I was watching the stream of arrivals into Manchester this afternoon and saw two Virgin Atlantic A340-600's within 20 minutes of each other.

Can anyone tell me if this equipment is standard for flights into MAN? I often see the 744's coming in, but not the Airbus.

Best wishes,

Possibly a fog diversion. We had one at Gatwick too for this reason.

There have been alot of problems in the South East with fog today, these are most likely diversions. Keep an eye out on http://www.ringwayreports.co.uk/ringway.htm for any news.

Did you see the Kenyan Airways B737 (5Y-KYE) on delivery that was also diverted? Landed around 12.30. Departing tomorrow to Cairo.

We also had a Kthy Kibris and a PK A310 from STN and LHR. I was hoping for an A380... sadly not!  Sad
