A white SP with a red flag is most likely an Amiri flight from the Middle East carrying some VIP's they are frequent visitors here at LHR it will most likely by the description be from the UAE or from Bahrain. I doubt it would be the Qatari Amiri flight as pictured above as it doesnt have a red flag on the tail (it is a frequent visitor to STN)

I would guess at A9C-HMH

I just happened to be listening to JFK tower through the internet yesterday when I heard "Bahrain 2 heavy" as it was landing.

It was the plane in Tjwgrr's post. I didn't see what terminal it came from. I just saw when it was taxing to take-off.
