I was in an exam today and I saw a plane go over. Being the aviation lover that I am I stopped my work to look to the skies! I saw what I think was either a 757 or an A300, I didnt see much off it so I cant be sure. Now the airline is the main thing I would like your help on. From what I saw it was basically all white, an airline name written on the forward fusalage in the style of Sri Lankan (I thought it was one of their A330's at first) but the tail had what looked like orange or red on.

Any help you can give or any questions you have please dont hesitate to comment.

P.S The aircraft was either going in or out of London Gatwick

Kind Regards

Ben Pritchard

Sounds like it could be Emirates, with the new bigger titles....

Could've been the Royal Nepal 757 that operates occasionally into LGW.

Dunno though, could've been any of the other's that have been suggested.

Could well have been a Royal Nepal 757 that operate into LGW occasionally.

Obviously you'll never know for sure though! Could be either of the other suggestions.

Please note that Emirates only operate the A330 from Gatwick, so it couldn't have been the A300.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I sometimes have trouble identifying aircraft but I struggle to conceptualise how you cannot tell a 757 or an A300 apart. One is narrow body the other widebody for a start!!

I could understand a confusion between 767 and A300 but 757??? They are so distinct!

Ben,

Give us a clue what time it was!

If it was the Emirates flight then that landed around 06.10 and departed around 11.05 and was A6-EAD

Regards

Paul

Youve got it, it would have been just after 11, so it would have been the EK 330.cheers for ya help.
