Hi,

I am trying to identify three aircraft seen on this date.

It was pretty dark, hence the descriptions.

1. A B737 with a blue tail. The tail had a white disc with a red logo on it.

I suspect this Belavia B737-524, but confirmation would be useful.

2. A Norwegian Air Shuttle B737, (prob not a B737-800) with a "face " logo on the tail.

I suspect the following;

3. A largeish aircraft, (prob B767 size). It had a blue tail, and possibly cabin roof. There was a red logo on the tail, possibly a star.

The closest I can find is a First Choice B757, but the blue does not seem dark enough and the star looks too large.

Many thanks.

I thought you meant this until you said red logo

Hi all,

Swiftski

Mny thanks for your help.

LHR Local

I arrived shortly after 5pm and left just after 6pm.

By188b

Many thanks for the list.

Number 1 definately had a white disc on the tail, so no cigar on that one.

Number 2 was definately Norwegian and at the time could only be LN-NOB. Clearly I was wrong about the type, (it was getting very dark at the time).


Number 3 based on size has to be Emirates or Thomson. I will do a bit more searching.

Many thanks.

David

I think that these are the ones, many thanks.

How I mixed a CRJ and a B737, I do not know.

Yes, it was dark but clearly stronger glasses are needed.
