AF A340 In YYC 06/23/2012

Mon Jun 25, 2012 4:20 pm

Good Morning,

A buddy of mine swears that he saw what looked like an Airbus A340, with what definitely looked closest to an Air France tail (blue, red & white) anyone have any ideas? Was it maybe a diversion or something? Tried to find something on Flightaware and came up empty..Any insight would be appreciated..Thanks

Just left this morning and saw it. It's not AF. Its tail is red blue and yellow or something similar but looks a lot like the AF design. Probably a UK army charter?
