White 757 At LGW Today

Tue Feb 13, 2007 2:51 am

While I was driving past Gatwick on my way back to Uni today, I saw a plain white 757-200 landing. It was about 11:40AM.

What plane did I see?

Could it have been this C-32B of the U.S. Air Force?

"Excuse me, Madam Speaker, the 757 you requested is here."
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Could be Titan Airways G-ZAPU which was previously operating in the Titan blue scheme, now in all white ready for paint into new black and orange Titan livery. Its been operating a lot for British Airways recently.

No photos of it about in the internet though.

It wasn't this one was it? Plain white except for the lettering on the tail. If I remember right, this is actually a CIA operated aircraft?? I forgot the story on them, I remember reading something about them when I added them into my flight simulator a few weeks ago,

Looks just slightly dodgy! 'Comco' - hmmm, yes...

G-ZAPU is operating on behalf of Easyjet Switzerland today between Gatwick and Geneva.

So it is very likely that it was G-ZAPU that you saw!

Here she is in her stunning, now old Titan Airways blue livery.
