Transaero 747 At ARN Yesterday

Fri Feb 02, 2007 10:06 am

Yesterday (1 February) I saw a 747 from Transaero at ARN. I was really amazed to see it there, as UN usually does not fly to ARN at all. Does anybody have any idea what the airplane was doing there?

It had a UN flight number, and went onto a pax gate.
It was in ARN around 4 Nov last year as well.

I think it was at gate 17, but I was unable to check the flight number and origin/destination. I just noticed that it was not listed on the public departures/arrivals monitors.

According to a post on swedish forum g-kraft, it was a tech-stop for re-fueling. Incidentally, they also managed to have an indicdent with pax wanting to get off to have a smoke, but that's another story.
