Airbus A300B4-608ST Super Transporter Frm Hawarden

Mon Jul 18, 2005 5:12 am

From where I currently reside, I often see aircraft approaching for landing at LPL. These include FR, U2 and BE. But last week, low and behold, I saw the impressively large Airbus A300B4-608ST Super Transporter climb shortly after takeoff from Hawarden. Now, does anyone know its schedule? I saw it parked-up while on the train from Chester to Bangor earlier that day.

doesn't BAe build the A320(incl subtypes)/A330/A340 wings in Hawarden. They are flown to Toulouse/Hamburg so this is a regular route for the Beluga. I even recall the runway at Hawarden had to be strengthened when Airbus made the change Super Guppy-->Beluga.
