Astreus A/c In The Circuit At EMA Last Night?

Wed May 24, 2006 10:34 am

Travelling down the M1 in my wagon last night I saw an aircraft doing circuits around 8pm. I struggled to make out what type it was as my recognition skills aren't as good as they used to be, but it might have been a 757.

I was fortunate to catch it in front of me as it crossed the M1 and saw the word "Astreus" on the lower forward fuselage and what looked to be 3 different size white stars on a blue tail, but didn't catch the reg. Does anyone know what it was, just out of curiosity? Unusual to see airliners in the circuit there.

Actually, airliner training is quite common at EMA... Currently, the Tinkers are the most regular, with Monarch and Virgin doing their bit from time to time. Last night it was Astraeus with 757 G-OOOB.
