A strange A310 approached into CMB just now, likely from P762 or G465 routes.
It had an Air France like tail.
I have no proof to backup that it is an A310, but I am 99% sure it was.
My first guess was that this could have been yet another wet lease by SriLankan and could have operated today's UL316. But then I found that UL316 had not been scheduled to operate today, for some reason.
There are no other scheduled arrivals from SIN/KUL side at this time to CMB. And there aren't any 310 arrivals into CMB from South East Asia either. Anybody got any idea what it is ? It must have touched down at around 1235L ( 0705Z ) at CMB.
What made me to write this thread was that an aircraft with a similar sound ( and I could not see it ) arrived at around 0725L as well. And there was no other similar scheduled arrival at that time either.
The pilot seemed to be either highly experienced or never visited CMB. Came rather low, and made a quick turn into right which is rather unusual for where I live.

CPH-R, very likely. Or, could in fact have been exactly that. The tail is almost identical. But one thing that could be figured out was that, the pilot was a pro on the type.
Any idea what it was doing here ?
EDIT: This was probably F-RADC. Did some research. RADA had been recorded over Germany yesterday, while it seems RADB hasn't moved anywhere after 09/ 01.
