Was just watching the arrivals into Louisville tonight, as the weather is quite bad, and noticed this guy. Looks like Shorts Brothers may have some secret weapon for the US. Check out the altitude. It's reading 99900 feet.

Looks cool, but unfortunately that's just the scheduled altitude (why it is scheduled like that, I have no idea). The actual en route altitude is much more reasonable.



Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

This at 100k feet, that would be a sight to see.  Wink

That's just a Flightaware error. There's been a lot of them since they updated their servers a week or two ago.

Trying to save gas, of course. The stuff it the tanks might exceed the value of the stuff in the cargo.

They changed it. Originally it was showing 99900 feet.

US' new secret weapon. The wings don't fall off and the plane doesn't explode at high altitude.
