Airways Above Holland!

Tue Sep 07, 2004 9:59 pm

Hi all,

This afternoon I had another boring lesson at school so as usual I started watching out of the windows. And as usual with a clear sky as today (you could see) a lot of planes flying by. ALL of them (exept one plane with 4 engines, don't know which) in the same or on the way back route. Nice to see BTW.
Where I live (in Zwolle, the Dutch people know where that is) is one of the busiest skies in the world.
Can somebody give me a map of airways/routes of (above) Holland??

One other question. Every plane that flew by looked white (the bottom)BUT one plane immediately pulled my attention. The color scheme was/looked like all orange! I'm almost certain it was a plane with 2 engines. Certainly not 4 engines. It wasn't a Fokker or any other plane with engines at the tail.
It flew by at 1300 (GTM+1).In the region of Zwolle. It was at cruising altitude, around 160 KM from AMS.

Anyone ANY idea which plane it could be? Which airliner, where it was heading to etc? I was thinking of an TNT plane, really don't know.

Could the orange plane have been Virgin Express?

Hey, my best friend is from Zwolle, but she is living here in London now.

Nice to hear about your friend  Smile Zwolle rocks but London also, I'm coming the 25th Big grin.

It really could have been a Virgin Express plane:

No Virgin Express, but A A300 TNT plane.
Probably heading for LIEGE(BEL) EBLG.
TNT is a courier service like UPS and has its main base in Liege.

Welcome to Airliners.Net. Nice that you joined  Smile
But are you sure about the TNT jet?
BTW: I even worked for TNT so I already knew the information you told but thanks anyway.
