Volga-dnepr IL-76 Landing At GLA Prestwick?

Fri Feb 10, 2012 3:30 am

Hello everyone, while on FlightRadar24 I noticed a Volga-Dnepr IL-76 RA-76503 descending just off the coast of Scotland. It was around 12000ft and then disappeared off the radar on the website but it seemed as it was landing at maybe Glasgow Prestwick. Can anyone confirm if it was going there or if not where it was heading.

Here it is on FlightRadar24, as I said it stops around 12000ft so where it was going is a mystery but defiantly seemed as if it was landing in Scotland somewhere:

They're quite regular, along with Antonov 124s

Oh right I never knew, your lucky to get such aircraft on a regular basis. Sure beats a certain orange type of Airbus!

Be amazed, and less of the GLA, that's Glasgow Airport.
