What Is This Aircraft/airline?

Sat Feb 18, 2006 6:41 am

While talking with some mates I saw this aircraft fly over my house and they all ask me "what is it Kevin...I bet you don't know" and today was that day when I said "I don't know" They all messed with my head saying that I have lost my touch. It must have been flying from Heathrow as it was quite low and I was in North West London at the time.
So I just wanted to know what you think it is.

Definitely a 76-300. I can't make out the carrier.

You can see my post here on Air Canada at LHR this year: Air Canada - 12 Daily LHR Flights This Fall (by B742 Feb 17 2006 in Civil Aviation)

AC currenly is using the 763 on YYZ-LHR and YHZ-YYT-LHR  Smile

Air Canada also use the A330-300 and A340-300 to LHR  Smile

I was thinking YYZ. I am going to check prices and flights for mid-late this year or early 2007.
