A380 In LIS Today?!

Mon Mar 20, 2006 8:06 pm

Just 10 minustes ago I saw a big 4-engine plane flying out of Lisbon, it was mostly in clouds so I couldn't see it well. What I did see was that it wasn't a 340 (as it climbed much faster than they do, and looked different), and it certainly wasn't a 747 either.

It seemed to have the Airbus livery, white with blue tail, blue continuing on rear fuselage.

Did I just see an A380? Or an Il-96 perhaps?
I scratch my head, therefore I am.

Come on LIS bunch! Nobody able to shed a light on this? Even if it wasn't an A380 then still it must have been a very unusual visitor...

The ANA website doesn't mention any obvious flight around that time, so it must have been something unusual anyway.

No A380, but the usual IL96 from Cubana.
