I was sitting at Gatwick yesterday afternoon and observed what looked like a miniature Antonov. I was unable to see any registration .
What did I see?

This was the one, it has the same graphics on the tail as the one, yesterday. There was an all white A320 I believe it was with a rego starting with OK. Presume this is Czech. But the all white with no lettering or tail graphics is rather unusual I would think.

Those are nifty looking planes. It would be nice if Antonov would get its act together so they could sell a bunch.
What the...?
