Beluga - When Does It Come To Chester?

Fri Jun 23, 2006 5:18 pm

Hi folks,

Over the next few weeks, I'd love to get down to Hawarden to see the Beluga ....

Problem is, I've no idea when it arrives/leaves - is there a short term movements plan or is the transportation of wings purely ad-hoc? I guess there's not much else to see at Hawarden so I'd rather not wait for days for one to show up  bored 

Do any fellow a.netters have details of the Beluga movements - perhaps even for next week if possible?

Thanks in advance folks!

Fridays at 6pm you'll see it circle above the M56 on it's approaches to land.

This seems to be a fairly regular end of week flight in.

Ive seen a number of accidents on the M56, I suspect not unrelated to drivers watching it come in, as from the air it distinctly stands out as bigger than the rest.
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY
