I didn't see the 747 unfortunately. Weren't there still thunderstorms in the area at that time.
I did however see a relatively low flying 747 right after I moved here in May. I was in my backyard cooking on the grill when a 747-200 approached from the east and circled over my apartment and headed southwest. I was assuming it was the Virgin 742 at MCO
just flying lower than normal.
I have seen MCO
bound aircraft fly at lower altitudes over DAB
too when there are thunderstorms around MCO
because I am not aware of any A320s that fly to SFB
, and that is what I saw at about 3500 ft 2 weeks back. Couldnt tell what company though because i was looking to the sun.
But I have seen SFB
bound aircraft like the Transmeridean MD
-80s fly at about 3500 ft along with various European 767s and A330s.
I looked at Flytecomm for SFB
and nothing is showing up for yesterday that would be flying 747s.
My only other guess is that it could have been the Atlanta icelandic 742 that Virgin uses. I have seen the all white 742 at MCO
. They may have gotten permission to fly below the clouds last night and perhaps were running late.
I don't think the EAL 747s come to SFB
