I cant find anything out of the ordinary on flight aware but at about noon a strange large twin passed over my house on approach to AUS. It had a very distinctive noise to it - very low pitch that I haven't heard before. It sounded like some 787 videos I found online. My first thought was that it was united's new 787 but the bottom was pained dark blue near the tail. I cant find any pictures of 787s painted like this. Anyone notice anything strange at AUS today?

Ah yes

You saw the Ultra Exotic Delta 757-200 Flight 1858 that arrived at 12:09

Airbus 300/310? are they still in the skies?

I am confident huxrules would be able to tell a 757 from another plane, if he is hanging around this site

Tunisair also flies A300-600s, my best short/medium haul flights of recent years.
