

It probably was OS, as they do have an A340-300 that is all-white, OE-LAK. It's scheduled to leave the OS fleet in the near future.

Yes I have seen that same aircraft in Toronto. And it was Austrian. Even saw their flight attendants with the women in red nylons - looks kinda like some kind of stork/flamingo but with red legs  Big grin

Why would OS keep in an all white livery like that?
