I saw an all white, no markings anywhere A340-300 land at YYC around 2:30pm. Any idea who it is for??

Thanks

Should be the Portuguese carrier Hifly again, their A343 has been flying quite frequently between YYC and PAD for the past few weeks (transport for British Military).

The only A343 FlightAware shows for today is Lufthansa and it's arrival and departure time doesn't fit in with the OP's time.

So whoever the operator of the A343 appears to have the flights blocked from the various flight tracking sites.

Interesting. If it really is a British military flight, maybe it wouldn't show on radar for security?

Trust me, I've seen the all white A343 at PAD this morning waiting for my flight's departure. It came in from YYC at 8:45 and flew back to YYC later. Plane should be at YYC just as I type. There is another flight tonight, arrival at PAD at 08:05 tomorrow (already delayed until 9:25), look here:

Plane afterwards flies ferry to LIS, see here:

I'm sitting in front of the plane in question right now (I'm at gate D45). Registration is CS-TQM and there are lots of (very young looking) British Army - 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers - soldiers loitering around. I have also seen several soldiers running in and out of the plane.
