Morning A340 Arrival At IAD?

Thu Apr 01, 2004 4:01 am

Does anyone know what the (approximately) 11am Airbus 340 arrival at Dulles is? It seems to have a light blue arc-like design on the tail (vertical empennage). I often see it fly overhead Fairfax VA on the final right turn to one of the runways.

11am is too early for a European arrival, right?

Thanks for any pointers.

SK may use 340, but usually arrives after noon, could be a Saudi government or other private 340 as they frequent IAD
